Map of the low-emission zone of Marburg

map: Umweltzone in Marburg

The low-emission zone of Marburg can be seen on the map above. Not only the old city center, but also almost all residential areas and the villages Wehrda, Marbach and Ockerhousen lie within the zone. A few suburbs south of the center as well as the industrial and business areas to the north and south of Marburg are not part of the zone. An emissions sticker is not required here.


If you don’t need to be in Marburg itself, but only want to pass through the city, then you can use the B3. On this road, indicated with a blue line on the map, an emissions sticker is not required as long as you do not leave the road to enter the city. You will not receive a fine on the B3.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

Even if you just want to visit Marburg, then this is possible without an emissions sticker. If you park at the Media Markt (A on the map) right next to the B3 or at the parking terrain called Universitätsparkplatz (B) immediately on the other side of the B3, a sticker is also not required. While these parking lots are intended to give you access to the shopping center and the university, it will only take 10 to 15 minutes to reach the historical city center from here.

Which emissions sticker do you need in Marburg?

The green emissions sticker

To drive within the low-emission zone of Marburg you need the green emissions sticker. The older red and yellow stickers are not valid here and you will receive the same fine of €100 as you will receive when you do not have an emissions sticker.

Where can you buy the German emissions sticker?

To buy a German emissions sticker, you can visit a vehicle inspection company anywhere in Germany and ask for an Umweltplakette. Make sure you bring your vehicle registration certificate with you, which you probably will have in your car anyway because that is a legal requirement in Germany. Some larger car dealerships also sell the sticker, but gas stations along the highway do not.

What is there to see and do in Marburg?


Marburg may not be a very famous city outside of Germany, but there is a lot to see and do. First of all, there is the medieval castle that towers high above the historical city. It was built as a residence for the Landgraves of Marburg. The Elisabethkirche, the oldest Gothic church in Germany, is also worth seeing, as are the numerous half-timbered houses and other buildings in the center. The Philipps-Universiteit from 1527 was the first protestant university in the world.
