Park for free in Knokke

Parking in Knokke for free is not easy at all unless you know Knokke well. Streets where parking is free and with no time restriction are very limited and situated relatively far away from the center of the city.

Graaf Leon Lippensdreef is one of the streets where you can park for free and with no time limit.

Walking from there to the Lippenslaan will take you approximately 45 min.

You can also take the bus from Knokke Oosthoekplein stop (11 min walking distance from Graaf Leon Lippensdreef) and get off at Knokke Zoutelaan.

Note that busses don’t ride very frequently in Knokke.

This is not the only street that is free. If you want to explore more options, you can download the interactive map of cPark to get all info over the parking rules and parking zones.
