Please note the environmental zone in Leipzig
On 1 March 2011, Leipzig has introduced the so-called Umweltzone (environmental zone). From this day forward only vehicles that display the green environmental card in their windscreen are allowed to drive to the premises of the Sportforum Leipzig. The granting of such an environmental card is based on satisfactory emission standards. Failure to produce the green card may result in a fine of €40 and 1 point in the German central-index for traffic offences (Verkehrszentralregister) in Flensburg. Since the premises of the Sportforum Leipzig - the Arena Leipzig, the Festwiese Leipzig and the Red Bull Arena – are all located inside the environmental zone, it is necessary to obtain the green environmental card prior to your planned arrival with your car.
