Frauenparkplatz: parking spots reserved for women

In some parking lots, one might see parking spots with a sign marked with the symbol for women. These are parking spots reserved for women. They are closer to the entrance of the building or are near the security booth. They are meant as a safer parking option for women, especially in parking garages. They are also for women with children so they don't have to schlep them so far.

In Kaiserslautern, I have seen them at the Pfalz Center, which is the shopping center on the east side of town.


  1. ...this is what everybody thinks.
    In reality it's to protect others from female parking skills ;)

  2. I won't lie: in the parking spot I saw, the pillar next to the spot was scraped up!
