The parking spaces are located directly in front of the terminal entrance on the departures level. Short loading and unloading is free of charge. Please note, however, that parking here is also subject to a charge.

You can find more information on the page Drop-off and pick-up.

Passengers with disabilities can park free of charge in the designated spaces in car parks P1 and P2. You must display a disabled badge with the code "aG" (severely disabled), "Bl" (blind), "H" (helpless) or "B" (constant assistance required).

Important: The free car park exit ticket will be issued at the information desk on the day of your return flight. You will need to show your flight ticket. Please be aware that we cannot reimburse you at a later date.
For this reason, online booking of the parking space is unfortunately not possible.

Please note that the multi-storey car parks (P1, P2 and P5) have a maximum head clearance of 2 metres. There are no maximum head clearances for the outdoor car parks P3 and P6.

In car park P1 (arrivals level/level 0) there is a parking space for electric cars with a charging point provided by innogy/RWE eMOBILITY. When you use the RWE charging point, you have to pay the normal airport parking charges.

Note: the charging columns are currently not in operation. The responsible operator is working on it.

There are parking spaces for women on all levels of underground car park P1 (levels 0 to -2) next to the entrances to the terminal.

There are car park payment machines in the terminal (arrivals level/level 0), in car park P2 and at the stops for the car park shuttle bus. As you only have around 15 minutes to leave the car park after paying, we recommend using the payment machines in the car park where your car is parked.

The following types of payment are accepted:
Coins and notes, EC cards, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express). The car parks are open for 24 hours a day.
