Arriving by plane

The easiest way to travel between the airport and Messe Frankfurt is the S-Bahn. The commuter railway lines S8 and S9 leave from Regionalbahnhof (regional train station) under Terminal 1 in the direction of Offenbach Ost and Hanau.

The first two stations from Frankfurt Airport are Stadion (Commerzbank-Arena, Eintracht Frankfurt) and Niederrad. The third stop after 12 minutes is Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (Frankfurt Central Station).

Exit the central station to catch either U-Bahn Nr. 4 (direction Bockenheimer Warte), Tram 16 (direction Ginheim) or Tram 17 (direction Rebstockbad) and get off at Festhalle/Messe and walk for about five minutes to Entrance Festhalle Süd and follow the signage to Halle 3 (Hall 3).

Please note: Limited access to the fair grounds via the S-Bahn Terminal at stop "Messe Frankfurt"

The Fare

A ticket costs € 4.95 for adults (Preisstufe 4), tickets can be purchased from ticket machines at the regional train station. This ticket is good for a one-way trip to the Festhalle/Messe stop.
