Parking

Roadside parking in the city and around the fair costs money. There are two different rates – ‘Taxa 2’ and ‘Taxa 3. A blue sign on the street informs which rate applies. A good way is to download the parking app ‘Stockholm Parking’. Otherwise, there are pay machines. Roadside parking is usually free in the evenings and Sundays. The information on what hours you are supposed to pay a parking fee is stated on the parking signs.

Car parks (garages) offer ‘evening parking’ at a low price. The fee is SEK 50 from 18.00 to midnight. For this you pay SEK 50 in the pay machine and the parking time you get will automatically ‘jump’ to midnight.
