Map of the low-emission zone of Dinslaken

map: Umweltzone in Dinslaken

On the map above, the low-emission of Dinslaken is indicated with orange. It lies in between the Willy-Brandt-Straße, the A59, the Bruchstraße, the Brinkstraße, the Otto-Brenner-Straße and the train station. These streets themselves are not part of the low-emission zone, but within this area you need an emissions sticker to avoid a fine. The start of the zone is clearly indicated, so you need not be afraid that you will accidentally drive into the low-emission zone.

Even though Dinslaken lies not far from the Ruhr area, its low-emission zone is not part of the larger low-emission zone of the Ruhr. This zone starts several kilometers south of Dinslaken, near the town of Walsum.


Just to make things more complicated than necessary, they decided that the low-emission zone of Dinslaken should have two exceptions. These are a few streets that are reachable from the Karlstraße and a small business park along the Otto-Brenner-Straße. Both are indicated with blue on the map. Officially they are part of the low-emission zone, but you will not be fined if you do not have a sticker. Apparently this was an easier solution than moving the borders of the zone.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

If you do not have an emissions sticker, for example if your vehicle is not eligible, you can still park outside the low-emission zone of Dinslaken because it is rather small. One option is the shopping center (A on the map) just north of the train station. From here you can reach the city center on foot in less than 10 minutes. If you approach Dinslaken from the south, another option is the business park (B) at the end of the A59. From here you can take trams 902 and 903.

Which emissions sticker do you need in Dinslaken?

The green emissions sticker

Originally the red, yellow and green emissions stickers were all valid in Dinslaken, but since 1 July 2014 only the green sticker is allowed within the low-emission zone. If you do not have this green sticker, you risk a fine of €100.

Availability of the emissions sticker for Dinslaken

Because the same emissions sticker is valid all over Germany, it is not necessary to buy the sticker in Dinslaken itself to be able to drive within the low-emission zone of the city. If you still have some time left, you can buy the sticker at most German vehicle inspection companies along the road if you present your vehicle registration certificate. Larger car dealerships also will be able to help you out. Please note that most gas stations do not sell the emissions sticker.
