    Default Going to Berlin in May

    Just joined the forum - but have been lurking for a while.

    Going to go to Berlin at the end of May - are there any digging tours or tours of any kind that people know of or can recommend?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Maybe one of these underground tours? Berliner Unterwelten e.V. | Guided tours

    That is a good idea, but do you know of any digging trips where I can actually have an opportunity to perform some excavations?

    Not around Berlin. It is against the law to dig on any of the old WW2 battlefields in Germany as far as I recall.

    Not possible to do so, especially around Berlin.
    The laws do not permit it.
    Cheers.

    I see, thanks for your replies.

    What if I venture out further past Berlin, any such opportunities?

    Germany as US has state laws, each state has its laws.
    You read and investigate each of them, in order not have problems.
    The Germans take this very seriously.
    There are lots of museums and memorials, my advice is, dont dig.
    Cheers.

    The given answers are correct. In Germany each state has its own laws for the preservation of sites of historic interest. In some states you are allowed to own a metal detector and use it but you're not allowed to dig if you find something. You need a permit for actual digging. Especially the areas of Berlin, Brandenburg and Bayern have very strict laws and usually it's not allowed to walk around with a metal detector. All areas around Berlin - especially the WWII sites - are completely off-limits.
