When driving in Vienna city centre, you will spot short-stay parking zones. To use these, run over to a Tabak Trafik kiosk and get a parking permit. You’ll can identify these kiosks by looking out for a blue circle with red lines and their opening times can vary depending on where you are.
You’ll also come across private and public parking facilities all over the city, including the Park & Ride in U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations. These tend to be reasonably priced and offer a stress-free way of getting into the centre.
