How to get there

from Munich airport

Two terminals belong to Munich International Airport (MUC). T2 is a unique joint project by Munich Airport and Deutsche Lufthansa AG and is used exclusively by Lufthansa, Star Alliance members and LH code-share partners. All other airlines use T1.

The city train station is located directly below the central area of the Munich airport. From there, a train departs for the city centre every 10 minutes. There are various routes to choose from to travel between the airport and the exhibition grounds.

By car

Road signs in the outskirt of town and throughout the entire city indicate the way to Messe München, the ICM – Internationales Congress Center München.

Depending on which navigation system you have, you’ll find the Messe München along with the ICM in the category “event centres” or “exhibition grounds”, or under the keyword “trade fair”.

During each event, the New Munich Trade Fair’s traffic control system guides you to the nearest parking areas.

from central station

The U2 subway (U-Bahn) line direction Messestadt Ost runs from 4:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., and takes you directly to the Messe München and the ICM. During peak travel times on weekdays, the U2 runs every 5 minutes.

By taxi

Taxis are available at central hubs just like the airport or main station or can be ordered by phone.
