A security check is carried out at the entrance at Reichenspergerplatz, checking both persons and baggage.

All bags, parcels and other containers are put through a scanner to check for weapons of any kind (firearms, and blunt or sharp weapons) or other dangerous items.  Items thus identified are confiscated and retained either temporarily or permanently.

These security measures can lead to increased waiting times when entering the building.

Particularly during peak times between 08:00 and 09:30, and between 11:30 and 12:30 waiting times of up to 15 minutes are not unusual. Please ensure that you allow for some additional time to account for this, so that you attend your appointment on time and avoid the potential disadvantages resulting from turning up late.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused. These steps, which are being introduced at an increasing number of courts across Germany, form an important contribution to your increased safety.
