Many Munich residents should be happy about that: Resident parking permits will probably only cost 30 euros a year this year. The Free State does not want to change the regulations.
Munich – The fees for that guest parking in Munich will probably remain unchanged this year. Upon inquiry from our editorial team, the Ministry of the Interior announced that there are currently no efforts to allow municipalities to set the parking fee schedule. The reason is the “current burden on citizens of general price increases, high energy prices and persistently high inflation.”
Resident parking in Munich: the Ministry of the Interior should issue a regulation, but it does not
The Free State would have to allow by ordinance that municipalities such as Munich can themselves set the amount of parking fees for residents. So far the Bavarian-wide rules have applied, according to which a permit for the 62 licensed parking areas in Munich costs 30 euros per year.
This fee is often considered too low, not just because public space is at a premium in Munich. Underground parking spaces are also often much more expensive, so there is often little motivation to try to find a parking space in an underground car park.
City Day and a study assume a tenfold increase
Some time ago, the City Council proposed to increase parking fees by between 200 and 300 euros. A study commissioned by the Munich transport association, the transport company and the city came to a similar conclusion.
Just a few months ago, the Greens and the SPD had dramatically increased the cost of parking permits for artisans. Initially from 265 to 720 euros, but then the politicians had to make adjustments. Because very few artisans had applied for an ID card, the city lowered the fees to 360 euros.
