by local public transport
Arriving by car
Ten highways lead into Cologne’s beltway, which brings you directly to the exhibition center without junctions or traffic lights. Simply follow the green signs marked “Koelnmesse”. There are about 14,500 parking spaces around the exhibition center. Free shuttle buses run from the car parks to the entrances.
Traffic restrictions Kalk tunnel (B55a) / motorway junction Köln-Ost (Cologne-East)
Due to the general renovation of the Kalk tunnel on the B55a between the Zoobrücke and the Köln-Ost motorway junction, traffic restrictions will likely be in place near the trade fair grounds until the end of 2015. During the entire construction period, only two lanes out of the usual three will be open in the tunnel in each direction of travel. The tunnel remains closed to HGVs over 7.5 tonnes. Additionally, the slip roads at Köln-Ost motorway junction from the A3 to the B55a travelling towards Cologne and the access onto the B55a from Buchheimer Ring towards the city are closed.
If you are travelling on the A3 from the North, leave the A3 at the Mülheim exit and follow the signs towards Koelnmesse (via the Mülheim access road, Clevischer Ring, Bergischer Ring, Pfälzischer Ring).
If you are travelling on the A3 from the South, take the A4 at the Heumar motorway junction. At the Gremberg junction, take the A59/559 towards the eastern access road (L 124) and follow the signs to Koelnmesse.
Due to the closures and traffic restrictions, travel on the city motorway B55a as well as on the diversion routes can be expected to take considerably longer than usual. We recommend giving the tunnel in Kalk as wide a berth as possible.
Arriving by bus and train
Due to its location in the center of Europe, Koelnmesse can be quickly reached by trains of Deutsche Bahn from many cities in Germany and abroad. In addition, the Köln Messe/Deutz station for high-speed trains is located directly next to the exhibition grounds.
