The message you get back from that is "The maximum bbox size is 0.25, and your request was too large. Either request a smaller area, or use planet.osm".

Which part of that response do you need help with - what the units of "maximum bbox size" are, why there's a limit on size at all, or what planet.osm is?

Actually, there's not a whole amount of data there at all. You're using the dev api, and looking at you can see there are only a couple of ways potentially within that bbox at all (even if the dev API didn't have a maximum bbox size the same as the live API).

I need in my Project to produce some data from OSM where I can give the Parameter of the latitude and longitude. Further I have to get the properties of the street like Bridge tunnel etc...
