Arrival by car
By car you get to MESSE ESSEN on the major Rhine-Ruhr motorways A52, A3 and A40/42.
As from January 2012 the Ruhr is covered by a spatially connected Low emission zone, within which just vehicles with a fine particle badges will be allowed to enter.
From January 2013 on only vehicles displaying a green or yellow badge on their windscreens are authorised to travel in these area. From Juli 2014 on only vehicles with a green badge have this permission.
We suggest an alternative routeing via autobahn A52. Please use motorway junction Essen Rüttenscheid and Essen Haarzopf respectively. Hence, the fairground as well as the parking lots are accessible without entering the low emission zone.
