Environmental Zone Dortmund Map
Green Zone in Dortmund, Germany
In 2008, Dortmund introduced environmental zones, as did Bonn, Essen, Herten and other cities in the region. These cities gradually tightened entry rules to keep the air clean and the noise level low. From 1.10.2008, vehicles with red, yellow or green stickers were allowed to enter; on 1.1.2013, this was reduced to cars with the yellow or green stickers. Finally, from 1.7. 2014, the city has banned the entry of cars with a yellow environmental badge, so only the most environmentally friendly vehicles (with the green sticker) have been let in.
