Low-Emission Zone - a short introduction
As of 1st February, 2016, Aachen will have an "Umweltzone" (Environmental Zone or Low-Emission Zone). From that date onwards, only vehicles with a Green Sticker or a special permit will be allowed to enter the Environmental Zone.
For the most part, the boundary of the Environmental Zone follows Aachen's outer ring road and includes all the streets and roads within the designated area. For a detailed overview, click on the following link: Map (pdf).
The City of Aachen's website features an Environmental Zone page that covers everything you need to know on the topic. You'll find a range of useful information there:
