Why do I need a parking sticker for on-street parking?

In some cities it is necessary to place a parking sticker or note clearly visible behind your vehicle’s windshield. In these cities only cars with a parking sticker/note will be checked for a valid parking session. Is no sticker or note placed, you may receive a parking fine despite of having an active parking session.

Therefore, please make sure your parking sticker is clearly visible. In most cities it is accepted to place a note with “PARK NOW Handyparken” visible behind your windscreen.

You can find a full overview of cities which require a parking sticker and which cities do not accept a handwritten note here.
