How to get there

Frankfurt is very well connected to the international and regional public transport. Within the city there is a vast public transport network via fast trains (S-Bahn), underground, tram and bus.


The closest stations to the Congress Center Messe are:

  • ‘Festhalle/Messe’: by tram lines 16 and 17 and underground line 4 running at least every 10 min, from there it’s a 5 min walk to the Congress Center
  • ‘Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage’: by tram lines 16 and 17 running at least every 10 min, from there you just have to cross the street

Both stations are connected to Frankfurt main station within about 10 minutes. From the airport, please take the S-Bahn to the main station and you will reach the venue in about 40 min.

Do not use the S-Bahn station ‘Messe’ – this is another entrance to Frankfurt fairground, but located on the opposite side (besides hall 8). You can’t cross the fairground.
