  13. fishing license in germany Fishing rod licence and permit in Germany - Where to fish? (fishinglicence.eu) 2.2 Foreign visitors: Except of the federal state Bremen and Hamburg, foreigners can obtain a fishing rod licence without passing an exam. Information on where to obtain the fishing rod licence can be found here. However, knowledge of German (a translator) is necessary and eventually some phone calls. Before you actually go fishing, make sure you have got a valid fishing permit from the owner for the particular water you want to fish!
