More than just a place of arrival: the new Terminal

Koelnmesse 3.0 Terminal

As the new centre of the southern part of the exhibition grounds, the new Terminal will connect the various entrances and halls with one another and at the same time enable the different areas of the exhibition centre to be flexibly used. It will simplify and clarify the centre’s structure, abolishing the need for detours. Shops and catering outlets will make the Terminal an attractive place for people to spend their time. A glazed roof will let light shine into the building unhindered.

The development targets:

  • Structural improvements in the southern section of the exhibition centre
  • Increased flexibility in the use of the halls
  • Roofed-over access to all hall entrances
  • Redesigned entrance area at the street called Deutz-Mülheimer-Straße (current Entrance East)
  • New Entrance West incl. the integration of a new central kitchen
  • Additional congress level on the upper floor that can be used independently of the other areas
