For filming and photography of locks, ship equipment or property you are required to obtain, with the exception of recordings for private purposes, a corresponding photo and film permit.

Photo and filming permits for news coverage are easily obtainable at short notice. Just contact us at presse[at] in advance with the time and location.

Film and television

The Danube, with its natural and urban riverbanks, ships, harbours, and waterways, is not only an attractive and photogenic location for natural and economic documentaries but also for filming. Recording for film and television purposes must be notified in advance. This allows us to make the necessary preparations within a reasonable time frame, thus ensuring the smooth running of your project. Please ensure that the completed application form is sent to us well in advance.

For your safety and trouble-free operations, we ask you to follow the instructions of our staff on location.
