Using a car in Luxembourg? Then you’ll need to know the rules on parking in the capital!
If you are trying to park on the street in Luxembourg City, there are a number of different zones you need to be aware of.
In violet zones, you can park for a maximum of 10 hours at a cost of €0.50/h.
In green zones, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, you can park for up to five hours at a cost of €2/h for the first three hours and €1.50/h after that. If you have a residential permit (more on those later), however, you will not need to pay.
In yellow zones, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, you can park for up to three to ten hours, depending on whether you are by a road or in a car park. Again, residents do not have to pay the €1/h fee.
In orange zones, you can park for up to two hours between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, at a fee of €2/h.
In white zones, you can park for only half an hour between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, but it is free.
If you are a resident of Luxembourg City, you can get a free permit, valid for one year, allowing you unrestricted parking in your designated residential zone.
If you have more than one car, you can get a second permit at a cost of €60 and a third at a cost of €120.
To get the permit, your vehicle must be registered in Luxembourg, and if you move house or sell your car, you are required to return the permit.
You can find the application form here.
You can also buy visitor permits to allow friends and family to park in your residential zone for limited time periods. The application form for the visitor permits, which cost €16, is available here.
Together with your permit, you will also receive a parking disc, which allows you to park anywhere in the city for a maximum of two hours.
Confused by all the rules?
You can also park in one of Luxembourg City’s various car parks, from Glacis to Knuedler and Monterey to Royal-Hamilius.
These can be expensive, though: if you’re looking for a cheaper option, why not stop off at one of the several Park+Ride car parks on the outskirts of the city, from where you can get the bus into town.
