Visitors will only find paid parking spaces and multi-storey car parks in Jena's city centre.
A limited number of parking spaces for coaches are available in Bibliotheksweg (Planetarium). Buses can park free of charge in the newly created bus parking lot Wiesenstraße / branch Löbstedter Straße (north of Schillerpassage).
Resident parking is a form of parking space management to offer residents better parking options in areas with considerable general parking pressure. The legal basis is the Road Traffic Act § 45 (1b) and the associated General Administrative Regulation.
It only makes sense to arrange resident parking where the simultaneous demand from different uses (e.g. retail, commercial, large service, sports or leisure facilities) exceeds the available parking space supply.
Areas with only resident demand and too few parking spaces are not suitable for resident parking. Here, all residents willing to park would be entitled to a resident parking permit but would have virtually no benefit.

The resident parking permit, which must be applied for from the Citizen Services team, entitles the holder to park within the relevant parking zone. However, it does not guarantee a free parking space.
It is possible to signpost residents-only parking spaces (segregated system) or to allow the free use of metered parking spaces (mixed system).
A resident parking permit can be applied for
- who has his main residence in the corresponding resident parking zone and
- can prove that they do not have a private parking space and
- is registered as the keeper of a motor vehicle or can prove to have a vehicle for permanent use.
The parking permit is subject to a fee and is valid for one year.

Electric and hybrid vehicles marked with an "E" on the number plate can park free of charge in the public car parks.
