By Public Transport

The fastest way to Messe Stuttgart

In 27 minutes to the trade fair center on a direct connection – two city train lines (S-Bahn) S2 and S3 offer the fastest way to get from Stuttgart Main Station to Airport and Fair. The stop is only 200m away (or an 8 minutes' walk) from the entrance to the trade fair centre.  

Almost as quick are visitors who take the tram line U6 that terminates right at the Messepiazza (a 6-minute’s walk from the Entrance East) with an additional trade fair stop at the Entrance West.

Find more information at Stuttgart’s public transport association (VVS).

In addition, you can arrive by bus at the Stuttgart Airport Bus Terminal for regional and long-distance busses.

Find more information here on the local bus lines.


The Baden-Württemberg-Ticket allows you to travel comfortably to Messe Stuttgart alone or in a group of up to 5 persons. Valid for one day, it covers an unlimited number of trips in all regional and local trains as well as trams, city trains and busses of all public transport associations in (all of) Baden-Württemberg. The price varies according to the number of travellers.

Taxi and sharing services

You can find taxi ranks, as well as VIP and shuttle bus access right in front of the entrances to the trade fair center and the ICS.

If you want to create your own made-to-measure travel solution, you can choose from a wide range of car-sharing providers and rental bikes on site.
