Parking in Antwerp

Antwerp is a vibrant city with a large number of residents and visitors. All these people require a lot of parking space for their cars. In some areas you can park for free but throughout the city parking is charged.

Free parking

- on the Scheldt quays: Sint-MichielskaaiCockerillkaai and De Gerlachekaai 
- on the Gedempte Zuiderdokken: Waalsekaai and Vlaamsekaai
- Parking Pidpa: Desguinlei

Public car parks

As a visitor, it is best to opt for a public car park or a Park and Ride (P+R) whenever possible. That is usually cheaper and easier than parking on the street and relieves you from parking stress.

Parking for campers

Visiting Antwerp with a camper? Then you can park on the streets where you see a blue sign with nothing but a white P on it (an E9a sign). You are not allowed to camp or spend the night on public property. But you can do that at one of our campgrounds:
