Long-term parking zones:
For long-term parking, for travelers that wish to leave their car at the airport when traveling to their choice of destination, the Dresden airport has designated a separate parking zone. These have further parking garage divisions and an outdoor parking lot, to cater to all passenger’s economic feasibility.
Parkhaus long-term parking
Parkhaus, or the parking garage, long-term parking is an indoor parking lot located in front of the main airport building and takes around 2-3 minutes to reach from the terminal. For traveler’s convenience, the airport is connected to the parking garage through a covered glass bridge.
The parking garage offers three different cost-effective rates on different floors to accommodate all travelers:
Classic car park
The classic car park is the standard parking zone with no minimum parking time. The parking lot provides flexible parking at cost-effective prices. You can purchase tickets on the spot or pre-book your spot online through the website’s ticketing portal. In case you are buying a classic parking ticket online, you have to enter with the given QR code to ensure your ticket is valid. The charges start from EUR 20 for one day and go up to EUR 114 for 15+ days.
Low-cost car park
If you wish to avail of a parking spot at the low-cost parking zone, which houses one of the cheapest parking spaces in the garage, you must make an online reservation through the Dresden Airport’s website. There is no on spot facility for purchasing a ticket for this category; hence, you must purchase it timely, to avoid any problems in your long-term travel. The minimum parking time for the low-cost zone is one week, which costs around EUR 15, and goes up to 21 days at approximately EUR 50, with a small pre-booking fee of EUR 5. You will find the low-cost parking spaces marked with blue on the garage’s level 4.
Special car park
The special car park has a limited number of parking spaces, highly protected by 24/7 surveillance and round-the-clock security parole services. To purchase a special car park ticket, you must pre-book it online before arriving at the airport. The minimum parking time in this zone is set at three days, starting at EUR 28 and going up to one month at EUR 103.
P4A outdoor long-term parking
The outdoor parking zone offers the cheapest long-term parking at Dresden Airport. If you wish to park for a few weeks, at the lowest cost, P4A is the parking zone for you. It is a five-minute walk from the airport terminal and the main building built in the airport’s western block. To buy a P4A ticket, you must purchase it via an online ticketing portal, as it’s highly unlikely that you find a spot at the ticket barrier due to high traffic.
Payment at the parking zones
Every parking zone has its separate ticketing and payment booth. The machine accepts all mediums of transactions. You can make a transaction using EUR banknotes, as well as your credit and debit cards. The airport also offers a change machine for your convenience. If you face any problem with the ticketing booth, please contact the airport’s parking service center office, which is at level 0 of the multi-story car park in the long-term parking zone.

Disabled parking zone
Dresden International Airport cares about catering to all its passengers. Although there is no separate parking zone designated for the disabled passengers, the airport has assigned different parking spaces for all those with disabilities. For more convenience, the airport management assists all passengers who request for it.
For this, the airport needs to be informed before the passenger’s arrival, to either the airline or the airport service management. To make use of the disabled parking privilege, it is advised by the airport management to place your impairment certificates at your vehicle’s front window, to ensure no hassle and difficulties for both passengers and the airport security when parking.
