How to get here

Selected regional and long-distance and regional trains will also include an extra stop directly at the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover/Messe Laatzen. From the train station it's a 5-minute walk to the entrance "West 1".

The timetables with direct connections will be announced by the respective transport companies in good time before the fair.

FlixTrain offers also train connections to Hanover. Some train connections take you directly to the fair train station Laatzen or to the Hanover main train station. FlixBus may be a good travel option as well.

Local public transport in Hanover

If you are travelling from Hanover Central Station you can take a suburban train (Stadtbahn), line 8. The journey takes 20 minutes. At the Central Station follow the blue signs marked "U". You can also use the suburban train (S-Bahn) line S4 to the Exhibition Grounds (Messebahnhof Laatzen).

If you are using your standard navigation system despite this, please switch it off when you are close to the Fairgrounds and follow the signs.

Parking Lots

A number of different parking lots are available for visitors.

Environmental Emission Zone

In order to improve the air quality and reduce fine dust contamination levels, Hanover has introduced signposted official emission zones. Only vehicles carrying an official permit (disc-shaped sticker) are allowed to drive in these zones. The Exhibition Grounds are located outside Hanover’s emission zone. However, as of 1 January 2009 a green official permit is necessary to drive in large parts of the city.

More detailed information about emission zones and official permits can be found on the website of TÜV-Nord. You can order your official permit online there or buy one at any TÜV station or motor vehicle registration point.


Deutsche Messe's campground is a cost-effective alternative for your overnight stays.
Find details about the campground, see here .

Important information for visitors and exhibitors from visa-required countries:

  • A visitor visa for attending the trade show should be applied for no earlier than six months and no later than four weeks before the start of your journey. However, in many cases, the responsible German embassy or consulate will take longer than four weeks to process the application and issue a visa. Please plan accordingly.
  • Information on the visa procedure, requirements for issuance, visa fees, and application forms can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office as well as on the websites of the respective embassies and consulates in your home country.
  • Since 2013, the Federal Foreign Office has informed visa offices of German embassies and consulates worldwide that, in general, no invitation letter from the trade fair organizer is required to apply for a trade fair visa for both visitors and exhibitors (see: AUMA website). Please refer to this information when applying for your visa, if necessary.
  • DLG Service GmbH, as the organizer of the trade fair, assumes no legal and/or financial responsibility in connection with your visit to the fair. For this reason, general invitation letters from the trade fair organizer are usually not helpful. This is in contrast to business trips, for which a specific German business partner might coordinate and finance your trip.
  • Exhibitors usually require a confirmation of their paid stand registration instead of an invitation letter, and in many cases they also do not have to pay the visa fee (see website of the Federal Foreign Office).

Selected Hotels

The criteria for the new Messe Selected Hotel Program were developed in cooperation between Deutsche Messe AG and DEHOGA Region Hannover e.V. in order to further increase the attractiveness of Hannover as a trade fair location and to provide exhibitors and visitors with planning security, professional service and balanced offers, even in times of high demand for hotel rooms.Messe Selected Hotels are selected hotel companies that commit themselves to fair conditions and ensure a high quality of stay.

The criteria for Messe Selected Hotels are set for three years at a time and only hotels that accept these criteria are allowed to operate under the name "Messe Selected Hotel".

We recommend that our exhibitors and visitors book directly with the hotel or book through the accommodation service of Hannover Marketing und Tourismus GmbH.

Get more information about the criteria of the Messe Selected Hotels. Select your Messe Selected Hotel according to the hotel categories.
