On the whole, it's relatively easy to park on the street or in a parking lot in Luxembourg. However, street parking is generally subject to a charge in built-up areas. There are several ways to plan and pay for parking.
Parking in Luxembourg
In Luxembourg, parking lots generally charge between €1 and €3 per hour. Rates are displayed at the car entrance or on the parking lot's website.
Once you've parked, you can stay as long as you like. You pay as you leave, according to your actual parking time. Remember to keep your ticket with you. You'll need it to re-enter the parking lot via the pedestrian entrance, pay for your parking and collect your car.
Luxembourg City parking lots
To park in Luxembourg, you can use the capital's various parking lots. But beware of parking problems, especially at lunchtime or during major events. The parking lots are often fully booked. You'll have to be patient at the entrance to the parking lots to get a space, or take public transport.

To use the Indigo Neo system, you need to download the app. Registration is free. Find out more about the IndigoNeo app on the vdl website.
Vignette for residential parking in Luxembourg
If you are a resident of Luxembourg City, you can benefit from a residential parking sticker.
Vignettes reserved for residents of Luxembourg City
The parking sticker is reserved for residents of Luxembourg's capital. It entitles them to free, unlimited parking in the area where they live.
Applications for a resident's vignette must be supported by a certificate of residence from the City of Luxembourg and a vehicle registration certificate issued in the applicant's name.
Luxembourg City residential parking vignettes are issued per person and per vehicle.
The number of parking stickers per person is now limited to a maximum of 3. The first sticker is free of charge, while subsequent stickers are subject to a progressive fee. Multiple vehicles may not be registered on the same sticker.
How the residential parking sticker works
With the residents' parking sticker, you're also entitled to 2 hours' free parking throughout Luxembourg City. To do this, you need to place the white parking disc issued with the residents' parking sticker behind your windscreen. Please note that the maximum parking time may vary from one district to another. In this case, don't forget to note your estimated time of departure!
Stickers authorizing residential parking must be placed behind the windscreen of your vehicle. They must be visible from outside the vehicle. Parking stickers come in 3 different types: annual, temporary (valid for 20 days) or visitor (valid for 3 months at a cost of 16 euros).
Professional parking sticker
Certain professional activities, such as the medical profession, home help or breakdown services, benefit from parking rights in the City of Luxembourg. Applications must be made to the administrative services.
Parking stickers for other communes
Other communes in Luxembourg offer the possibility of residential parking stickers, in specific regulated zones on their territory.
These include the towns of Esch-sur-Alzette, Pétange, Hespérange, Differdange, Strassen, Bettembourg, etc. These towns offer residential parking vignettes to residents of the municipality. They can park for free in certain districts.
Contact your local authorities for more information.
If your car is registered abroad, you can obtain a temporary sticker valid for 6 months.
EU blue zone parking disc
Some areas allow time-limited parking with a blue disc, as stipulated by the European Union's Highway Code.
Blue zones are identified by blue signs with a white P and a parking disc symbol.
The authorized parking time is generally 1h30 with the blue disc. This must be prominently displayed behind the windscreen. You must indicate your arrival time at the parking space. Blue discs are available from service stations.
