Short-term parking - permanent parking permit ("Parkpickerl") for residents

German version

You need the following documents for an online application:

  • Vehicle registration certificate (Zulassungsschein)
  • Driving license
  • Login details for electronic payment (if applicable)

You may need further documents if you have a leased vehicle or a company-owned vehicle, or if you are a person with diplomatic status, or if you are the holder of a certificate of disability (see "Documents required").

General information

Many districts in Vienna are short-term parking zones. You can only park there for a restricted period of time and have to pay a parking fee. If you live in a district that is a short-term parking zone you can apply for a permanent parking permit for residents (parking sticker or "Parkpickerl") to park your vehicle near your place of residence without time restrictions.

Please note that there are separate short-term parking hours for shopping streets that also apply to you even if you have a parking sticker for the district. You can park your vehicle in these shopping streets for a maximum of 1.5 hours for free if you have a parking sticker for the district and if you put a properly set parking disc behind the windshield.

You can only get one parking sticker for your primary residence even if you own several vehicles. If you have a secondary residence in an allotment garden (Kleingarten) in Vienna, you can apply for a seasonal parking sticker (Saisonpickerl (German)) there too as long as your primary residence is in Vienna.

Necessary steps if your circumstances change

You may have to make some changes regarding your parking sticker if your windshield needs to be replaced, if you get a new car, if you move to another district that is a short-term parking zone, if you get a new number plate for your car, or if you no longer need your parking sticker. To find out which exact steps you have to take please see: Necessary steps if your circumstances change (Notwendige Schritte bei Änderungen) (German)

The regulations for the permanent parking permit for residents are outlined in the Austrian Road Traffic Act (Straßenverkehrsordnung 1960).

Short-term parking zones on the city map

You must

  • be the holder of the vehicle registration certificate or
  • have a leasing contract for the vehicle or
  • privately use a company-owned car.

You must be

  • the main driver of the car.

The vehicle must be

  • a multi-track vehicle and
  • your primary residence must be on the vehicle registration certificate (exception: if you privately use a company-owned car).

The vehicle can have

  • a maximum weight of 3.5 (metric) tons
  • transferable number plates (Wechselkennzeichen)

Deadlines

  • The permanent parking permit for residents (parking sticker or “Parkpickerl”) is valid for a minimum of three months and a maximum of two years.
  • If your current parking sticker is about to expire, you need to apply for a new parking sticker.

Please note:
Two months before the parking sticker expires, the Vienna City Administration sends two bank transfer forms (Zahlungsanweisungen) to all parking sticker holders whose primary residence and number plates have not changed and whose primary residence is on the vehicle registration certificate (exception: company-owned cars). You can apply for a new parking sticker simply by paying the fee via bank transfer. One of the bank transfer forms can be used for a parking sticker validity of one year, the other for a validity of two years.

Important notice:
Please note that this is a voluntary service! It could happen that you do not receive the bank transfer forms in advance to remind you of renewing your parking sticker.

In this case, you must remember to apply for a new parking sticker yourself. Please submit your application at least four weeks before your parking sticker expires.

Please note that, if you use the online form to apply for a permanent parking permit ("Parkpickerl"), about one week may pass until you receive the permit (- time needed for application assessment, money transfer, payment verification, issuing the administrative decision and sending it to you by post.) If you apply directly at your Municipal District Office ("Bezirksamt"), you receive the permit immediately provided that your application meets all requirements.

The Municipal District Office (Magistratisches Bezirksamt) of the district where you have your primary residence is responsible for all matters regarding the permanent parking permit for residents (parking sticker).
