Environmental zone

Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter the environmental zone, each vehicle concerned requires a valid Austrian environmental sticker (Umwelt-Pickerl). Otherwise, a fine of up to 2180 euros is to be expected.

The low emission zones are marked with two types of sticker. On the one hand, there is the mostly digital sign for speed restriction, which is usually seen on motorways. On the other hand, there is the sign for immission control - air. This shows a black circle similar to the prohibition sign with the remark IG-L. Who exactly is allowed to enter or not, is not visible from the entry sign.


In our Green-Zones App we have a detailed map of each low emission zone. So you can easily recognize the borders and avoid penalties.

Austria has a total of 8 different environmental zones. These are divided into normal environmental zones and noise protection zones: Außerfern, Burgenland, Linz, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Styria, Tyrol, Vienna.


In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.

Good to know...

Temporary Low Emission Zones in France explained

In France there are both permanent and temporary environmental zones. The temporary zones are only activated when pollution levels are particularly high. They are called air protection zones (Zones de Protection de L'Air = ZPA). As with permanent zones, you have to stick the appropriate sticker on your windscreen for temporary zones. When temporary zones are activated, the rules of "differentiated traffic" come into force, in French "circulation différenciée".

6 billion euros for dirty company cars

Dirty company cars are being subsidised too much, complain the Öko-Institut in Freiburg and the think tank Agora Verkehrswende. According to the institutes' calculations, the subsidies paid by German taxpayers for privately used company cars amount to up to six billion euros annually. Since it is mainly fuel-guzzlers with high engine power that are purchased by companies for their employees, this unnecessarily complicates the transport transition.

Noise cameras in Paris

Cities are gearing up in the fight against noise. After the introduction of a general 30 km/h speed limit in almost the entire city and the establishment of many cycle paths and zones with priority for pedestrians, Paris now wants to bring more peace to the city.
