IMPORTANT NOTE FOR CONGRESS ATTENDEES WHO WILL BE COMING TO ANTWERP BY CAR
Please note that as of 2017, Antwerp has decreed that a large part of the inner city will fall under the rules of the 'LEZ', the Low Emission Zone.
This means that the most polluting cars will no longer be allowed in the city, and risk a fine upon entering.
More information about the LEZ can be found here: https://www.slimnaarantwerpen.be/en/lez
To find out if your car is permitted in the LEZ or not, you can take the test here: https://lez.antwerpen.be/?Taal=EN
