Smoking in restaurants

Smoking is prohibited in all restaurants. If the proprietor wants to allow smoking in an outdoor service area (terrace), he/she must make sure that tobacco smoke is not spread indoors through open windows, doors or ventilation.

A terrace is considered an outdoor space if at least two of its sides are open.

Smoking only

Restaurants can arrange a designated smoking area, in which people can only spend short periods of time. The area is intended for smoking only, so no serving and consuming food or drink nor  games and other such activities.

Working in the smoking area is also not allowed, with the exception of security, fire and rescue measures and other activities that are necessary for safety. Cleaning the smoking area is only allowed after it has been carefully ventilated.
