Important announcement regarding the "low emission zone" in Leipzig
Since the 1st of March 2011 about 60 percent of the urban area of Leipzig has been declared a "low emission zone" to protect the environment from air pollution.
Therefore within this zone only vehicles which have an official green sticker placed on the front windscreen are allowed. To obtain such a sticker, the vehicle must meet certain standards (i.e. age, type of fuel, diesel particulate filter etc.). This regulation is also valid for foreigners who travel to Leipzig by car.
If you cannot show a valid sticker during a traffic check, you will have to pay a fine of 80,- Euros.
The stickers are available for about 5,- € at most car repair shops in Germany or via internet, e.g. the website of TÜV-Nord (6,- €):
ATTENTION: The agra-area with parking lot and camping site can be reached via A38 / B2 without having to enter the "low emission zone"! (Please see the map of the zone below) That means it is possible for visitors to park their vehicle at the agra-parking lot (you will need a WGT parking ticket in this case, which can also be obtained on location) and reach all other locations by public transport.
