Messe Frankfurt or Frankfurt Trade Fair is the main exhibition centre in Frankfurt am Main Germany (see best areas). It’s the third-largest trade fair in the world.
It is located in the Bockenheim and Westend-South districts in the west of the city. Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (central train station) is only a few minutes away from the grounds.
Travelling to and from the trade fair and exhibition grounds can be a bit cumbersome during high tourist seasons and travellers are encouraged to make use of public transport.
Taxis are available, however, come in a bit pricier and are not always able to access the entrances to the trade fair or exhibitions grounds from a reasonable distance. A fair amount of walking is to be expected in the Messe, with plenty of refreshment stops along the way.
Other main exhibition grounds in Germany include the Koln Messe, Dusseldorf Messe and Hannover trade fair centre.
Address — Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1 60327 Frankfurt am Main
Air Connections — Frankfurt Exhibition Centre is served by Frankfurt’s international airport. The connection to the Messe trade fair complex leaves from the regional station, platform 1, train service S8 or S9 (direction Frankfurt Hbf., Offenbach or Hanau) to the Frankfurter Hauptbahnhof/ main railway station.
Then change to the underground level to catch the S-Bahn service S3, S4, S5 or S6, usually from platform 104, which will take you directly to the ‘Frankfurt Messe’ stop next to the entrance of the Messe complex.
Or you can take the underground service U4 from the Hauptbahnhof (direction Bockenheimer Warte) to the ‘Festhalle/Messe’ stop.
