This is Stockholm

Modernity meets tranquility. Trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs next to idyllic archipelago. Welcome to a city where it is easy to breathe – and to feel your pulse.

By car

If you come by car or rent a car in Stockholm you may park at Park-and-Ride facilities, in parking garages or on designated street parking. If your car is registered in Sweden you are obliged to pay a congestion charge in the Stockholm inner city.

It's easy to rent a car in Stockholm. Most major international car rental companies have offices and rental locations at all of Stockholm's airports. It's possible to book ahead of time or at the airport. To rent a car you will need a national driving license and a valid passport. Stockholm's inner city has road tolls for Swedish-registered vehicles, so be sure to ask if tolls are included in the price.

Park-and-Ride
Just outside the inner city are more than 20 Park-and-Ride facilities close to public transport connections. Leaving your car at one of these will contribute to a better environment; it's cheaper and often a lot simpler than trying to find parking in the inner city. 

To take advantage of the low day price, you must park at a Park-and-Ride between 05:00 and 09:00. You'll find a Park-and-Ride map to the right (in Swedish only). Click on each address in the list to get a detailed map of the areas.

Parking in town
There are plenty of parking garages in the inner city, especially in Norrmalm. Some parking garages charge for the time you have parked as you are leaving. The price is often between SEK 60 and 70 per hour weekdays.

If you park in designated street parking, pay attention to the signs. Most places where you are allowed to park on the street have signs at the entrance to each neighborhood. Street parking meters charge by the hour; most take VISA and MasterCard.

Congestion charge
There is a congestion charge on weekdays between 06:30-18:29. Road toll cameras register all vehicles and an invoice is sent to the vehicle owner at the end of the month. Each trip in or out from Stockholm's inner city costs SEK 11, 15, 25 or 35, depending on the time of day. The maximum amount per day per vehicle is SEK 105. More information on congestion charge.
