Parking tickets in Vienna

Parking hours in certain areas are strictly limited. Depending on the time for which you want to leave the car, you must purchase the appropriate parking ticket.

Parking tickets in Vienna are divided into several types depending on the duration of parking. For the convenience of users, parking tickets have a different color.


Parking rates:

Pink Voucher - Free (Can be obtained at any Hotel or Tobacco Shop) Red Ticket - 1.05 Euro Blue Ticket - 2.10 Euro Green Talon - 3.15 Euro Yellow Ticket - 4.20 Euro

Please note that a parking ticket is required from the first minute of parking, even for short stops, for example, to unload luggage.

For these purposes, there are free 15-minute Tickets (can not be combined with other types of parking tickets)

As of 1 September 2013, the free parking time in Vienna has been increased from 10 to 15 minutes. Despite this, you may come across a parking ticket, which states that its validity is only 10 minutes. Don't worry, in Vienna it will be valid for 15 minutes.

If you use several parking tickets at once, then the same arrival time must be indicated on each of them.

What does a parking ticket look like?

The parking ticket is a thick sheet of paper approximately 8x17 cm in size. It has 4 vertical fields for marks and one more field at the bottom for entering the current year.


  1. In the first vertical field it is necessary to mark the month (Monat).
  2. The second vertical field marks the day (Tag).
  3. In the third vertical field it is necessary to mark the hour (Stunde).
  4. In the fourth vertical field it is necessary to mark the 15-minute period from which the parking duration (Min) will be counted.
  5. In the last fifth field, the current year (Jahr) is entered manually.

This parking ticket shows the following parking times: April 22, 2017 from 15.30 to 17.30

The free parking ticket is slightly different from the paid ones. It only needs to fill in two fields.


  1. The Stunde field indicates the hour of arrival.
  2. The Minute field indicates the exact minute of arrival.
