Driving in Aachen Rothe Erde
People in Germany drive on the right side of the road, so if you are visiting from a country where driving on the left is considered normal, it is really important to take extra care. Many of Germany’s cities now have “environmental zones” which means your car will need an eco- sticker if you want to drive through these areas.
While on-street parking is limited, you’ll find a host of large car parks in the city centre, making it easy to visit all of the places on your itinerary. There’s also Park and Ride services to the centre of Aachen should you want to save fuel and take a rest from driving.
