What must I be aware of in terms of cultural protection?

Unfortunately, we are unable to transport any objects that come under the Cultural Property Protection Act (KGSG). A special export license is required for this. The processing deadline for the issuing of an export license is ten working days (section 24, para. 7, no.1 of the KGSG).

Cultural property is any item with existing cultural value that must be preserved. We are unable to transport these kinds of items. However, we will be happy to direct you to one of our reliable colleagues who will be able to help you. Simply write to us or make a note at the end of the booking process in the comments box. You can find more information on the Cultural Property Protection Act here.

Attached below is an overview of the age and value limitations for export of cultural property. Cultural property must always reach both thresholds (age AND value)!
