Green Zone in Berlin, Germany
Berlin was chosen as the first city for the introduction of environmental stickers in Germany. From 1. 1. 2008, only cars with a valid environmental badge (red, yellow or green) were allowed to enter the environmental zones. Initially, entrance was granted to even less environmentally friendly vehicles. That changed, however, on 1.1. 2010, since which date only vehicles with a green badge may enter the city.
In 2008, environmental zones were introduced also, for example, in Hannover and Munich, so to obtain an environmental sticker will certainly pay off.
