Prostitution business – operating licence

Anyone who operates a prostitution business requires a permit from the competent public order office. A prostitution business is a business in which services in connection with the provision of sexual services by at least one other person are offered on a commercial basis or premises are provided for this purpose.

A permit is therefore required by any operator who:

  • 1. offers for use a prostitution establishment such as a building, individual rooms or other fixed installations for the provision of sexual services (e.g. as a brothel, puffhouse, running house, ...),
  • 2. provides a prostitution vehicle such as a motor vehicle, vehicle trailers and other mobile equipment for the provision of sexual services (e.g. buses, campers, caravans, boats, ...),
  • 3. organises or conducts a prostitution event for an open group of participants, at which sexual services are offered for remuneration by at least one of the persons directly present (e.g. gang-bang parties, orgies, ...) or
  • 4. operates a prostitution agency who arranges for at least one other person to provide sexual services outside the prostitution premises of the operator (e.g. call boy/call girl agencies, sex escort agencies, ...).
This also applies if it is only apparent from the circumstances that the services provided include sexual acts.

Those who wish to operate their prostitution business through a deputy require their own deputy permit for this purpose. Anyone who operates a prostitution business without a valid permit/deputy permit commits an administrative offence that can be punished with a fine of up to ten thousand euros.

Prerequisites

  • Legal majority
    The applicant or their representative must be at least 18 years of age.

The competent Public Order Office must obtain a certificate of good conduct for presentation to an authority from the Federal Central Criminal Register for the operator / their representative, as well as an excerpt from the Commercial Central Register and a statement from the police branch that is responsible for the place of residence, from a central police station or the responsible criminal investigation office for the respective federal state.

    • technical measures must be in place to ensure that help is available at all times.
