See a shrink ASAP. It is a hard life. My brother ran a restaurant for years and he was up at 4 AM every day and went home at Midnight

All kind of licenses and certificates. And all of course isonly available in German. I am not an expert, so I cannot tell you what exactly you will need, but you need the license to run a restaurant, and you need to get some certificates that proof you are understanding and respecting the food standards. Everyone working in a restaurant needs a health certificate. Most of the restaurants are leased from breweries on long term contracts. Here you will find the general rules and regulations to open a business in Germany: http://www.rhein-neckar.ihk24.de/produktmarken/recht/gewerberecht/GewerbeanmeldungGewerberecht.jsp If that has not scared you off, you can find an information sheet "what to look at when opening a reataurant" here: http://www.ihk-siegen.de/fileadmin/Geschaeftsfelder/Recht_und_Fairplay/Merkblaetter/Gewerberecht/Eroeffnung_einer_Gaststaette.pdf So if you are really interested in opening a restaurant, find someone who understands the sheets and can translate them. I am failing at part 1 although I am german. Bsically, you have to proove, that the facility is suitable for a restaurant, you are able to run a restaurant, you are healthy, your restaurant and equipment is according to all relevant health and safety standards and whatever. Seek sdvice from the local trade organisation IHK Koeln http://www.ihk-koeln.de/ And the local authority http://www.stadt-koeln.de/aemter/53/index.html The local organisation of restaurants http://www.bgn.de Honestly: Good luck!!!
