Arriving by car
There are ten motorways that empty into the beltway that surrounds Cologne. From there, the route to the trade fair complex is a direct one. Simply follow the green signs marked ‘Koelnmesse’. For the smart route, we recommend NUNAV Navigation, the Koelnmesse app.
Please follow the signs to the car parks designated for use by exhibitors and visitors. The car parks offer ideal connections to our entrances. NUNAV will guide you straight to a free parking space nearby. If your parking space is located on the trade fair grounds, please activate Bluetooth on your smartphone, as this permits trouble-free driving on site.

Most of Cologne’s metrolpolitan area is a low emission zone. Vehicles entering this zone must carry a green sticker (emission group 4). The entrance to Koelnmesse, however, is also secured for all vehicles without stickers. Please find the entrance route without sticker in the arrival map (.pdf) .
Trade fair participants from Germany and abroad with the correspondingly equipped vehicles can receive the environmental stickers from www.umwelt-plakette.de (only in German language).
