Short-term parking zones are only posted at the entrance to the respective district.
Different short-term parking rules may apply in the shopping streets of Vienna and are posted separately in such places.
Residents' parking spaces: In districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12, there are parking spaces specifically reserved for local residents - these can NOT be used with a valid parking ticket (penalties apply!). These zones are designated by no stopping/no parking signs with additional panels "excluding vehicles with a parking sticker for district xx and people with disabilities (wheelchair symbol)".
In all short-term parking zones, you must have a parking ticket from the first minute of parking onward, even for short stops to unload luggage. 15-minute free parking tickets are available and can be obtained from your hotel. The 15-minute parking tickets may not be combined with other parking tickets.
Parking tickets are available from

Throughout Austria, drivers are exempted from the parking charges in short stay parking zones if they are in possession of a parking pass for disabled persons in accordance with Sec. 29b of the Road Traffic Ordinance (European parking pass). Passengers may also make use of this parking benefit.
Note: ID cards issued before 2001 will become invalid on 31 December 2015. In order to be able to continue parking, you must apply for a new ID card (Federal Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection)!
If your hotel does not have parking facilities, please ask at the reception for an all-day parking permit.
