Stockholm Parkering's Operations
Stockholm Parkering is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stockholm Stadshus AB, owned by the municipal of Stockholm.
Our aim is to provide strategically located and attractive parking facilities in Stockholm to residents and visitors alike. Reducing the volume of circulating traffic on the streets helps to improve the city environment. We build, own, maintain and operate some 71 000 parking spaces situated in underground garages, parking decks and parking lots conveniently located throughout the city of Stockholm.
We are constantly working to develop new and innovative parking solutions.
We invite you to park in our facilities, whether you need parking for a couple of hours or for a longer period.

Shall you stay over the night? Pay 50 SEK more and you can park the whole night, too. The Night Parking rates apply between the hours 12:00 am and 08.00 am.
What is the difference between parking on the street and off-street parking?
All of our parking spaces are situated in off-street facilities. Simply put, off-street parking lots are everything other than parking on the street.
In off-street facilities, such as within residential areas, it is the landowner that sets the parking regulations. In order to differentiate off-street parking from street parking the landowner is obligated to post a sign at the entrance of the parking facility which clearly indicates the name and telephone number of the parking operator. If such a sign is posted you are parking in an off-street facility.
Street parking is operated and controlled by the Stockholm City Traffic Office.
Pay the proper fee in the parking machine
Most parking machines accept credit cards. Very few accept coins.
Please do not press the “boende” button on the machine. This is for residential parking only. Residential parking requires a special permit, without one you may be cited for a parking violation and have to pay a fine.
Please note that all parking fines must be paid even if you do not live in Sweden. Otherwise they will be forwarded to your home address and a late fee will be added if they are not paid within the stated time.
