The 15-minute parking tickets may not be combined with other parking tickets.

If you use multiple parking tickets at once, enter the same starting time on each.

Guests with disabilities need a parking permit in order to enjoy unlimited parking in disabled parking spaces and in Vienna’s short-stay parking zones. The permit must be placed in a visible location behind the windscreen. The presentation of a parking permit requires the possession of a disabled pass with the supplemental entry “Unreasonableness of the use of public transport due to permanently restricted mobility as a result of a disability”.

If your hotel does not have parking facilities, please ask at the reception for an all-day parking permit.

You can park you car very inexpensively at Vienna's Park & Ride Garages for about 3,40 euros per day. All Park & Ride facilities are directly connected to a subway line, making it easy and convenient to reach the city center.

Garages in the city center and nearby are also available with higher rates.
