Parking in Antwerp

Antwerp is a bustling city with many residents and visitors. And all these residents and visitors also require a lot of parking spaces for cars. Paid parking applies in Antwerp. If you plan to spend a few hours in the city, it is more interesting to park at a free P+R on the outskirts of the city, or in one of the public paying car parks. 

Planning a visit to Antwerp by car?  Then choose a free P+R on the outskirts of the city, with rapid connections to the city centre. Or you can park more cheaply in the public paying car parks.

Free Park & Ride parking

There are currently 9 P+Rs in and around Antwerp where you can park your car for free and take a quick connection to the city centre by tram, bus or bicycle. Overview of P&Rs and connections to the city centre

Public paying car parks 

These car parks are generally cheaper than parking on the street. Via dynamic parking guidance, you will be guided to a car park with available spaces. Overview of paying car parks in each district.

Good preparation

Antwerp city centre and part of the Linkeroever enforce a low emission zone.  If you are planning to visit Antwerp by car, check here whether you can enter the low emission zone. You can find all information about the LEZ here.

Use the route planner to prepare your visit to Antwerp.  You get a clear overview of the different routes, combinations of transport modes, and time indications to reach your destination smoothly.  

New parkingmeters in use! Payment ahead at the parking machine on the street with bankcard (Maestro, Visa, Mastercard) for the parking time you think you need.

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:
