Yes, it is possible to reserve a parking space online until 1 hour before the beginning of the reservation. The reservation can be made with or without registration.

The maximum entrance clearance height is 1.95 m. Larger vehicles can use Car Park Nord or P1.

Customers can park their motorcycle or motor scooter at the regular parking garage 2 rate in the separate security area (multi-storey car park 2, level 4, section D).

To do so, please use the new entrance, which leads from the motorway to level 4 in P2. Please do not take a regular ticket at the entrance barrier, but use the speech function. You will then be issued a ticket and the barrier will be opened manually. The staff in the multi-storey car park will then open the security area for you to park the motorcycle or motor scooter there.

After parking, you must validate your ticket at the pay station (next to the pay booth) at the regular P2 rate. Please visit the pay booth upon return. The staff will then open the security area for you. Please activate the speech function again at the exit barrier, and then the barrier will then be opened again manually.

Provided that you arrive within the booked rental period (or the valid grace periods according to your reservation confirmation), the barrier will recognise your identification medium and open.

If you stored your number plate details when making your reservation, the barrier will open automatically via number plate recognition. You can always hold the QR code that is on your reservation confirmation up to the QR code reader and open the barrier.

The QR-Code is valid independently of the deposited license plate and also opens the barrier if you want to enter with a license plate other than the one deposited.

You can use one of the means of identification stored for this reservation for entry and exit. You will find the identification media on your reservation confirmation. If you stored your number plate details, they should be recognised automatically on entry and exit and open the barrier. If you want to leave the car park more than 12 hours before the booked exit, the number plate will not be accepted at the exit for security reasons and another identification medium must be used to exit. You can always use the QR code on your reservation confirmation for identification purposes..

You can validate the ticket that was drawn by mistake using the QR code from your reservation at the pay station, which will activate your reservation

To do so, first insert the paper ticket into the machine; the regular parking rate will be displayed. Now please hold the QR code from your reservation in front of the scanner on the pay station. The ticket is validated and remains in the pay station. To exit, please use one of the identification media stored for this reservation.

No, you can drive directly to the exit and use the means of identification you used when entering. If you specified your car registration number when booking and used this as your identification on entering, the barrier will automatically open when you reach the exit. If you have entered via QR code, please also scan this at the exit barrier.

In this case, the extra parking time will be charged in accordance with the tariff notice for the respective car park. Parking is usually charged by the hour, and for longer overruns by the day. Additional charges can be paid with any credit card (MasterCard, Amex, VISA) at the exit. If you do not have a credit card, please pay the additional amount by scanning the QR code from your reservation at one of our automatic pay stations. You will receive a receipt as proof of payment.


If you leave the car park before the end of your parking time, we can unfortunately not give you any refund.

There is a call button at all entry and exit barriers which will put you through to our service staff. Our service personnel is there to answer your questions 24/7. Please describe your problem to the person from service and we will be pleased to help you.

The display “Zero free parking spaces” simply means that those who have not booked a parking space online may not drive into the car park. As a parking customer with a reservation, you can still enter using your selected means of identification. We can guarantee that there is a free parking space for you.

The booking grants you one entry and one exit to the booked car park. As soon as you exit, your booking is deemed to have been fulfilled and you cannot re-enter without pulling a ticket.

Free rebooking is possible once if the customer has registered in the online booking system, the change is made at least 12 hours in advance (before the start of the booked rental period) and there is a maximum of 24 hours between the start of the previous and the newly booked rental period.

Should the rebooking result in a more favourable rate, a refund is not possible.

If you book without registration, you cannot change or upgrade your reservation.

You can cancel your reservation up to 12 hours before the booked entry. A refund of the reservation fee is excluded.  If you do not use the reserved parking space without a cancellation, you are not entitled to a refund of the parking fee.


With the booking confirmation you receive per e-mail, you will also receive an invoice. To read the complete confirmation of reservation, you will require the Acrobat-Reader, which is available free of charge in the Internet. Please make sure you enter the correct billing address when booking, as this cannot be corrected later.
