Driving in Frankfurt: parking and other tips

Parking in Frankfurt can be a problem, depending which part of the city you're in. When a big fair is in town, the International Automobile Exhibition and the Frankfurt Book Fair for example, it can be tricky finding parking. Better to use the park-and-ride system instead. For inner-city parking, use the city's lots which charge a reasonable €1 or €8/day.

You'll find parking for just about any price, up to €29/day. Instead, leave your Frankfurt car rental at your hotel in Frankfurt during the day, only using it to cross the city and make trips in and out of the city. Always ask before booking whether parking comes complimentary or not.
