Extract from the parking place regulations

§ 48 Motor vehicle parking spaces, garages and bicycle parking places

(1) If facilities are erected where access or departure traffic is to be expected, motor vehicle parking spaces or garages and bicycle parking places shall be provided in sufficient number and size and in suitable quality (necessary parking spaces). Bicycle parking places must be accessible from the public traffic area at ground level, by ramps or by lifts. In the event of changes or changes of use of facilities, parking spaces and bicycle parking places must be provided in such number and size that they can accommodate the additional motor vehicles and bicycles to be expected as a result of the change. This does not apply if the creation or renewal of housing would otherwise be significantly impeded or prevented, taking into account the possibility of replacement or redemption.

Summary: Accessible at ground level in sufficient number and size. More detailed regulation by legal ordinances or by local building regulations.

Exceptions

This does not apply in the case of changes or changes of use, if otherwise the creation or renewal of housing would be significantly impeded or prevented, including taking into account the possibility of replacement or redemption See § 48

Supplement

§ 48 Motor vehicle parking spaces, garages and bicycle parking places

(2) The Ministry responsible for building shall regulate by statutory order the number of parking spaces required in accordance with Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 and details of the number, size and location of parking spaces for persons with disabilities. If the number of necessary parking spaces is determined by a development plan or by local building regulations (§ 89 Paragraph 1 No. 4), this number shall be decisive.

(8) If the municipality makes use of the authorisation in the bylaws pursuant to Sentence 2 numbers 1 to 3, it shall specify in the bylaws the location as well as the size, number and nature of the necessary parking spaces, taking into account the type and number of existing and expected vehicles of the persons who permanently use the facilities or visit them. The municipality may in individual cases, if there is no statute according to Sentence 2, numbers 1 to 3, require the construction of parking spaces with and without a preparation of the power line for charging batteries for charging electric vehicles, if this is necessary for the safety and ease of traffic. Up to one quarter of the necessary parking spaces for motor vehicles according to Sentence 2 may be replaced by the creation of bicycle parking places, in which case four bicycle parking places shall be created from one parking space.
