Most of German cities offer different types of parking lots, in-street parking and off-street parking spaces (Parkplatz), above-ground parking lots (Parkhaus), and underground parking lots (Tiefgarage). The parking fees in Germany seem to be high, but in comparison with other European countries, the prices are rather modest.
