My kids are building them all the time.

Do it well away from the main tracks and not in a really busy area and you should be fine.

That'll be fine.

Rules and expected behaviour are roughly this:
For your purposes you should probably avoid the wildlife refuges, "NaturSchutzGebiet", altogether. See here for a map of them. The roads and paths will have big signs at the entrances that are impossible to miss.

AFAIK most forests in the lower areas are private property, but they must be accessible by law to the public for recreational purposes (including yours). Fenced areas are the exception, they're off limits. Larger densely grown areas should be left alone and passed at a reasonable distance as they may be wildlife shelter.

Avoid nailing your shelter to the trees as that would damage the tree and reduce its value, rope is fine. Leave the place as you encountered it, take the waste with you, and the owners will be happy someone made additional use of it.

What lies randomly on the ground or can easily be picked is for the taking, including branches (dry or green doesn't matter), berries (wash them well) and nuts (shaking the tree/bush is Ok). Mushrooms can be picked, too, but only during the allowed dates and usually within limits, you probably want to have a PilzKontrolle check them for edibility. A counterexample are piles of firewood logs, they're arranged neatly and therefore to be left alone (yes it's common sense, but you asked ).

It is recommended to use the pre-built fireplaces to make fire, but only if general conditions are wet enough to make it safe. See here for current info.

If you're not sure it's a good idea to ask the people on the farms and fields you pass outside of the forest. For instance to get permission to make a fire without using a pre-built fireplace.
