By train

Reach your destination quickly and easily

Travellers to trade fairs and conferences benefit from Stuttgart’s integration in the high-speed ICE network. There are direct connections to and from many national and international destinations. The journey from Paris or Zurich to Baden-Württemberg’s capital takes just three hours.

Messe Stuttgart and the Airport will be connected to the regional and long-distance railway network as part of the Stuttgart-Ulm railway construction project. The new ICE rapid train station is being built on the Messepiazza right in front of the main trade fair Entrance East. This new link will save travel time and offer you more direct connections by rail.

Building-site tours

The Stuttgart-Ulm railway construction project now offers building-site tours at the new traffic hub Airport & Fair. Fitted-out with helmet, rubber-boots and safety waistcoat you start on a three-hour discovery tour. Learn all about the new station and the high-speed rail line as part of the Stuttgart 21 project.

Find more information and the registration form for a tour of the building-site on the Stuttgart-Ulm Railway project website (in German, but tours are offered in English as well).
