Off in a few days so no time to get one by post.
Is it possible to go in to Germany via Luxemburg and follow the Mosel to Cochem
and then back in to France without the sticker.
Just looking at options having thought that we were staying in the UK.

We went through Germany and tried on numerous occasions to get the sticker from garages. We were told there was no space on their forms to put our details, so not to worry. We even stopped at a huge Police Vehicle Inspection office where police officers were stopping lorries etc, and asked the police men in the office. In perfect english we were told not to worry, if it is enforced it's only in the really busy cities at the height of summer when the pollution is a problem. We were travelling in May. If you are concerned, and you still want to travel through Germany there is a list of cities that have the Umwelt Zone, and usually a big Vehicle Inspection depot on the motorway outside the city. Stop there and go in and ask the police as we did. Hope that helps, and above all - enjoy your trip! (y)

I don't think you will have any problems. I was really worried that we didn't have it, but after trying my hardest to buy one and being rebuffed at every turn, we just kept out of the major cities and the ones we did venture into weren't a problem anyway. We did the Rhine and the Romantic Road - it was beautiful. Have a lovely time.:)

Hi, I was at Enkirch in June, got one from the car dealership there. I had also been to another dealership in Zell the previous day when out on my bike, they also did them but I didn't have my logbook with me. Seemed pretty easy to get one (y)

Don't think there are any areas on the Mosel where you will need the Umwelt sticker
I got mine from Berlin City Council who have a website where you can fill in the details and pay and if memory serves the sticker arrived three days later.

All decent size German town will have a TUV which is the German MOT testing station. They all sell Umwelt stickers if you produce you registration document. 12 euros of if they like the look of you 5.

We did a similar route this summer and did not need one, even in Cologne there was an umwelt free route to the stellplatze and back out of the city.

We went all the way to the black forest last year coming back via Cochem.

Our Funster sticker was the only extra we had.

No problems encountered.

I am sure that it is only the big cities that have the Umwelt zones. (y)

We went to the Mosel in May, a little worried as we had no umweltzone sticker. However half way along the Mosel there is a fiat commercial garage ( ideal if you have Ducato probs (we didn't ) we got a sticker from them for 5€
However we didn't need it at all during the trip. Glad we got it for next time though.

Just go into any main dealer of your particular m/h (Fiat, Mercedes, Peugeot ECT) and they will do one for you there, I got mine in near Cochem for free (mercedes)

I try to keep on the motorways in Germany but did once stray into a city and saw the signs but just had to go with
