Parking in Vienna with all the regulations can be a bit challenging. But with the necessary information, you can park your car very relaxed.

Short-stay parking zones in almost all of Vienna

In the whole city of Vienna, there is a short-stay parking zone and parking is charged from Monday to Friday (holidays excluded) and limited in time. The short-stay parking zone goes from 9 am to 10 pm and you are allowed to park for a maximum of 2 hours.

Other regulations apply to Viennese shopping streets and around Stadthalle.

In addition, there are also the residents' parking spaces, which are signposted separately. In some districts, there are specially reserved parking areas for residents. You are not allowed to park here and the zones are also valid on weekends and public holidays.

Short-stay parking zones are always marked at the entrance area of the respective district with a blue ground marking and corresponding signs.

To park in a short-stay parking zone, you must complete a parking ticket. If you only stay for a moment, then there is a 15-minute free parking ticket, which may not be combined with other parking tickets. For all longer times, you need parking tickets to 30 minutes, 1h, 1,5h, and 2h. But remember to pay attention to the maximum parking time. If you use several parking tickets, then you have to enter the same start time for all. Christian and I are happy to explain to you how to fill in the parking ticket correctly.

Where do you get the parking tickets?

  • tobacconists
  • petrol stations
  • Ticket offices of Wiener Linien
  • Ticket machines of Wiener Linien
  • By mobile phone - there is a separate app for download
