Map of the low-emission zone in Wiesbaden

map: Umweltzone in Wiesbaden

The low-emission zone of Wiesbaden is shown on the map above with orange. As you can see, there are two separate parts that form the low-emission zone of Wiesbaden. The largest part covers the city center and most residential areas, whereas another part is centered around Mainz-Kostheim to the southeast of Wiesbaden. To reach the industrial area in between, an emissions sticker is not required. Not shown on the map but also good to know, is that the city of Mainz on the other side of the Rhine river has its own low-emission zone.


As in the rest of Germany, you do not need an emissions sticker on any of the highways around Wiesbaden. These are the A66, the A643 and the A671. Of course, this rule only applies if you enter and leave the low-emission zone on the highway. If you leave the highway within the low-emission zone, a sticker will still be required.

Parking outside the low-emission zone

At the end of the A643 there is a large P+R terrain called Kahle Mühle where you can park for free and from where regular buses bring you to the city center of Wiesbaden. If you go straight from the A643 to the P+R terrain, an emissions sticker is not required. On the map its location is marked with the letter A.
