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...

Danish low emission zones explained

There are four environmental zones in Denmark. These are located in the capital Copenhagen, as well as in Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense. All these low emission zones are permanently valid and affect diesel buses, vans and trucks, i.e. vehicles of classes M2 and M3 as well as N1, N2 and N3. While until the middle of last year there were still environmental badges with which the vehicles had to be marked, there is now registration and electronic controls.

Belgian low emission zones explained

There are three low emission zones in Belgium, namely in the capital Brussels, as well as in Antwerp and Ghent. All three low emission zones are permanently valid. Vehicles need to be registered to enter. Belgian and also Dutch vehicles are exempt. These are entered directly into the register when the vehicle is registered. There are two different registrations for the three environmental zones. They also have different regulations.

Noise costs billions

Noise costs the French state more than 150 billion euros every year. Physical and mental illnesses, but also the depreciation of property are included here. Traffic is an immense contributor to noise. A culture of noise management should help.
