St. Gallen - Free Parking?

Hi everyone!

I am planning on moving to St. Gallen this summer and would like to car with me. However I read that finding free parking is really hard. Some posts and articles suggested that there are different parking zones that one can use for a couple of hours. However, I would be looking for a spot where I can park my car and use it only once a week for major travel that I will have to do (Austria, Czech Republic...) I will be transporting stuff during these trips and so a car would be much more convenient than a train.

Are there places to park your car in St. Gallen for free? Even in the suburbs, where I could take a bus from? (I doubt anyone would want to steel my car). I know that one may not need a car in St. Gallen but it would really help me a lot when traveling.

Thanks so much for all the advice and suggestions! I can't wait to join you in Switzerland!

Jan

Re: St. Gallen - Free Parking?

One more thing. I found out that one can pay 30CHF to be able to park in the Blue Zones for a month. But is that limited to the district where you live or is it any blue zone in the town. I wonder, how many of the blue zones are there actually? Would having such permit usually ensure that I could find a spot in a walking distance from where I live (not sure where that's going to be yet, I'm looking for something relatively cheap).

Thanks a lot folks!
Peace.
