Cheap car parks in Rotterdam

The overview of car parks in Rotterdam below shows that the cheapest parkings are outside the city center. What's the best car park for you? That depends on your destination. If you want to visit the shops in downtown Rotterdam (HoogstraatMarket), the best deal is to park your car in the Kiphof, Oude Haven or Sint Jacobsplaats garage. Parking around Lijnbaan shopping area is most expensive and we recommend the huge Schouwburgplein or Kruisplein car park, close to Rotterdam Central Station.
