Parking in Maastricht
Parking on the street is permitted in Maastricht, but against an hourly fee and only for a limited time (2 to 4 hours). If you wish to park your car for longer than that, you are better off parking in a parking garage, where your car is safe. Fees vary from €1.40 to €3.50 per hour.
Be aware that payment can usually be made by PIN or credit card, but the specific available options vary per parking meter. Failing to pay can net you a hefty fine and in some cases can even result in your car being towed, so be careful!
P+R (park and ride)
Looking for cheap parking? In that case, use one of the P+R car parks in and around the city, from which you can easily and quickly travel to the city centre by public transport. Maastricht also has a number of P+W (park and walk) car parks, which lie within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes) from the centre.
Maastricht has three P+R car parks in and around the city. From P+R Station, you can walk straight to the city centre. P+R Noord is somewhat farther from the centre, but does offer free parking. Outside the city, park at P+R Bunde and get on the train to be ferried to Maastricht Station in five minutes.
A P+W can be found by the Stadspark, at Noorderbrug bridge and at Caberweg. P+W Bonnefanten is only available as a P+W on weekends. All four of these are a ten-minute or less stroll from the city centre, and charge at most €8 per car per day.
