    • Fees are applicable Monday to Saturday between 9am and 10pm.
    • You may park your car on the street for a maximum of 2 hours.
    • In the district of Stadthallen, you must also pay a fee from 6pm to 11pm, except in the months of July and August.
    • Vouchers for short-term parking (or Parkscheins) can be purchased from newsagents (Trafiken), offices of the Vienna Public Transport Systems, at many petrol stations, and major railway stations.

    Commercial car parks (called Parkhaus or Parkgarage) are available throughout Vienna, but these can be pricey. A much cheaper and often more convenient alternative is the Park and Ride, which is available at a number of underground stations in the area surrounding the city proper. The weekly rates come with a discount if you add a ticket for the underground and tram.
