How to reach Messe Frankfurt

Messe Frankfurt is centrally located at the heart of Europe. In Frankfurt and its surroundings you will find a large selection of hotels. Here you will find the most important information about your arrival as well as tips for your stay.

Travelling from the airport

From Frankfurt Airport, it is a 15-minute journey by car or taxi to the exhibition grounds, arriving at the City Entrance/Festhalle (“Eingang City/Festhalle”), Galleria Entrance (“Eingang Galleria”) or Portalhaus Entrance (“Eingang Portalhaus”).

From the airport, you can take the S-Bahn suburban train lines S8 or S9 (in the direction of Hanau or Offenbach Ost) to Frankfurt Central Station ("Hauptbahnhof"). Suburban train lines S3, S4, S5 and S6 will then take you directly to the trade fair grounds (station: “Frankfurt (Main) Messe”).

Travelling from Frankfurt Central Station

Frankfurt Central Station is only a few hundred metres away from Messe Frankfurt. The underground station there provides fast direct access with the suburban trains (S-Bahn) and underground trains (U-Bahn). In addition, you can switch to a tram or taxi once you arrive at the Central Station. If you prefer to walk, this should take around 10 minutes.

Event admission tickets that bear the symbol of the RMV network are also valid for travel on public transport (except for admission vouchers and complimentary tickets). These include free travel to and from the event on the public transport network within the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV) area. One-day tickets purchased at the ticket office are only valid for public transportation on the return journey from the trade fair.

The online ticket can only be used in the RMV public transport network in connection with a valid ID card or passport. Admission vouchers exchanged online also entitle holders to travel free on the RMV network.
