Map of the low-emission zone in Gladbeck

map: Umweltzone in Gladbeck

On the map above you can see which parts of Gladbeck are covered by the low-emission zone. The parts of the city north of the Konrad-Adenauer-Allee, the Sandstraße and the Hegestraße are not included in the zone. An emissions sticker is not compulsory here. Because since 1 January 2012 the low-emission zone of Gladbeck is part of the much larger low-emission zone of the Ruhr area, the zone also extends beyond the borders of this map.


Apart from in the northern suburbs of Gladbeck, you also do not need an emissions sticker on the A2. This is because the German highways are never part of low-emission zones. Look at our map of the Ruhr area to see where you can leave the zone without having to need an emissions sticker. If however, you leave the highway within the zone, a sticker will be required.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

If you want to reach the city center of Gladbeck, but have not been able to acquire an emissions sticker, it is still possible to park outside the low-emission zone. For a short visit, you could park at the Artur-Schirrmacher-Sporthalle (A on the map) on the Konrad-Adenauer-Allee. Because Gladbeck is not a very large city, you can easily walk to the city center from here.
