In Greifswald, there are two large public car parks underneath the Dompassage and the marketplace. At the train station, the theatre, on the Hansering and at the south museum harbour, there are also parking spaces with parking ticket machines. These parking spaces can be found by following the parking guidance system.
In addition, vehicles can be parked on the car park in front of the Mensa. Residents can obtain resident parking permits from the town council.
For visitors, we recommend leaving your car in a car park and using public transport. The town centre can also be explored on foot or with a bicycle.
If you want to travel cheaply by car and get to know new people, you can find out about rideshares (Mitfahrgelegenheiten) to and from Greifswald. The University’s bulletin board offers students the chance to place advertisements.
