Travel by car

The Fairground Munich is located directly on the A94 motorway with two direct exits available. A dynamic traffic-guidance system regulates the flow of traffic, guides fair-going vehicles and directs trade fair visitors to the nearest available parking at the fairground.

Driving to the fairground with a navigation System
To get to the fairground, the destination address to enter is "Am Messeturm".

Depending on which navigation system you use, the fairground is listed under the categories "Exhibition Centre", "Trade Fair Centre" and under the German keyword "Messe".

Some navigation systems allow you to select the entrances, in this case: Entrance East.

Address: Eingang Ost, Am Messeturm 4, 81829 München

Parking at the Fairground Munich
The fairground has ample parking for exhibitors and visitors. In any case, the traffic guidance system will guide you to available parking.

Parking tariffs
Outdoor area: 8.00 € per car/day

Munich's city zone has been designated as a low emission zone, which is marked with traffic signs and additional signs. All streets located inside the "Mittlerer Ring" are considered to be in the low emission zone, for which a sticker is required. The "Mittlerer Ring" itself is not in the low emission zone.

The Fairground Munich is outside the low emission zone. But if you want to drive into or through the city centre of Munich an emissions sticker is required.

The emissions sticker can be ordered directly from the German TÜV.

Ban on truck/lorry traffic in Munich

As part of the city of Munich's clean-air initiative, through traffic of trucks/lorries weighing more than 3.5 tons is no longer permitted in the city. The ban concept calls for through traffic of trucks/lorries to be diverted to the A99 motorway. Traffic will be diverted or rerouted by warning signs in outlying areas, by prohibitive signs within the city limits (sign with the addition "Lieferverkehr frei" (delivery vehicles only)) and by detour signs indicating the way to the nearest motorway.

Effect on vehicles making deliveries to the Fairground Munich:
The vehicle ban expressly permits delivery vehicles whose point of origin or destination is within Munich. As a result, deliveries to and from the fairground are not affected by the vehicle ban. However, trucks/lorries whose destinations are outside of Munich may not take the A94 motorway toward Munich when leaving the fairground because doing so would make them "through traffic".

Travel by train

Munich is very easy to reach by train from all German cities as well as from a number of European metropolises. Comfortable, fast, safe and eco-friendly - German Rail takes you right into the centre of Munich.

From the main station, the U2 underground line runs in the direction of Messestadt Ost to the Munich exhibition grounds. During rush hours on weekdays, the U2 runs every 5 minutes. Get off at the terminus of the U2 underground line "Messestadt Ost" and use the East Entrance.
