Due to Koelnmesse’s central location, which is conveniently situated for many transport links, visitors can quickly reach the exhibition centre from many European cities both within and outside of Germany by car, train, plane and local public transport. Here you will also find information on special traffic measures in the vicinity of the exhibition centre.

Construction measures in front of the Southern Halls

Construction is under way directly adjacent to Koelnmesse's Southern halls. Strabag Real Estate and ECE are in the process of implementing the large-scale project MesseCity Köln, which will further enhance Koelnmesse's surroundings. Despite the construction site, it is still possible to use the South entrance as usual as well as the travel options provided by the public local and long-distance train services. The shuttle buses and taxis will also be available for visitors as usual in close proximity to the Cologne Messe/Deutz train station.
