Possible Parking in Zurich
White parking places, blue parking places, park-houses and parking permission – Zurich's parking rules are very restrictive, so to avoid being fined it's important to stick to the rules.
Parking regulations in Zurich are very strict. Whoever doesn't stick to the rules can expect a parking fine of CHF 40 or more. Parking is generally permitted only on marked parking places.
We recommend parking in one of the 10 park-houses in Zurich City. Signalization boards at traffic hubs show the number of vacant parking places and the way to the park-houses. Alternatively there are parking places with parking meters for short stays (white zone). These are limited from 30 minutes to 2 – 4 hours (with exceptions).
Parking cards for inhabitants and parking in blue zones, as well as special parking permissions are obtainable at www.parkkarten.ch. Parking times are generally coordinated with business opening hours and displayed on the parking meter.
Practically everywhere parking between 9.00pm evenings and 8.00am in the morning is free of charge.
