rude staff at Parking 3

rude staff at Parking 3

I'm a tourist coming from Canada. Early this month I visited Hohenschwangau with my aunt. However, the staff at Parking 3 was extremely rude and danger. He gave me a very bad first impression of Germany.

On that day after entering parking 3, we didn't see any working staff and parked our car in a lot. When we were trying to find a machine to pay the parking, a guy suddenly appeared and rudely asked us to park our car in another lot which was far away from the exit and the original lot I parked. When I told me I would pay him after I found an available lot on the other far side he pointed, he became very aggressive and harsh. He forced me to pay now and yelled at me. When I refused, he even wanna pouched my face. Without my aunt stopping him, he already attacked me. He tried to attack me twice. This guy is very danger to work at the public parking lot.

Considering Hohenschwangau is a very tourism area, this guy he may hurt other tourists and their vehicles in the future. Also, Hohenschwangau shows the international image of German. This guy is contaminating the image of Germany. I had sent the emails to info@schwangau.de, info@ticket-center-hohenschwangau.de, and svneuschwanstein@bsv.bayern.de. But there is no response from the admin side yet at all. Anyone knows who else I can report this case?

Thanks & Regards,

I have a feeling that anyone who lets one negative encounter with one single person color his perception of an entire nation probably has more issues than can ever be addressed on a forum such as this.

Then again, I have no idea what people perceive as aggressive. I have also NEVER - in my many decades on this earth - encountered anyone who wanted to punch me in the face because I didn't want to do business with them.

But, oh gosh, the Germans better hunt this parking guy down quickly - after all, he is "contaminating the image of Germany!" I mean, WTF????

To me, this "report" stinks - and it stinks to the high heavens.
