Among other things, posters are used to advertise events. Schleswig-Holstein hosts numerous cultural events. Concerts, readings, exhibitions or shows are part of the cultural diversity in Schleswig-Holstein.
Usually, statutes regulate the posting of bills and hanging up of posters in the corresponding community/city/office and where postering is allowed. Permitted advertising surfaces can be lamp posts, advertising columns, bulletin boards, or billboards at the entrance to built-up areas. Outside of roads through built-up areas postering is generally not allowed.
Putting up posters in public street space requires a permit (special-use permit). The permit is granted for a specific location or spot. Outside these designated advertising spaces postering is not allowed.
