Map of the low-emission zone in Osnabrück

map: Umweltzone in Osnabrück

The low-emission zone of Osnabrück is shown on the map above with orange. It covers the entire historical city center and most suburbs that still lie north of the A30. The important industrial areas and business parks east and northwest of Osnabrück do not lie within the zone. They can be reach even when you do not have an emissions sticker.

On most major intersections, the start of the zone is clearly indicated with road signs, so you do not need to worry that you will accidentally drive into a part of the city where the sticker is required. The highways, the A1, A30 and A33 in Osnabrück, are never part of any low-emission zones in Germany.

Parking outside the low-emssion zone

If your vehicle is not eligible for an emissions sticker or if you found out about it too late, you could still park outside the low-emission zone of Osnabrück. If you want to reach the city center, you could park on the large parking terrain near the Slachthofstraße (A on the map) from where you would have to walk about 15 minutes. The Franz-Lenz-Straße (B) is another option. You can park at one of the supermarkets and then walk to the city center.
