Living in the community

What rules of coexistence do I need to pay particular attention to in my community?

Life in the municipality or town and the pursuit of leisure activities are governed by many different legal regulations. As it is not always easy to find out what needs to be observed when living together, the most important regulations for your municipality or town are summarized in the topic "Living in the community" and presented in a user-friendly, comprehensible form. It also provides you with important information about your municipality or town that can make your everyday life easier.

This includes, for example, time restrictions for lawn mowing or other work, rules for washing cars on your own property, the obligation to clear snow and grit, regulations that must be observed when keeping dogs, such as the obligation to wear a muzzle and lead and the obligation to remove dog excrement, information on waste in the municipality or city and the most important contact details for your home municipality or city so that you can easily contact them if you have any questions.

Below you will find information on the topics mentioned, broken down by federal state, which the Editorial Staff received on request from the municipalities and cities. This topic is successively expanded.
