Attention holidaymakers! Even an electric car must have an environmental sticker in Germany

In many German cities, cars, campers, buses and trucks must carry an environmental sticker, even if they have a foreign registration number. Diesel vehicles from before 2001 are no longer allowed in city centers. In the case of petrol vehicles, this limit is before the 1993 construction year.
