Parking and public transport
The Frankfurt Congress Center is part of the Messe Frankfurt (Frankfurt Fair). As the Messe is a massive complex, it is important to follow these directions when unfamiliar with the area.
By car & where to park
There are several ways to get to the Congress Center. The easiest way is via the A5 towards Frankfurt and then follow the A648. Once you are near the Congress Center, there are several parking options within walking distance:
By public transportation
From the airport & S-Bahn
- The easiest way from Frankfurt Airport to downtown Frankfurt is to follow the signs for regional trains.
- Take the S8 or S9 (both direction Hanau) and exit after approximately 17 minutes at Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof Central Station). From there, follow the "Central Station" instructions below.
- For all other S-Bahn lines, we also recommend exiting at Frankfurt's Central Station (Hauptbahnhof). It is important to note that some S-Bahn trains (S3, S4, S5 and S6) have a "Frankfurt (am Main) Messe" stop. However, direct access to the Congress Center via the exhibition grounds will be closed at the time of the event. Do not exit there!
Two tram lines stop at the Congress Center. Take Tram 16 (direction Ginnheim) or Tram 17 (direction Rebstockbad). Exit at the fourth stop (Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage) in front of the Marriott Hotel. The entrance of the Congress Center will be on the left side of the tram next to the Maritim Hotel.
U-Bahn (local metro)
At Central Station, follow the signs for U-Bahn U4. Take the direction Bockenheimer Warte and exit at the first stop (Festhalle/Messe). If you exit the U-Bahn station at the furthest end in the direction of travel, the Congress Center will be diagonally behind the Messe Turm, next to the Maritim Hotel.
From Central Station, it is a 15 to 20-minute walk to the Congress Center. When you exit the station, follow the main road towards the left (Am Hauptbahnhof/Düsseldorfer Strasse, followed by Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage) for about 1.5 kilometers, just before you reach a large traffic circle with large signs for the Marriott and Maritim hotels. You will find the entrance of the Congress Center on the left, on the left side of the Maritim Hotel.
