Tips for parking in Innsbruck

Park & Ride

There are two Park & Ride services in the city of Innsbruck:

Short-term parking zones & parking streets

In the city's short-term parking zones, parking time is limited to 90 or 180 minutes. Without a time limit, you can park for a fee either in the public underground garages or in parking streets. The city map shows you exactly in which street which zone applies with which costs and maximum parking durations.

Short-term parking zones:

  • In the paid short-term parking zones of the city of Innsbruck, you may park for 90 or 180 minutes, depending on the zone.
  • In the 90-minute short parking zones, the fee applies from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m..
  • The 180-minute short-stay parking zones are metered Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • The zones are marked in blue. From this you can conclude that there is a time limit or maximum parking duration for parking. Basically, however, the markings alone do not say anything about a possible obligation to pay fees, this can be seen solely from the signage.
  • Parking streets:
    • In parking streets you can park for a fee without a time limit.
    • Parking lanes are marked with a "P" in a green circle and a green line. When the "P" is crossed, you are in a parking street, also called a green zone. The "P" serves - in addition to the signage - to make a parking street regulation easier to recognize.
    • In parking streets, fees are payable Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    • In the park roads near the following local recreation areas, fees must be paid seven days a week:
      • Ambras Castle
      • Hungerburg
      • Kranebitten parking lot
      • Hawaii parking lot
      • in summer: Zone N (Tivoli outdoor swimming pool)
  • Zones for residents:
    • There can be parking lanes everywhere, where only residents with the resident parking card are allowed to park.
    • Residents' parking lanes are mainly found in short-stay parking zones.
    • They are marked with stop and no parking signs with additional signs such as "except vehicles with zone 'Y' parking cards".

The city map shows you exactly in which street which zone with which costs and maximum parking durations apply. In addition, this information is also available on the parking ticket machines on site. You can also find the locations of the parking ticket machines on the city map.

What does the ground marking say about the parking zone?

In Innsbruck there are blue, blue dashed, white, white dashed and green marked parking spaces on public property in the street space.

Basically, all markings for stationary traffic (i.e. parked vehicles) are white and interrupted. Only in the case of temporary parking, these markings are blue. The marking, whether white, blue, solid or dashed, says nothing about a possible obligation to pay or whether these parking spaces are reserved for residents, for loading or similar. This can only be seen from the signage.

Basically, markings on the ground do not say anything about a possible obligation to pay or residents parking lanes, this is solely from the signage.

How can I pay the parking fee?

You can pay the parking fee with coins at the parking ticket machines on site or conveniently via mobile app.

Parking ticket machines

On the parking ticket machines you will find information about which zone applies with which costs and maximum parking durations. Currently, payment is only possible with coins.

Parking permit for people with disabilities

The parking permit (according to § 29b StVO) is issued by the Social Ministry Service.

Prerequisite is the disabled person's pass with the additional entry: "Unreasonable use of public transport due to permanent mobility restriction due to a disability".

With the pass according to § 29b StVO it is allowed to get in or out of the car and to load and unload the necessary aids for people with disabilities, e.g. a wheelchair,

  • on road sections where stopping and parking is prohibited by traffic signs, as well as
  • in the second lane


  • in places where parking is prohibited by traffic signs or road markings,
  • in a short-term parking zone without time restrictions,
  • in a pedestrian zone, during the time when a loading activity may be carried out,
  • in parking spaces for disabled persons

The prerequisite is that you display the ID card in the motor vehicle behind the windshield in a clearly recognizable manner when parking and that you can show it when you stop.

With a parking permit for people with disabilities, you are not allowed to park everywhere without restrictions. For example, parking in loading zones, in fire zones or in entrances and exits is prohibited even with this parking permit.
