In the map above, use the + button in the bottom left corner to zoom in. Click on the button a few times and you will see a blue line around the area that is defined as the town center. Parking inside this area is free, but you must register your arrival time either on a paper note, or by using a parking disc or mobile phone app (see further information below).
In some car parks outside the town center, you will have to pay for parking. Look at signs locally to see what applies in that exact area.

Note in window, parking disc or app
To park for free in the car parks/spaces in the town center, you must either write a note and place it visibly behind your front window, use a parking disc* or a parking app** on your mobile phone to register your arrival time. Write/register the time and date you parked your vehicle (for example 10:30, July 8), and thereafter you may remain parked for the maximum allowed time in that exact parking space. Look at the nearest sign locally for information on the maximum allowed time to remain parked.
* You can buy a parking disc in some shops and hairdressers in the town center, and on the ground floor of Rauma town hall, in the middle of Åndalsnes. Or you can just write the date and arrival time on any piece of paper you may have yourself.

For other municipal car parks outside the town center itself, the scheme will apply from June 15 to August 25.

Have you received a penalty ticket?
If you have not parked your vehicle according to the rules stated above, you may find that you have a received a penalty ticket (on a strip of yellow paper).
If you have received a penalty ticket and would like to contest it, you may write your complain on e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a good idea to describe the incident as well as you can, and also to attach images to document the incident if you can. It is also possible to hand in your written complaint physically at town hall, on the ground floor.
A penalty ticket cannot be paid at town hall, but you may visit a local bank or pay the penalty ticket through your own bank (if abroad, you will need the IBAN and Swift number from your bank).
