... in Amsterdam is a stressful and unpleasant experience. Not only can it be difficult to find a parking space, paying at the meter can bring its own set of problems. It's not a matter of coins and withdrawing a parking ticket anymore. At the new meters the licence plate has to be entered.
If you anyhow have to park your car somewhere in Amsterdam, use one of the P+R locations to save on high parking fees. You can save over €200 for 4 days of parking.
