Map of the low-emission zone in Siegen

map: Umweltzone in Siegen

The low-emission zone of Siegen is shown on the map above with orange. The entire city center as well as the industrial area north of the city lie within the zone. Because these parts lie in a deep valley, exhaust gas cannot easily escape which then leads to air pollution.

Good to know is that on the B62 and the part of the B54 west of Siegen, an emissions sticker is not required. Only if you enter the city itself do you enter the low-emission zone. The part of the B54 that connects Siegen with Wilnsdorf goes through the low-emission zone. To avoid having to buy an emissions sticker, you can instead take the A45 south of Siegen to travel east.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

If you do not have an emissions sticker but want to visit the city center of Siegen, the best place to park is on the other side of the train station (A on the map). There are several schools here with plenty of parking opportunities. Use the pedestrian bridge over the railroad track and you will be in the city center of Siegen within five minutes.

Which emissions sticker do you need in Siegen?

The green emissions sticker

As everywhere in the German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, you need the green emissions sticker for the low-emission zone of Siegen. If you do not have the green emissions sticker, you risk a fine of €100 if caught by the police.

Where to buy the emissions sticker

The emissions sticker can be bought all over Germany, so you can also buy it before you reach Siegen. The best place to look are vehicle inspection companies, though some car dealerships authorized to perform exhaust emission tests will also issue the sticker for you. Gas stations on the highway do not sell the sticker. Make sure that you bring your vehicle registration certificate with you. It is necessary to check whether your vehicle is eligible for the emissions sticker.
