Parking

Today's theme of the City Daily Photo Bloggers is "Parking" - please stop by at the other CDP blogs to see what they posted for this theme.

Parking downtown Wiesbaden is not very easy if you don't want to pay for it. There are just a few no charge parking spots that are usually taken, then there is residential parking and of course spots with a parking ticket automat (in designated areas on the streets or in a garage). From my experience, prices can vary between from 50 Cents per hour to 1 Euro per half an hour, always depending on the time of the day.

A lot of residents have rented a parking spot so they don't have to deal with parking issues. This photo has been taken in a residential parking garage. Prices for this kind of parking spots can vary between 45 up to 80 Euros per month (sometimes even more if the spot is used by a company).

Good post.

So the car and the motorbike belong to the same person? Some people here buy parking spaces as investments. The denser the city, the more money to be made from it.

The only problem with parking here is absence of the rules.

Parking spaces seem to be a problem in so many places. Hopefully this person is allowed to park the bike with the car - it would be a shame and waste to use a second stall since they seem so few and unavailable.

I remember parking in such a tight space underground in Bonn. Only good drivers and small cars could make the twists and turns.
