Environmental zone (green)

Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter an environmental zone, each vehicle concerned requires a valid green environmental sticker. Otherwise, a fine of 80 euros plus 25 euros processing fee is to be expected.

The green environmental zone can be recognized by the traffic signs 270.1 and 270.2.

In front of each zone there is the sign 270.1 with an additional sign for the permitted sticker.
The end of the low emission zone is shown by the sign 270.2.


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

Yes, a lot of them. With over 80 different environmental zones, Germany has one of the most in Europe.


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

Electric cars

Is there a sticker for electric cars?

Yes! However, the sticker for electric vehicles is not intended for everyone. If the vehicle is registered in Germany, the last character on the license plate can be an "E". However, if the vehicle is registered abroad, an electric sticker (E-sticker) is required.

The E-sticker gives you various advantages. Depending on the municipality, there are various advantages, such as the use of bus lanes, free parking on the road and at electricity charging points, as well as the possible use of otherwise closed roads.

Yes, every car, no matter whether it is being driven on with petrol, diesel or electricity, requires a green environmental sticker according to the law. The E-sticker also entitles you to additional advantages over non-electric vehicles. The 35th BImSchV does not provide a separate paragraph for electric vehicles, which regulates them as an exception. Therefore: If an electric vehicle drives into a green environmental zone without a green sticker, a fine of 80 € + approx. 25 € handling fee must be expected.

Truckers to the office!

Not only since the pandemic have we noticed a shortage of long-distance drivers. Who is still prepared to drive goods across Europe for hours and days on end, harassed by environmental zones that many a heavy truck with the wrong sticker has to avoid. In the future, truck drivers may only need a screen and an armchair to direct the fleet.

Penance for "wild charging"

One of the biggest challenges for switching to electric cars is the inadequate charging network. Drivers still have to spend far too long looking for a free charging point. If the sales figures for electric cars increase, the problem will automatically worsen.
