Parking in Arnhem

In this blog, you’ll find all you need to know about parking in Arnhem, where it is for free and where it is most expensive. At some places parking at night is free or only costs 50ct per hour.
You can also read about how to get a parking permit and how much a parking ticket sets you back.

Free parking in Arnhem

There are not many places in the city center where there is free parking in Arnhem -not during the day at least. Most parking spots are paid or reserved for people who live in the neighborhood. You have to pay good attention to the signs to see where you are allowed to park. 

On Sunday morning and at night you can park for free almost everywhere. You can easily find out when and where there is free parking in Arnhem when you take a look at this website. This is also where I found the content for this blog.
The colors on the map will shop you what it costs to park somewhere. Green being for free, yellow: it is not expensive to park and orange and red indicates that it is expensive to park there.

Next to the Sonsbeek Park, along the Apeldoornseweg is always free parking. On a nice day it can be hard to find a free spot, so keep this in mind.

Parking at Rijnstate Hospital

Parking at Rijnstate Hospital is sort of cheap. It costs €1,50 per hour. A whole day costs €6 euro and a week tickets costs €18. So when you plan to spend a day in Arnhem, or longer this might be a good option for you. A bus ticket into town costs €1,50 and being that the parking per hour in Arnhem Center can get up to €3,33 per hour. So taking a short bus ride is a money saver!

Paid parking, not so expensive.

The yellow color on the map indicates that the parking at these locations is not too expensive. Between 09:00 am and 11:00 pm you will pay €1,75 per hour. This is mostly the case near the Rhine at the Lombok area and in the Spijkerkwartier and Sint Marten area. These parking spots are all located outside, on the side of the road.

Parking in Arnhem, a bit more expensive.

The orange color on the map shows you where it is more expensive to park your car in Arnhem. There are mostly parking lots and parking garages. The locations that are shown in the pictures below that have a light orange color are less expensive than the dark orange ones.

Paring at night at one of the parking garages does not have to be expensive. The hourly rate drops after 6pm to only 50ct per hour. That’s not bad, right?

More expensive parking spot in Arnhem

When you don’t mind spending a little extra, you can park your car at one of these parking garages. They are located right at the city center so the location is perfect!

The red area shows you where it is expensive to park along the roadside. Again, make sure you park at the right spot. A parking ticket costs €60 euro (up to €360!). This could be when you park at a spot that is meant for people who live in the area and have a parking permit.

Parking at the Broerenstaat is most expensive

The most expensive place to park in Arnhem is at the Broerenstraat parking garage. It will set you back €3,33 per hour! You can drive in and out 24/7 and that is not always the case at the other parking garages. Before you enter a parking garage, make sure it is still open when you want to leave. You can always find a sign with the opening hours at the entrance of the parking garage.

**Parking permits**

When you live in or near the center of Arnhem you might need a parking permit. There are two kinds you can apply for:
-A permit for occupants.
-A permit for visitors of occupants.

Parking permits for occupant

Applying for an occupants parking permit needs to be done online. Can you check one of these boxes, then you can apply for one:

-The registration certificate of the car is in your name. You have a lease car, and you can demonstrate this with the lease contract or a statement from your employer.
-You have no on-site parking.
-An independent house is provided one parking permit, even though there are several persons registered at the same address.

A change of address can also pass through There will then be reassessed whether you satisfy the conditions for obtaining the license.

Waiting list

In some neighborhoods, there is a waiting list. That is because of the limited number of parking spaces. It may be that you have a parking right but you do not get awarded the license because there is no place. There is (unfortunately) nothing to do but wait until a spot opens up.

Parking permits for visitors of an occupant

Applying for visitors to occupants parking permit also needs to be done online.
