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 Vienna, there is a short-stay parking zone, and parking is charged from Monday to Friday (holidays excluded) and is limited in time. The short-stay parking zone goes from 9 am to 10 pm, and you can 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; 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.

You must complete a parking ticket to park in a short-stay parking zone. Christian and I are happy to explain how to fill the parking ticket correctly. If you only stay for a moment, 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 for 30 minutes, one h, 1,5h, and two h. But remember to pay attention to the maximum parking time. If you use several parking tickets, you have to enter the same start time.

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
