Open-air parking lots near the Bern Central train station

Hello,

In Bern maps and satellite view I see several open-air parking lots near the Bern Central train station (for example, near the Bollwerk bus stop), but I could not find information about them in the web.

Are they open for tourists?

Is the parking time limited and for which time?

Are they cheaper than the parking garage for the some hours / entire day parking?

Thank you.

Parking in the center of big cities especially in Switzerland is tight and restricted. Best would be to not drive into the city at all. Not sure about that particular places but don't expect them to be cheap.

The parking time limit at the Bollwerk parking space is limited to three hours. Probably the longest time frame you can find in a larger Swiss city (except for parking houses).

Consider this as well: http://wikitravel.org/en/Switzerland#By_car_2

And you are aware that your car from the French side will eventually not have a Vignette for the Swiss motorways!?
