Parking in Heidelberg
However, always keep to the current regulations – this is not only generally the right thing to do, it can also save you a lot of trouble and money – because in Heidelberg there is a very strict and active car park surveillance (German: Politessen & Politeure) who are happy to hand out juicy parking tickets (German: Knöllchen)!
Parking in the Old Town
You have the possibility to drive through the Old Town and hope for a free parking lot – my tip: don’t do that. It costs time, nerves and fuel. There are a few places where you can get a free parking space every now and then, even in Heidelberg’s Old Town – but is it worth the detour?
Fortunately, the city of Heidelberg has already created an online portal with an overview of all car parks – including the current occupancy! So you can check again shortly before you leave to see whether your chosen car park still has enough free parking spaces or whether you would rather take the next one and take a short walk through the beautiful Heidelberg Old Town!
