Parking Height Restriction

I am planning to stay in Brugge at the Novotel Centrum. Unfortunately my car and roof box are just under 2.3m which means I cannot use the underground car park at Katelijnestraat. Any suggestions where I can park nearby?

Unfortunately the highest underground parking is 2m15 (in front of train station) which means you will have to park above ground.

Inside Bruges all streets are either metered parking or require a parking disc (max. 4 hours).

Behind the train station you can park on Oesterparking, an outdoor car park, for which the price is 2 euro per day: interparking.be/en/…

Keep in mind though that massive road works are being planned in that area. For the moment traffic flow is still good, but it changes constantly.

You can park for free, as long as you wish, along the outer ring road for traffic. The streets for your GPS / Google Maps: Buiten Gentpoortvest, Buiten Boninvest and Buiten Kazernevest. Often used by truckers, coaches, people with a mobile home and people who just want to park for free.

If you manage to park at Buiten Gentpoortvest it would be a good 15 minutes walking to your hotel.

Otherwise you can use the mobile home car park: http://www.interparking.com/ - (bottom of the page) Bruges - Kampeerautoterreinen 1 & 2 (Bruges)

Price is currently 22,50 euro per day.

Last option is to park on one of the free car parks surrounding the city, and take a bus into town.

But as you'll probably be approaching Bruges from the motorway I suggest you just try Oesterparking behind the train station. You'll most likely enter Bruges from that angle so try that one first. There is a tourist office inside the train station as well, so if you need directions you can always drop by (max. 15 minute car park in front of the train station). Opening hours tourist office:

Monday - Friday: 10h00 - 17h00

Saturday & Sunday: 10h00 - 14h00

Kindest regards,

Hi Sabrina, we will be staying in Grand Hotel Casselbergh Bruges in late July for one night. Do you know if this hotel has a parking for guests? I could not find any info on this. If not, is there any close by parking space? Thanks

Rubi K - from the hotel's website

Parking facilities:

Our underground car park has 40 spaces; spaces are subject to availability and can only be reserved after advance booking.


At the end of the Hoogstraat, by the restaurant Calis, turn left onto the Meestraat and you will arrive at the rear of the hotel. After 20m you will see the entrance to the underground private car park of Grand Hotel Casselbergh Bruges****.

So I would give them a call / send a message to reserve.

I am sure if they have no space they will be able to suggest nearby options.
