Arriving by car?

There are several parking options.

  • You can use the WATT Factory car park for free. When you’re facing the building, the driveway to the right leads to the car park behind the building. Parking here happens on a first come, first serve basis: if you’re early, you’ll find a spot. You can also double park: if your car blocks someone else’s, just leave a note with your phone number on your dashboard so that the other person can call you if they want to leave.
  • On the opposite side of the road, there’s another spacious car park. For a modest fee of 3 euros, you can park here all day.
  • If the WATT Factory parking and the parking opposite are full, you can also park alongside the road, of course. This also costs 3 euros for a full day.
