Cars need green environment stickers
Note that since the beginning of 2015 Darmstadt set up an Environmental Zone (Umweltzone) around the city, which means that driving in is limited to cars with the green environment sticker. If you are driving from abroad and do not have this windshield sticker, you need to obtain one first. It only costs around 6 Euros and saves you from much higher fines. Look for a TÜV Süd service center for example to obtain a green sticker.
