Tenants' responsibility to show house when on sale

Our rented house was not meant to be on the sales market, but now,much to my surprise and dismay, it is!!
If a landlord decides to put a house on the market, is the tenant required to allow agents and prospective buyers inside? If so, how often? Any insights?
Thank you!

Sorry to hear about your situation. Most leases clearly state under which circumstances the landlord and/or his agents have the right to visit the property. Most often this is to deal with repairs or maintenance. Also, if a tenant gives notice to move, there is an obligation to allow viewings.

A property for sale is, of course, a completely different of circumstances which is why I recommend that you join the Tenant's Association (Mieterverband), make an appointment to discuss your situation with someone, bring your lease and any other correspondence with you.
