Hello all, new here and also new to detecting. I wanted to post here specifically because of the theme of LAWS. I'm living in Germany, Munich to be precise but come from Scotland. I'm now looking to metal detect an area close to Munich and would like to know about the laws detecting on ploughed fields, woods etc. The area i'd like to detect is very historical from WWII period and i don't know if landowners would happily agree for me so go around digging up such a brutal past.
The area concerned is Dachau, but not directly inside Dachau itself, some 2-5km outside it where there is a lot of fields. Dachau was the 1st Concentration camp and was a model for all others, Dachau (the village) was also taken over by the SS and this is where SS soliders were trained. Just outside and to the North of Dachau is Herbertshausen, another small but historically important place, this is where the SS used 4000 Russian POWs as live target practise. Dachau itself and Herbertshasen i'm not wanting to detect due to the sensitive nature, it's mainly the outskirts of these sites, maximum 5km outside. Any info regarding laws of such areas would be welcomed as i'm not really wanting to cheese anyone off, just a bit of detecting time.
