There are many free parking spaces behind the FZW as well as on the nearby streets Ritterstraße and Übergönne. Part of the car park on Unionstr. belongs to the Westcenter and is subject to a charge. Please take note of the corresponding information.
Our own FZW parking spaces can be used on the days of the respective event from Monday to Friday from 7 pm and all day at the weekend. Vehicles parked illegally during the day will be towed away for a fee, as those parking spaces are rented out during the day.

The FZW is easy to reach by bike. Bicycle lockers are located directly in front of the main entrance and in front of the vocational college on the other side of the street.

Don’t Drink And Drive!

Even the most beautiful evening comes to an end. Please be sensible and leave your vehicles (also bikes & e-scooters) if you have been drinking. There are usually several taxis waiting outside the FZW to take you home safely and comfortably. If there is no taxi available, we will be happy to call one for you at the box office.
