Relaxed parking next to the fairground
MESSE ESSEN offers ample parking facilities for travellers by car, including a modern car-park routing system. About 5,000 parking spaces next to the fairground and another 7,000 in the P + R system keep distances comfortably short for exhibitors.
Parking facilities next to the fairground for exhibitors
Parking facilities for exhibitors are available right next to the fairground. Please note that all parking lots are subject to a height limit of 1.90 m for vehicles.
Please use Messe Essen's Closed Exhibitor Area in order to purchase parking tickets for the fair.
MESSE ESSEN reserves special parking spaces for disabled people. They are located in the direct vicinity of our East, South and West entrances.Please keep your parking card for people with disabilities or your disabled persons pass at the ready. Our car park attendants will gladly assign you a special parking space.
The East entrance can be reached via car park P1. Special parking spaces in the underground garage P6 A and in the multi-storey car park P5 are available for the South/West entrances.
Please note that not all entrances are open for every fair. The website of the specific fair indicates which entrances are available.
(Bild, Bahn) The underground train 11 runs directly from Essen main railway station to the entrances. We recommend the West entrance. A ramp leads to the entrance from the platform after only 160 metres. From there, it is only about 270 m to the South entrance and about 700 m to the East entrance. The underground station at the East entrance has a lift.
