Plan your journey simply and comfortably with our practical tips and information – there are many ways to get around.

Getting there by public transport

The exhibition grounds are located on the U2 underground line. The Summit (B2B) can be reached via the Messestadt West underground station and the Open Space Extended (B2C) via Messestadt Ost.

The U2 underground line in the direction of Messestadt Ost runs a direct service to Messe München Monday to Friday between 06:00 and 20:00 h every 5 minutes. From the city center of Munich, the Summit and the Open Space Extended are easy to reach in approx. 25 minutes by public transport.

Getting there by car

The Summit and Open Space Extended at the exhibition grounds can be reached via the A94 Autobahn. Sign-posts will guide you to the appropriate parking areas even before you leave the Autobahn at the München-Riem exit.

A dynamic traffic control system regulates traffic to the exhibition grounds, directing you to the nearest available parking slot.

We will publish detailed information on the open entrances and parking areas for the IAA 2021 shortly. During tradeshows, access in front of the entrances is restricted.

Parking will be available from two hours prior to the Summit and the Open Space Extended opening hours and will close two hours after the events end.
