As a rule, events in public spaces require permits. Depending on the location where the event is to take place, these permits are issued by different authorities.
These are, for example, the green space offices for parks or the street and traffic offices or the public order offices for streets and other public spaces. You can find an initial overview of the most important permits and contact persons in the city of Berlin here:
In Berlin, the regulations vary from district to district. This means that you should always contact the office in the district where the event is to take place directly.
For example, if you want to play music or sell drinks, you will need a permit.
It's best to find out as early as possible from the relevant offices about the feasibility of the events!
On the website of the Berlin Project Fund Urbane Praxis you can find a checklist on approval procedures with Berlin authorities, which can also be helpful for your events.
