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 underground trains (U-Bahn). In addition, you can switch to a tram once you arrive at the Central Station. If you prefer to walk, this should take around 10 minutes.

By underground train (U-Bahn / Station: Festhalle / Messe)

With the underground line 4 (in the direction of Bockenheimer Warte), it is one stop until Festhalle/Messe. From here it is a short walk to the entrance next to the congress centre.

By tram (Station: Festhalle / Messe)

You can reach the tram stop via the main exit of Frankfurt Central Station by crossing the station forecourt. Next, you should take the 16 tram line (in the direction of Ginnheim) or 17 (in the direction of Rebstockbad) three stations until the Festhalle/Messe stop. From here it is a short walk to the entrance next to the congress centre.

On foot

This is a 10-minute walk from Düsseldorfer Strasse via Platz der Republik and Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage. The pyramidal top of the Messeturm tower will help you to find your bearings. From here it is a short walk to the entrance next to the congress centre.
