Where To Park in St Moritz (The Best Options)

St Moritz

St. Moritz is a busy town due to its location and the number of big events they hold during the year.

Many people arrive with the Glacier Express, but you might be coming own vehicle through the beautiful Alpine valleys.

So, given that finding a parking spot is never easy, where should you park in St Moritz?

St. Moritz actually has quite an abundance of car parks, so you should be able to find a good spot close to where you want to go or stay.

Below I have listed the bigger car parks, however, there are lots of smaller car parks distributed over the different parts of town.

Don’t forget to ask the staff at your accommodation, if they have a dedicated car park or even a discount on certain car parks. It sure is worth a try!

Just for your information:

  • Most car parks have electronic signs, telling you how many free spaces there are left.
    • If it‘s full – the sign says “Besetzt“
    • If it’s not full – it will be either “Frei” or have a number on it
  • Credit Cards: Most car parks accept credit cards (American Express is less accepted)
  • Blue Zones: You can‘t park in blue zones unless you have a special permit given by the local council (this is mostly for local citizens. Sometimes the owner of your accommodation might provide you with a special permit)
  • White Zones: You can park in any parking area with white lines, as long as you pay at the machine, usually located close to the parking area. Or it could be that you have to put the blue parking card in front of your window. If this is the case, there will be a sign. If you are using the blue card, your parking time is usually limited to 1hr.

Free parking is almost non-existent in Switzerland. Unfortunately, you can’t just park on the road like in many other European countries. The chance is pretty big you will get a big fine or a local might be knocking on your window as soon as you’ve parked your car and will tell you to park somewhere else. So in order not to spoil your holiday and save you the hassle and the money, have a look at the car parks below.
