By car

Quick, convenient travel

The A8 motorway (east-west connection) runs right alongside the trade fair grounds. Multiple exits make for rapid arrivals and departures. After a short drive, travelers also have access to the north-south axis of the A81.

Please note
Stuttgart city is an environmental zone. Only vehicles displaying a green sticker are permitted within this zone. Because Messe Stuttgart is outside the city precincts, you do not need an environmental sticker when you visit a trade fair or conference. If you plan to visit the city afterwards or stay in the city overnight, you will require an emissions sticker for your vehicle.

More information about the emissions sticker.


Charging stations on the grounds

There are three EnBW charging stations in front of Entrance East. Electric cars and electrically powered two-wheelers (e.g. e-bikes, pedelecs) can be charged here in virtually no time. Site overview (PDF, 900 KB)

More charging points are available at the neighbouring airport. More information.

Please note that demand for the charging stations at our grounds is high, and it may not always be possible to charge vehicles.

Park + Ride

A cost-effective alternative to parking at the trade fair premises are the P+R car parks in Stuttgart and the surrounding districts. In the area of the VVS (Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund Stuttgart), visitors can leave their vehicle at one of more than 200 P+R facilities and travel on by public transport in a relaxed manner. Especially convenient: our CombiTicket with vvs imprint entitles you to free use of public transport in the entire VVS network.

Further information on the P+R service and an overview of all parking spaces can be found on the VVS website (available in German only).
