Driving in an unknown city can be a stressful experience, so rather than put yourself through this you may find it better to stop just inside the inner city at any one of the 25 park-and-ride facilities, which are situated near to public transport connections. You will get the best value for your money if you park between 5.00 am and 9.00 am because you will be able to take advantage of a low day price.
You will find lots of parking garages in Stockholm, particularly in Norrmalm. The cost of using one of these in usually between SEK 60 – 70 an hour throughout the week, and, in most instances, you can make your payment through a VISA or Mastercard.
If you are driving a car that has been registered in Sweden you will have to pay a congestion charge if you drive through Stockholm between the hours of 6.30 am and 6.29 pm. Each journey that you make in or out of the city will cost you SEK 10, 15 or 20 depending upon what time it is, but the maximum amount you can be charged will be SEK 60. If you have hired a car, these costs may be included in the hire charge – check before you hire.
