It is the mission of the U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart to provide facility support services and quality-of-life programs and activities to Service members, Civilians, Retirees and their Families in our area of operation. This area encompasses the installations contained within the cities of Stuttgart, Boeblingen, Vaihingen and Moehringen. Stuttgart is a "Purple" community meaning that all Armed Forces to include the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are supported by USAG Stuttgart. For more information, go to the USAG Stuttgart homepage.
German states have passed a Dangerous Dog Ordinance (DDO), placing restrictions upon the ownership of certain types of dogs. Military and civilian personnel moving to Germany should weigh the requirements of the German DDO and owner responsibilities for dogs that fit the criteria when making a decision to bring such dogs with them. Pets do not have to be quarantined upon arrival in Germany, but a bilingual health certificate is required.
Diesel Traffic Ban in Stuttgart
As part of its Clean Air Act, the City of Stuttgart implemented a traffic ban for all diesel vehicles with a Euro emission standard 4 / IV and lower beginning January 2019. The City of Stuttgart may also extend the traffic ban to include Euro emission standard 5 /V diesel vehicles beginning in 2020. Stuttgart military community members residing within the Stuttgart City limits will have a transitional period until March 31 before the ban takes effect on April 1.
There is not an easily identifiable way to determine the Euro emission standard for a U.S. specification diesel vehicle. For many Euro spec vehicles registered through U.S. Army Europe, owners can locate the respective Euro standard on a data plate inside the passenger, or driver, doorframe. For many Euro spec vehicles, the emission standard is listed on the registration/ownership documents (Fahrzeugschein) under section 14 and 14.1.
The diesel traffic ban currently affects all areas within the Stuttgart city limits including Patch, Kelley, and Robinson Barracks. This area extends beyond the existing environmental zones. According to Stuttgart officials, the boundaries of the diesel traffic ban do extend beyond the environmental zone, with very few exceptions that allow accessing areas outside the city limits by transiting through the city. Signs informing motorists of the diesel ban are located alongside major roadways, including A81 between Panzer Kaserne and Patch Barracks.
One way to informing newcomers of the diesel traffic ban is through sponsorship. The Directorate of Human Resources is incorporating this information in ongoing sponsorship training as well as working to have the information added to inbound military members’ orders. The garrison is also working with the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center to have similar diesel traffic ban warnings added to civilian employee orders.

Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. Germany’s DSN area code is 314.
