Do I need a sticker for the new Environmental Zone when arriving by car?
An Environmental Zone came into force in Berlin starting 1 January 2008. The exhibition site and ICC are located outside the Environmental Zone. Visitors arriving by car via the motorway system and entering the exhibition site directly via the interchange marked "Messegelände/Messedamm" are outside the zone and do not require a sticker

The Berlin Exhibition Grounds are wheelchair accessible.
