A historic facility that serves as a major international airport for West Germany, Cologne Bonn Airport is one of the country’s busiest facilities and growing.

There are three main parking lots throughout the airport offering short-term, long-term and executive parking options. Car Park 1 is a two-level short-term lot located adjacent to Terminal 1 and is ideal for dropping off a family member either to the terminal or the nearby railway station. Car Park 2 is another short-term lot with slightly better rates as well as six levels of spaces to choose from, while Car Park 3 is the furthest garage from the terminal, offering six levels of budget parking for stays past 1 day.
