Fine dust sticker Information issue


There are clean air plans for areas with poor air quality. Clean air plans contain measures to improve air quality. Low emission zones are one possible measure in such clean air plans. Low emission zones reduce particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide pollution. Vehicles with high pollutant emissions are not allowed to drive in low emission zones.

If you want to drive your vehicle in such an environmental zone, you must purchase a fine dust sticker/environmental sticker. The sticker is available in three different colors, each of which is assigned to a pollutant group. The classification of your vehicle into one of the pollutant groups is based on the emission code numbers. These can be found in the vehicle documents.

Note: A separate traffic sign indicates the environmental zones. The additional sign shows the colors of the stickers that allow vehicles to drive freely in the specific environmental zone.

To obtain an environmental badge, your vehicle must meet the criteria of pollutant groups 2, 3 or 4.

You cannot obtain a sticker for vehicles in pollutant group 1. These are

  • Petrol vehicles without a regulated catalytic converter and
  • older diesel vehicles with emission standard Euro 1 or worse.

Vehicle registration certificate (for older vehicles) or registration certificate part I (for newer vehicles)

Depending on the city or district, AU workshop or testing organization: usually EUR 5.00 - 8.00


In most cases, you will receive the sticker immediately.

  • the vehicle registration authorities
    • City district: the city administration
    • District: the district administration
  • the bodies recognized to carry out exhaust emission tests (AU), e.g. AU workshops, approved test organizations such as Dekra, GTÜ, KÜS, TÜV, FSP or technical test centres

Some urban and rural districts provide online services. You can use these to order an environmental badge. You pay by direct debit, bank transfer or credit card. The sticker will be sent to you by post. The exact regulations can be found on the websites.

If you are planning to drive into an environmental zone, try to buy a fine dust sticker/environmental badge as early as possible. If there is a delay and you do not have a fine dust sticker/environmental badge, you will not be allowed to drive in the environmental zone.
