Motorhome parking in St Moritz

4.5

Summary

Assuming the true cost to be just five Swiss Francs, then this is a good value parking spot in this most affluent of places! It’s a shame there are no signs indicating motorhomes may parked, but it seemed acceptable “on the day”. Check before you park!

Motorhome parking in St Moritz – another good example of “maybe there isn’t any!” However, when in doubt, follow the coach parking signs and investigate from there. Approaching St Moritz, you will see signs for coach parking and a coach terminal. Disregard the signs for the terminal – this is a glorified coach station!

Follow the signs to the coach park.

We approached the coach parking area with caution, noting a barrier in the down position. We drew up alongside and tried to push the button to obtain a ticket. However, the barrier raised automatically – no ticket was issued! There was a sign stating “one hour free” though. The car parking area attendant appeared and advised us that the barrier had a height sensor and thus raised automatically. He did not seem overly concerned at a motorhome heading for the coach parking area so we went forward. There was only one coach in the large parking area. The St Moritz website offers no information about parking.

Plenty of space in the coach park.

Details of this stellplatz are available in the Europe Camperstop book – well worth the money!

Motorhome parking in St Moritz – the cost

Once parked, we had a quick coffee in the ‘van, and then a wander around the town. The coach park is next to the ski lift, and given the relatively clear conditions, we decided to take the cable car ride. Once back to “ground level” we had to find a way of exiting the car park……we had got into the car park without a ticket, so how could we insert the ticket into the ticket machine and make payment. Signage suggested that the charge was 5.00 Swiss Francs but how could we pay it? The machine would not accept payment without first entering a ticket, but we had no ticket as the barrier raised automatically! Well we could n’t pay and so on departure from the coach park, the barrier lifted automatically, whilst the same attendant who was on duty previously, waved us through!

I do not know if what happened today was typical or maybe just because it was so quiet. There are numerous signs though that prohibit overnight stays in St Moritz.

In summary, we understand the parking charge for a motorhome is five Swiss Francs, but how to pay it remains a mystery.
