Our History

Our History

Sixty years ago, we built our first multi-level car park in the heart of Brussels

Since then, Interparking has become one of Europe’s major players in urban mobility. We bring you a range of innovative products and services aimed at improving transit in and around major European cities. We focus on three main strategies: continual improvement of the quality of our services; innovative mobility solutions to current urban challenges; environmentally-friendly policies. We’ve expanded this vision beyond Belgium’s borders and today our initiatives can be found in eight other European countries: Holland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Poland and Romania.
