Frankfurt low emission zone

The city of Frankfurt has established a low emission zone for motor vehicles. Since January 1st, 2012, only vehicles with a green emissions sticker may enter the zone.

Vehicles from Germany and abroad that meet the emissions criteria may obtain the necessary sticker from the TÜV-SÜD (the official technical inspection agency).


The city of Frankfurt’s low emission zone is located within the motorway ring formed by the A5 motorway to the west, the A3 to the south and the A661 to the east. Low emission vehicles displaying the appropriate sticker can drive to Messe Frankfurt at all times.

Vehicles without emissions stickers can also drive to Messe Frankfurt

Vehicles without emissions stickers can also drive to Messe Frankfurt; theyare permitted to drive to the West gate or the North gate of the exhibitiongrounds. These gates can be reached from the A5, either via the A648, Rebstockexit, or the Katharinenkreisel roundabout. Messe Frankfurt's Rebstock multi-storeycar park can also be reached from the Rebstock exit.

You are only permitted to drive in the low emission zone (areas marked in red) if your vehicle displays an emissions sticker. Driving in the low emission zone in a vehicle that does not display a sticker is a violation of the law that is punishable by a fine.
