Under certain conditions, people with a severe disability can apply for a parking permit.

Only the blue parking facility allows the use of parking spaces with a wheelchair symbol.
This is prohibited for owners of the orange-colored parking facility, as is all other road users. The parking permit is always personal and is valid for a maximum of 5 years , but is tied to the period of validity of the severely handicapped card. If the severely disabled pass loses its validity before the parking pass expires, the parking pass will also become invalid on the same date. After the period of validity has expired, a new application must be submitted to the LBV.
