Parking

Wilhelma Multi-Storey Car Park

  • The car park at Wilhelma is directly on the B 10 (Bundesstrasse/main road between Esslingen and Vaihingen/Enz). It is directly adjacent to the Main Entrance on Neckartalstrasse road.
  • The car park opens at 7.30 a.m.
  • The closing time depends on the time of year and the Wilhelma opening times.
  • In summer the car park must be left by 9 p.m. at the latest and in winter by 5  p.m. at the latest.

The exact time of closure can be seen on a sign at the entrance to the car park.

  • A parking-guide system shows whether the car park is full or not. If it says "belegt" ("full"), car drivers can use the Mahle car park or one of the other possibilities close by.
  • The car park has over 800 parking bays; 8 of these - on Parkdeck/Level 3 (ground level) – are reserved for users of wheel chairs and for handicapped persons.
  • Vehicles of up to 2 metres height can use Wilhelma Parkhaus/car park.
  • For special events – in Wilhelma Park, for instance – the car park can also be hired and may then stay open longer. Information on this can be had from the Administration Office.
