Parking Rules

Where can I park in Cologne?

We work closely with the local government in Cologne so you can enjoy the privilege of free legal street parking all around the SHARE NOW Home Area in Cologne. A rule of thumb when you look for parking is to ask yourself: Would I leave my own car here?

You can park almost anywhere. But where can you stopover or end a trip?
