Prepaid parking vouchers - parking fees

Four parking vouchers

Parking fees apply to double-track motor vehicles stopped or parked in a chargeable short-term parking zone. Parking fees may be paid, amongst others, by filling in a prepaid parking voucher upon placing the motor vehicle in the parking zone. To park your car for up to ten minutes you are not required to pay parking fees. You must fill in a free-of-charge parking voucher (15 minute parking voucher).
