Rules of Conduct

Eurofurence likes to present itself as a professional convention of friendly, respectful and open-minded members of the furry community and their friends. As a condition of membership, all Eurofurence attendees are required to abide by these rules of conduct for the entire duration of their stay, even prior to opening or after closing of the convention. When in doubt about any of these rules, please don't be afraid to ask - we will gladly answer all your questions. However, please understand that we will not debate these rules with you during the convention. The rules of conduct are enforced by the Eurofurence Security Staff who will be clearly identified as such on site. If you have any problem with any action taken by a Staff member you may take the matter up with the Chief of Security or the Chairman.


Any action or behavior that causes significant interference with convention operations, excessive discomfort to other attendees, or adversely affects Eurofurence's relationship with its guests, its venues or the public is strictly forbidden and may result in permanent suspension of membership. This general rule supersedes all others listed below and may be invoked at any time.

Please be aware that the atrium, the Beer Garden and the restaurants are public areas, and that there may be regular hotel guests around who are not taking part in our convention. Please help us give them the best possible impression of our fandom!



Portable music players can be a fun addition to all kinds of social activities. However, music that is played too loud can be a serious nuisance, and it's easy to forget how far your sound may carry. Pretending to be a one man fursuit dance may be fun to you, but sitting in the middle of a cacophony of conflicting music styles can be very stressful for your environment. Please turn down your volume, switch off your device when there is already playing music in the area, and avoid walking around with your music still playing. The only exception from this rule is the fursuit parade.



The limit for "adult themed" materials is the equivalent of a German FSK16 rating. When in doubt, please contact us either by email before the convention ( or ask at the Security Office during the convention.

When used as a fashion statement or part of a costume, the following items are usually allowed:

The following items are explicitly NOT allowed in public:

We may take the liberty to allow additional exceptions if your outfit is exceptionally discrete, tasteful and/or good looking - no promise, though.


You are expected to drink responsibly. You will be held responsible for what you do, under the influence or not.


Exceptions for staged events may be granted by the Chief of Security. Please inquire ahead of time - preferably before the convention.


The ban includes any sign or icon embodied in a physical object but also optical and acoustical symbols qualified to give an unbiased third party the impression of being a distinctive mark of any of the organizations mentioned above. It furthermore applies to variations or modifications similar enough to be mistaken for those symbols or intentionally obscured renderings of those symbols.


Further restrictions and rules may apply for certain events, as posted on location.


Many of the above rules involve "worst-case" scenarios and are put into place to ensure the safety and comfort of our attendees. Since most of them are common sense, there is usually not much need to enforce them. However, we are prepared to deal with any or all of the above scenarios in a rapid and efficient manner, should they occur. We thank our attendees for their past cooperation and for their continued assistance in keeping Eurofurence a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. Have fun, be nice to each other, and we will all have a great time!
