Can I buy an umweltplakette in Basel?

Hi,
Just wondered if anyone knew of an office in Basel city where I can buy an umweltplakette for driving in Friborg De.
I have heard in passing that it exists but can't find it on the internet.

Thanks!

Don´t know about Switzerland, but in Germany you can go to any garage, show the car documents and get one issued

Yes, you can get it also from Switzerland. You can buy it online, just open this link below, and go to Shop link for proceeding with the purchase. It's very simple. Hope this might help.

You can buy them at any ATU garage/stores just across the border in Weil am Rhein, Lorrach or Rheinfelden. They cost 7 euros and all they need to see is the car's logbook/grey card.

So if I understand correctly, if you go to one of these ATU garages in Germany with your ownership papers, they make one for you while you wait?

Yes, it is a sticker, on passenger side of windscreen, bottom right (inside!).

€80 fine if entering restricted zones (Center of Lörrach) without a sticker...

Thanks.

We'll be driving into Germany after opening hours (around 7 pm), so do you know if there are other places where we can buy these stickers that would be open late, like motorway petrol stations? If not, we'll just have to chance it on our first night (staying in Heidelberg) and get one the following morning.

Re: Can I buy an umweltplakette in Basel?

You need a garage or the ADAC offices. You risk a fine parking on the public street in the center of Heidelberg, ask about the Umwelt Zone, or park in a hotel garage or on private car park.

We'll be parking in the hotel garage, so I guess we should be OK.
