Photography and Filming Permits

Photography and Filming Permits

In accordance with legal provisions, especially copyright and personal rights, photography and filming exclusively for private purposes is allowed without written permission. The photographer may also use a standard tripod. For all other structures, everyone requires written permission from VGF. Flash photography is not permitted on the transport levels.

Photography, filming and video recording which goes beyond pure private use, for example for advertising or film production, can only take place with a filming permit from VGF.

For this please fill out the application for filming and photography permits (german) and send it with a script, a summary of the plot or a storyboard via post (Kurt-Schumacher-Straße 8, 60311 Frankfurt), e-mail (presse(at) or fax (+49 (0) 69 213 22965) to VGF’s Corporate Communications. Your request will be handled as quickly as possible. Please note that we usually need at least 14 days to examine and deal with your request. 

Because the organisation and coordination of photography and filming presents work for all involved, VGF charges fees depending on the costs and size of the project.
