Parking at Düsseldorf Airport: a good trip from the start

What should you do with your car? We’d say park it at one of over 20,000 parking spaces at Düsseldorf Airport! Park particularly close to the terminal in the orange TERMINAL fare zone. It’s particularly cheap in the yellow LONG-TERM fare zone and the popular LONG-TERM SAVINGS fare zone is labelled in red. Colours show you the way to the parking space of your choice, on all maps as well as on our parking guidance system. Please note our parking guidance system labels the LONG-TERM SAVINGS parking spaces in yellow (like the LONG-TERM spaces) instead of red.

Parking on the safe side: with our online reservations

Take advantage of the option of reserving a parking space at the car park of your choice at Düsseldorf Airport in advance, up to midnight on the eve of your arrival. Simply arrive and claim your parking spot – without taking a car park ticket.


Use our online reservation system to reserve any parking space at the parking garage or car park of your choice. When you reserve, we guarantee that a parking space will be kept free for you at the specified parking garage or car park at the arrival time you designate. Our internal parking guidance system will guide youquickly to the next available parking space.


Please note that only a limited number of parking spaces can be made available for reservation.


Here’s how it works:


Making your reservation is as easy as taking off. Take a look at what’s currently available by clicking on “Car parks” to see an interactive map. If you prefer to be next to the terminal, park your car in the TERMINAL fare zone (orange). Should you wish to park for a particularly low price, select a car park in the LONG TERM fare zone (yellow) or the LONG-TERM SAVINGS fare zone (red). All LONG-TERM and LONG-TERM SAVINGS car parks are connected to the terminal by SkyTrain or shuttle bus or are no more than a 15-minute walk to the terminal.


You can also start your reservation procedure right now by clicking on “Reserve car park” or going to the “Reservations” tab to select the arrival and departure times you require. Once you do that, you will be shown all the parking options available during that period. Select the car park or parking garage you require and reserve a free parking space for the length of your trip using the online form.


You will be required to pay a reservation fee of 6 euros (8 euros for spaces in the Premium Parking area of car park P3) for all parking spaces in the TERMINAL zone. Payments can be made via credit card or ec card. This fee is for providing you with the parking space up to one hour before and after your announced time of parking in the TERMINAL fare zone. You can book a parking space for the LONG-TERM and LONG-TERM SAVINGS fare zones online and conveniently pay in advance. You may enter to park in these fare zones up to four hours earlier and six hours later than your planned arrival time, even if the sign says the car park is “FULL”. After this six-hour period, your reservation will expire.


Please either use your ec card or your credit card – instead of a car park ticket – to enter and also leave the car park where your reserved space is located. Please insert your credit card or ec card into the ticket dispenser on arrival. Provided that you are arriving during the reserved time period, the machine will recognise your card and the barrier will open. You may now drive in. Please note that you will also need this card to open the exit barrier when you leave.


You no longer have to wait to pay at a pay machine, since your parking fee is automatically debited to your credit card or ec card. You will receive a receipt for the parking fee charged when you leave the car park.

Arrival and departure: driving up, stopping and short-stay parking


There is no room for you to stop or park at the curb in front of the Arrivals hall. However, the short-stay car park P12 is available directly in front of the Terminal C Arrivals hall. It’s a short walk from here to the Arrivals area. It is recommended that you do not leave your car here for more than 30 minutes. 


Drivers who would like to accompany passengers to the departure area can use the short-stay car park P11 near Terminal C Departures. It is recommended that you do not leave your car here for more than 30 minutes. 


Short-stay and same-day parking for the Terminal C area
A short walk away: we recommend that business travellers flying with airberlin and visitors coming to pick up relatives, friends and colleagues from Düsseldorf Airport park in the underground parking garage P8. There you can park (almost) in the terminal itself and the lifts will take you right to the departure or arrivals area.


Short-stay and same-day parking for the Terminal A area:
A short covered walk away: we recommend that passengers flying with Lufthansa or the Star Alliance use parking garage P7. It is connected directly to Terminal A by a covered pedestrian bridge and offers easy-to-reach, generously proportioned parking spaces that are only a 2-minute walk to the check-in area.

Height restrictions in the parking garages: the right place for your car

Passengers with disabilities receive special attention

We recommend that disabled passengers arriving with their own car park in the underground parking garage P1 directly under the terminal, or in parking garages P2 or P3.
Those with severe disabilities who possess a blue parking permit issued by the German Straßenverkehrsamt (Road Traffic Department) or a European equivalent are allowed to use the passenger parking spaces in the TERMINAL and LONG-TERM areas at Düsseldorf Airport free of charge (this does not include car parks P11 and P12). Merely possessing a disabled person’s pass does not entitle the owner to use the designated parking spaces for disabled persons. This special parking offer is only valid for the owner of the disabled parking permit, not for those who come to drop them off or pick them up. We request that those who accompany severely disabled children contact our parking service staff in advance.

When leaving our parking garage, please use the intercom at the exit to contact our staff. An employee of the parking garage operator will come to the exit to raise the exit barrier after making a note of your disabled parking permit and number plate.
