Amsterdam Parking Garage for Dodge RAM (MAX HEADROOM)

HI Folks,

we are planning a weekend trip to amsterdam and i am now i bit confused, because i have seen that most parking garages i have checked (Stadhuis/Central P1) have a max headroom of 180cm. I am driving a Dodge RAM 1500, does anyone give me a tip, if there are any garages which have higher headroom, so my car will fit?

Best regards!!

that is not a car..it is a half-ton pick up truck. while that truck would be right at home here in texas certainly not in the NL. you could inquire with the P&R garages that lie on the outskirts of town to see if you can fit your truck in.

If I remember correctly, train service from Essen to Amsterdam is pretty good.

Driving and parking in amsterdam for any short stay is a nightmare and expensive but a dodge ram i would think is going to be completely unusable in the small streets of amsterdam.. Also with the truck being so large and wide there is a chance you may end up with bicycle handlebar shaped pinstriping down the sides... Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but i have been to amsterdam many times and would never consider driving in to the centre... Dutch public transport is about the best in europe and with good reason as locals and tourist both rely heavily on it ....

Park it in Amsterdam Arena which has 2.25m room, and you pay 8 euros per day and included is max 5 tickets by metro into the center

amsterdam.nl/parkeren-verkeer/…arena

Ask for the P&R ticket at the P&R info booth inside

Or park it in front of my house for free if you are willing to take my son for a spin into the dirt ;)

I don't know about Germany but most people who drive imported American trucks in Holland have a LPG gas system installed. In the 90s I had imported a Ford Explorer which did 15 mpg it saved a lot of money on LPG which costed 20 cents a liter in Holland back then (now about 75 cents I think)

There;s a Dodge Ram which drives around here where I live. It looks so out of place it's ridiculous. Take the train.
