You can find additional parking options in the city’s “Green Zone”. Parking is available here without any time limit. The daily fee is 6€. On weekends (starting on Saturdays at 12pm), on holidays and on weekdays between 6pm and 8am you can park for free. The Easypark-App can be used in the entire city.

Free public parking in Leoben:

As in many other cities, free parking spots are a scarce good in Leoben. Check out the map below to see where you can find free parking (outside the marked areas). These free parking spots are usually heavily frequented. Thus, we recommend using the city-garage instead.

Charging your electric or hybrid vehicle:

You can find multiple charging stations throughout the city. The closest one to our hotel can be found in Leoben’s city garage. This garage is right underneath our hotel and the main square. The entry is right next to our hotel, in Langgasse 12. The garage offers 4 electronic vehicle charging stations with 22KW each. The elevator next to them brings you straight to our reception or your room.

Terms of us and costs:

The charging stations marked red can only be used while the car is being charged. They can only be used for charging electronic or hybrid cars.

For using the charging station you will be charged a fee. Momentarily charging your car will cost you approximately € 0,11 per minute.

The price depends on how long the charging station is being used (fee x duration in minutes = final price). The actual power consumption does not influence the final price.

The fee for using the parking space at the charging stations has to be paid at the same time as the charging station fee (“1-ticket system”). You have to pay the charging fee before leaving the garage at the pay machine.
