Sachbeschädigung.
Vigilantism is not an option here. I know it's tempting, I've had an idea or two in certain cases.
So, the prank has to avoid causing property damage.....I'm sure there's a way, but better put the brains into something more productive

Put up a (fake?) video camera with an appropriate sign that the site is under surveillance 24/7.
Not possible if you don't own the ground.

I'm telling you, these parking-space-problems are a pita here.
It's kind of handled as a gentleman-crime and most times to the the detriment of the owner/renter. That is as long as they're private. As soon as they are public, they got very clear, harsh and effective laws to handle them.

A half dozen eggs. PITA to get off, particularly from the windows, but no permanent damage. Or collect some doggie dudu from the street and apply liberally to the door handles. No damage.

That carries a potential health risk, so not really not 'recommended'.

What? Dog-shit is a health risk? So why don’t they make people pick it up and dispose of it safely?

Re: Someone stealing my parking place

Yes, Aden’s to be a Christian group who own the building. Nice and friendly, tend to turn the other cheek when people drive into the yard behind their building and leave their cars there to go shopping.
I understand that they will try to put up a temporary sign or something.
When I checked again, the old Artzpraxis sign is still there. To be fair, it’s rare that anybody parks in a space with a number plate on it. It’s just the spaces that are reserved, but not clearly for an individual that seem to be considered fair game.
If nothing changes, I‘ll try putting up my own sign.

*seems* to be a Christian group!
And I seem to need liposuction on my fingertip!

Write on the windows with permanent marker (comes off with fondue alcohol).
