Parking in Vienna & Hernals
Parking in Vienna with all the regulations is challenging. But with the necessary information you can park your car very relaxed.
Short-stay parking zones in almost all of Vienna
In most parts of Vienna there is a short-stay parking zone and parking is charged from Monday to Friday and limited in time. Depending on the district in which you park your car, there are different regulations. There are short-stay parking zones from 9am to 7pm and you are allowed to park for a maximum of 3 hours, other zones are from 9am to 10pm and you are only allowed to park for 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.
Very practical to best deal with all the regulations is the brochure from the Vienna Tourist Board where you can find all the information summarized. You can download it here or grab it from us.
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?

Garages, Park & Ride and more
A very good overview of where the nearest public garage is, you can find on Parken.at
A special feature among the garages are the Park & Ride facilities. These are located on the outskirts, are directly connected to public transport and the daily rate of currently EUR 3.4 is unbeatable. By the way, the next one is in Ottakring.
But there are not only public garages, but also in many homes garages for the residents. And here there are often places that are not used. At least until recently. Because now there is PAYUCA and this company now helps you to use such parking lots. Just download the app and you'll see where the nearest free parking space is.
