Map of the Limburg low-emissions zone
Green Zone in Limburg, Germany
Limburg is one of the most heavily burdened German cities in terms of nitrogen oxides and other pollutants produced mainly by heavy traffic and less environmentally friendly vehicles. The aim of the low-emissions zone is to prevent vehicles from entering that emit a high concentration of nitrogen oxides and so severely deteriorate air quality. The restrictions apply to cars and trucks.
Therefore, from 1st February 2018, only German and foreign cars with a valid environmental badge, of the green colour and the strictest class, may enter the city.
Which types of vehicles are affected?
The obligation to own the environmental badge applies to both German and foreign passenger cars (M1); motorhomes (M1); heavy campers (M1); minibuses (M2); buses (M3); small transporters (N1); transporters (N2); trucks (N2); and heavy goods vehicles (N3).
Driving in Limburg
Are you going to Limburg by car?
From 1. 2. 2018, entry to Limburg by both German and foreign cars is only permitted on condition that a green plaque is placed on the windscreen. Entrance is therefore allowed only to vehicles with the lowest impact on air pollution and that thus comply with the Euro 4 (diesel) or Euro 1 (petrol) emissions classes. Failure to comply with these rules is punished in Germany with a fine of 80 €.
The Limburg low-emissions zone excludes the A3, the B8 motorways from the north-east to the Limburg-Nord junction, and the northern connections B49 and B54.
