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...

All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.


New rules for low emission zones in January 2022

The new year is barely a few days old, but already there are important changes in the environmental zones in many European cities. Often the changes only affect individual cities, but sometimes they affect entire countries. But some tightening has been postponed, on the one hand because pollutants have decreased due to the pandemic-related decrease in traffic, and on the other hand because drivers want to be given enough time to adjust to innovations in difficult times. Green-Zones® lists the new rules for January.

Stuttgart: Diesel driving bans are successful

Due to court rulings on the grounds of excessive nitrogen dioxide content, Stuttgart had to introduce diesel driving bans in January 2019: Vehicles with Euro 4 and below have not been allowed to enter since then. In Stuttgart's city centre and the districts of Bad Cannstatt, Feuerbach and Zuffenhausen, an even stricter regime has been in place since July 2020: on some roads there, only Euro 5 and above are allowed to drive.
