Parking in The Hague
Published on : 21-12-2012, 14:22 by Perfect Housing
In order to park on the majority of the streets in The Hague you will either have to pay an hourly fee or be a resident in possession of a parking permit.
On-street parking fees are high, and in general it is cheaper to park in a parking garage. In the centre, there are 20 different garages with 6,500 spots. There are 3 garages (with 4,500 spots) in Scheveningen. Both areas provide an automated parking guidance system to help you find the closest available space.
To pay for on-street parking, use one of the parking ticket dispensers that can be found at regular intervals along the sidewalk. The ticket dispensers take coins or, in some cases, a credit card or chipknip card (smart card). Payment is by the hour, with an hourly fee between €1.70 and €3.00 in 2012 depending on the part of the city. Not paying for a ticket or overstaying the time you have paid for could result in a parking ticket, which will set you back at least €54.
Residents can apply for parking permits in neighbourhoods requiring them (see links below for more information). Parking permits are currently issued very quickly with no (or limited) waiting times.
