Ten motorways are linked with the motorway ring around Cologne. This leads you directly to the fair grounds without being held up by crossroads or traffic lights. Simply follow the green "Koelnmesse" signs.
There are approximately 14,500 car parking spaces on the fair grounds. The respective trade fair will be displayed to the visitors in the dynamic display field on the signposts. Arrows will show the way to the nearest car park. The car parks are optimally connected to our entrances. You can reach the exhibition halls by foot or using the free shuttle buses.

Most of Cologne’s metrolpolitan area is a low emission zone. Vehicles entering this zone must carry a green sticker (emission group 4). The entrance to Koelnmesse, however, is also secured for all vehicles without stickers. Please find the entrance route without sticker in the arrival map (.pdf) .
Trade fair participants from Germany and abroad with the correspondingly equipped vehicles can receive the environmental stickers from www.umwelt-plakette.de (only in German language).
