Marburg, residents parking only (please)

No parking inside the old town!

Of course residents can park in the old town, but if you visit Marburg you should park outside. Many of the rare parking spots in the old town are marked “for residents only” (= Anwohnerparken in German) and it would be rather tricky anyhow to place a car for people who are not used to this switching back and forth. To find empty space on one of the rare public parking like at the castle (photo 4) is pure luck! Don’t waste time and energy and most probably hassle afterwards with tickets and use one of the public parking garages. There is a big one in Pilgrimstein (street), the one I mentioned with elevator to the old town. It has five floors and there is always some space. Because Pilgrimstein is a one-way street (north-south direction), drive to Elisabethkirche and then into Pilgrimstein.

There are other parking garages or bigger parking lots, but this is the best for a day visit. In case you have booked a hotel, ask the hotel staff where you can park the car when you make a reservation. In case the hotel has a website, they will mention parking possibilities.
