Unless you got a Smart or similarly small car, I'd suggest not to try parking in the city center. > Currently, I plan to go by car (if it recovers from the major > electronics breakdown yesterday, arghhh...). The Altstadt (old city center) basically is a short-parking zone only. The so called "blue parking zones" are rather expensive, from Monday to Saturday, from 08:00 to 19:00 (8 am to 7pm) you pay 0,50€ per 12 minutes (or 2,50€/hour), from 19:00 to 23:00 (7pm to 11pm) the fee is 0,20€ per 12 minutes (or 2€/hour) with a maximum allowed time of two hours. On Sundays and between 23:00 and 8:00 parking is free and not limited to two hours. So forget to park east of Sonnenstraße (Sonnenstraße marks the western limit of Altstadt) Same info as above from official homepage (german) http://www.muenchen.de/Rathaus/kvr/strverkehr/parken/blauezonen/113895/index.html Overviewmap of the blue-parking zones: http://www.muenchen.de/Rathaus/kvr/strverkehr/parken/blauezonen/113929/uebersicht.html So as parking in the city center is expensive, people try to park outside, thus I wouldn't expect much free lots west of Sonnenstraße either. (at least not when you'r the one looking for one, as always :-)) Furthemore there are many one-way streets in this area, making it a little harder to find your way around. So my recommendation is to park a little outside, and use park-and-ride (aka the big parking lots at various important public transport stations) and use the public transportation (which is relatively expensive, 2,50€ for a one-way ticket (2,40€ if you pay with the chip on your ATM card or when you got a "Streifenkarte" (12€ for 5 one-way trips) - parking is between 1€ and 1,50€ per day) so the 6,50€ for MVV (Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifsverbund) are still cheaper than a parking garage (as that would probably one be good for 3 or 4 hours). And the 15-20 minutes commute via MVV probably is equivalent or less compared to driving around looking for a parking lot:-)) For small groups, (i.e. two to five adults), the "Partner-Tageskarte" would be better option than individual tickes, for 9,80€ up to 5 adults can do as many trips as they want (until 6am of the next day) - a three-day ticket is also available for 22,80€ (a one-person ticket is 5,40€ for one day, or 13,30€ for three days)  if you're under 21 years old, then you pay half the price with a Streifenkarte, i.e. for 12€ you can do 10 one-way trips, but this is only possible with Streifenkarte, not with single tickets)  when using the park-and-ride parking lots, but of course when you start your trip outside of the city center you can also find free parking lots along the streets ciao Christian -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to marketing+h...@global.libreoffice.org Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/marketing/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
