Finding your way in the city centre is easy thanks to a state-of-the-art traffic management system.
Bremen low-emission zone
Bremen’s low-emission zone came into effect in January 2009. Only vehicles displaying the appropriate discs are permitted to travel in the districts of Altstadt and Östliche Vorstadt, some parts of Schwachhausen and most of Neustadt.
Since 1 July 2011, only vehicles displaying a green disc are permitted to travel through the low-emission zone.
From 1 July 2012, it will also be mandatory for coaches to display a green disc.
