Antwerp is a low emission zone!
The most polluting cars are not welcome in the city (roughly speaking diesel cars built before 2005 and gasoline cars built before 1992). Check whether your vehicle is allowed to enter the city. The city does not have a database with the data of foreign vehicles. That’s why you always have to register your car, and no later than 24 hours after entering the low emission zone. If you have to pay for admission, you must apply for your permit no later than one day before you enter the low emission zone.
Parking in Antwerp
Parking your car in Antwerp can be expensive. Parking spaces are limited and you’ll have to pay to park in most of the streets. Avoid visiting Antwerp by car.
However, in case you do, the following options are available:
Park at one of the park and ride parkings close to the city centre. Leave your car for free and without time limit.
An alternative closer to ITM could be the parking places along the river (Sint-Michielskaai, Cockerillkaai) and at the 'Gedempte Zuiderdokken' (Waalse Kaai, Vlaamse Kaai). Depending on weather conditions and events, these places are not always available.
