Overnight parking in Luzern

Hi everybody,
I live in Luzern and my parents are coming to visit. We plan to rent a car for two weeks to use for day trips (cheaper than 4 train tickets).


We thought we could use our residency in Luzern to get a 60 CHF monthly parking permit. But the city won't issue the permit for a rental car, only to cars registered in your name.


Is there a cheap place in or nearby 6003 Luzern (I have a bike and can get around by bus) for parking? The best we can find is 25 CHF a day.


Thank you very much! Sorry for the boring question.

If you don't need it every day, and parking is an issue, have you considered using Mobility?

It's not good value for a long term thing normally, but take off the 25CHF parking and maybe only using it for half the days could make it worthwhile.

Thanks for your reply! We plan to drive on some very long trips. The last time we took a day trip with Mobility to Sonnenberg (1.5 hours by car one-way) it cost 120 CHF.

Everything is really expensive!

Re: Overnight parking in Luzern

In every city it is the Stadtpolizei that keep the law and order, and issue parking tickets. Why not ask them where to safely park? (NOT the cantonal police)

Between 4 pm and 9 am you shouldn't really have a problem parking on most quiet roads, as the blue parking disc will allow you to park for free, and the parking wardens go off duty at 4 pm but start working the streets around 9 am.
