On the map above you can see that the low-emission zone of Halle covers the city center as well as some residential areas. The B80, the Paracelsusstraße, the Freiimfelder Straße and the river Saale roughly form the borders of the zone. An emissions sticker is not required in the suburbs of Halle that lie to the west, east and south of the city center.

Exceptions

In Halle there are no exceptions such as roads which you can use to drive through the low-emission zone without a sticker. Important to know is that on the roads that form the border of the zone, an emissions sticker is not required. This means that you can pass through Halle on the B80 or the Paracelsusstraße without the need for an emissions sticker. On most major intersections, the beginning of the low-emission zone is clearly indicated.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

If you only visit Halle to see the historical city center, you could park outside the low-emission zone and then continue using public transport. There is ample parking opportunity at Wohn-Centrum Lührmann (A on the map) from where you can take a tram or even walk to the center in under 10 minutes. The train station (B) is another possibility, but you may find it more difficult to find an empty parking sport there.
