Since January 1st, 2018 the Brussels-Capital Region has become a Low Emission Zone (LEZ). If you are entering the city in a car or van, check here to find out whether you are allowed to drive your vehicle within the LEZ. If you do not meet the conditions, we would remind you that there are park-and-ride car parks on the access routes leading into Brussels as well as alternatives to the car.
