Munich today - news from June 19th, 2022

Those who live reasonably centrally in Munich can do without a car, unless they need it for professional or health reasons.

In some neighborhoods it’s really not a good idea to own a car. If you drive quickly to go shopping, you can assume that the search for a parking space will take at least as long as the journey to the supermarket and the shopping together.

Nevertheless, many Munich residents still stick to their own car. As a result, in some quarters there are significantly more parking licenses – also known as resident ID cards – than parking spaces. So many leave their vehicles lying around all the time and only use them once for weekend trips or vacation trips. Others actually put up with driving around forever in the evening in the hope of finding a free spot. Incidentally, the city cannot restrict parking licenses. If you live in a parking license area (what a nice Munich word) and have a car, you can apply for a permit.

This is not particularly helpful for the quality of stay in the streets. Should the city at some point have the legal basis to raise the previously capped price for ID cards from 30 euros to a perhaps three-digit sum, some will perhaps still get rid of their vehicles, which are usually more of a “standing vehicle”. That would be good for the cityscape (SZ Plus).
