Frequently Asked Questions
If you are travelling to Terschelling or Vlieland soon, it is best to park your car in the long-term car parks P1/P2/P3 (also known as 'Tsjerk Hides') on Harlingerstraatweg.

Pre-booking is recommended for island parking. Please book online so that you are assured of a parking space for your car.

Don't worry, there is always plenty of parking. Have you decided to stay a little longer on the islands or in Harlingen? Simply pay the difference when you leave. Book your parking space online here.
