Low Emission Zone in Antwerp as of February 2017

January 13, 2017

Soot and fine particles pollute the air and are detrimental to the environment and public health. A large part of this pollution is obviously emitted by cars, which is why the City of Antwerp has decided to exclude the most polluting vehicles from the city as of 1 February 2017. The city centre will become a low emission zone (LEZ). It is the road to a healthier, cleaner future.

Please be aware that Antwerp Management School
is located within the Low Emission Zone.

If you are planning to visit Antwerp  or Antwerp Management School by car as of February 2017, start by checking here whether your vehicle may enter the low emission zone. If your vehicle may enter the city, but it doesn’t have a Belgian or Dutch number plate, then you will need to register your car first. 

Does your car not meet the conditions for admission to the LEZ? Do you still want to drive into the city centre? Then you can purchase a LEZ day pass up to eight times a year.

Alternatively, you can also travel to Antwerp in another way:

  • When you travel to Antwerp by train, you arrive in one of the world’s most beautiful train stations in the centre of the city. From here, you can easily get to your destination by tram, bustaxi or even on foot.
  • Park your car in one of the many park & ride zones around the city and hop on a tram or bus. No more worrying about where to park your car.
