All WW I and WW II battelfield and Invasion Beach areas in France are totally forebidden, and if you get caught you are in REAL HOT WATER !!
Metal dtecting in France is generaly forbidden without a permit, which needs to be applied for from the local Prefect. All detecting for artifacts of Archeological impotance is forbidden.

Spain, detecting for any artifacts of Archeological Importance is forbidden, All detecting in Allicante has been forbidden since last year or the beginning of this year, including beaches.

Most other areas of France and Spain, the beaches should be okay, but scuba detecting on wrecks is forbidden (As opposed to just wreck diving).
Complicated, but that?s mainland Europe. Basically you need a permit to wipe your butt, and the archies don?t or won?t give you one 99.9% of the time. If you find anything, it belongs to the state.  Idiot

Germany ain?t France or Spain !! Fields and parking lots they?ll let you off with the sorry I?m a tourist and didn?t know bit, but you get caught on a battlefield or archeological site, and your butt gets roasted. They?ve taken peoples cars, and detectors, plus fined them and banged them up overnight down there. They don?t play fair  No no! Police Wise

A while back they didn?t give a famn about anything except hunting the invasion beaches, but since a bunch of idiots got caught with tons of ammo (One had 34 tons in his garage, another almost 16,5 tons), including HE and Gas grenades, they?ve cracked down REAL HARD.

Most places in Germany (I?m here too), don?t bother too much outside of certain very heavily fought over areas where people have been digging up bodies for the ID markers and stuff like that. You get caught there now and you get hammered, no buts. A few bundesl?nder are still NO GO area?s as are some area?s of certain open thinking Bundesl?nder. You just have to know where you are as to what you can get away with, and it helps if the land owner gives his okay too.
