Travel to the Messe Düsseldorf Fairgrounds


Messe Düsseldorf and the Regional Public Transportation Network VRR / VRS (Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Sieg) offer trade show exhibitors and visitors the option of taking advantage of the fast and efficient public transportation that Düsseldorf and neighboring areas have to offer. Your exhibitor passes are valid two days before, during, and two days after the corresponding trade fair - and your visitor passes are valid on the day you visit the trade fair. These entrance passes double as your ticket for travel to and from the trade show within Düsseldorf's fast and efficient regional public transportation network.

Taking the Subway to the Fairgrounds
Both the U78 and U79 subway tram lines will get you to the fairgrounds. The U78 line stops at our East (Messe Ost) and North (Messe Nord) Entrances. The U79 stops at the East Entrance (Messe Ost).

Taking the Bus to the Fairgrounds
Bus 896 makes regular trips between the Düsseldorf International Airport and the fairgrounds North Entrance. Buss 722 operates between the Düsseldorf train station and the Fairgrounds south entrance near the administration buildings.

Even if your hotel is not in the city of Düsseldorf itself, visitors of our trade fairs may take the subway, tram, bus, or regional train (2nd class), throughout the entire VRR (and depending on the show, VRS) zones between the fair and the hotel at no additional cost. The Rheinbahn public transport network covers 1,400 km extended over a variety of neighboring cities. It's highly likely that there is a stop within a short distance of where you are staying.

Dusseldorf has a very convenient transportation system. It's wonderful that your show entrance ticket works as a free pass on the public transport trains. Also, that the trains pull right into the show hall is very convenient on a rainy day. I've enjoyed taking the trains at the last few EUROSHOP shows.
