About parking in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is an enterprising and attractive city, a city that embraces initiative and innovation. Rotterdam is constantly evolving. In the city centre we create space for greenery and recreation, for homes and offices and for cycling and sustainable transport. So, it is important to keep on-street parking to a minimum. Our municipal car parks at key locations in the city centre make for the perfect alternative – and cost less, too.

OUR 8 Smart BASIC PRINCIPLES

This is what we want to achieve for you:

1. AN APPEALING PLACE TO LIVE: Rotterdam strives to be a city that offers a good quality of life. Thanks to P+R sites and municipal car parks there are fewer vehicles on the street. Be smart, park your vehicle in the city’s outskirts or underground!

2. CHEAP PARKING: It has to be easy to park, as well as cheap. This is why we offer attractive €2 parking fees.

3. ARRIVE QUICKLY AT YOUR DESTINATION: You are always close to your destination thanks to our central locations, which are always near public transport.

4. SAFE: Our municipal car parks are spacious, reliable and well lit. There are also plenty of disabled parking spaces and charging points for electric vehicles.

5. INNOVATION: Every parking initiative builds on our knowledge in this area. We are continuously looking for smart innovative ideas and striving to increase user convenience.

6. ONE-STOP SHOP FOR INFORMATION: To save you the effort of looking it up, you can find everything you need to know about navigating and parking in Rotterdam on Parkereninrotterdam.nl.

7. GROWING BUSINESS: We want to make and keep the city accessible for entrepreneurs and businesses. For entrepreneurs there is Business parking in Rotterdam.

8. RESIDENT CONVENIENCE: We aim to provide an optimal service for all residents and visitors to Rotterdam that park in the city on a daily basis.
