Low emission zone Copenhagen

Important!

Effective since:
01.09.2008

Type of zone:
permanently valid, 24 h a day, 365 days a year

Area/extension of the zone:
The low emission zone mainly concerns the centre of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg Municipality. In order not to obstruct the commercial traffic/ferry traffic to and from Copenhagen too much, a transit route from Nordhavnen leads through the low emission zone, which is not part of the zone.

Fines:
1700 €

Stickers / registration necessary?
yes, Registration Denmark

Affected vehicles and driving bans:

Diesel vehicles: minibus (M2), coach (M3), van (N1), truck (N2), heavy truck (N3)

Vans under 3.5 t must have at least one initial registration from 01.01.2007 (Euro 4).
Buses and trucks must have at least one initial registration from 01.10.2009 (Euro 5).

Every vehicle from the above-mentioned date is automatically registered and the comparison is made with the central vehicle register in the respective country.
If a van was registered before 2007 or bus/truck before October 2009 and has a corresponding fine particle filter (PM), the registration must be carried out manually.

Exceptions:
Doctor, disabled vehicle, fire brigade, ambulance, military, oldtimer older than 30 years, police

Copenhagen

Do I need stickers or registrations?

Since 01 July 2020, every vehicle concerned requires a valid Registration Denmark to enter the low emission zone. Otherwise, a fine of up to 1,700 euros is to be expected. Before 01.07.2020 the EcoSticker was still mandatory.

(invalid from 01.07.2020)

The beginning and end of the low emission zones are marked with signs. These currently still show the (old) status, which was valid for the EcoSticker until 01 July 2020. You can see a prohibition sign for buses and trucks with the reference to the (old) EcoSticker. There are no new traffic signs concerning registration and camera controls yet. But these should appear in time.
