Provided certain regulations are observed, citizens are allowed to barbecue and use suspended grills at the Staden or on the Burbacher Wiesen meadows. At the same time, citizens wishing to spend a few quiet hours down by the Saar can also have a good time - without being disturbed by other people’s smoke.
The areas at a glance
In doing so, the following rules are to be observed
The designated barbecue areas fulfil specific criteria. They are situated at least 50 metres from the nearest building. The green areas are sufficiently large to ensure that other uses are not hindered or impeded by barbecuing. No valuable vegetation is located in the immediate vicinity. The barbecue facilities are within easy view to ensure the greatest possible public and/or social monitoring.
Special containers are provided to allow disposal of the hot ashes.
Until 2013, barbecuing was absolutely prohibited by the State capital police regulation in all green spaces and parks in order to protect the public facilities and their recreational value. This was intended to protect local residents and visitors to the green spaces against unwanted smoke as well as damage to vegetation and the lawn.
Interest in public barbecue facilities has markedly increased over the past years. Grilling had actually been done for a long time at the Staden and on the Burbacher meadows. The city has now amended the green areas statute and designated specific areas where barbecuing is allowed. The areas where citizens (m/f) are now with immediate effect allowed to barbecue are signposted accordingly.
