Your Way to HANNOVER MESSE
Tips and information to make your trip to HANNOVER MESSE quick and easy, wether you're travelling by rail, air or car.
Deutsche Messe is conducting security checks at all entrances. This involves examining the contents of all luggage, e.g. handbags, backpacks, trolleys, suitcases, attaché cases and any other bags and containers.
Please accept our apologies for any delays this might cause, particularly during peak periods.
This measure is designed to ensure the safety and security of everyone involved, and applies to all trade fairs staged at the Hannover Exhibition Center.
Travel by car
Recommended navigation system:
For the first time, an individual navigation aid via app is available for cars. Traffic corridors and individual driving recommendations are transmitted directly via the NUNAV app.
Every user of the NUNAV app receives an individual driving recommendation, which is always coordinated with all other road users. This actively prevents traffic jams.
Navigation aid for bus companies
Please use the recommended navigation system! Download the NUNAV App on to HANNOVER MESSE 2020. Information about traffic corridors and individual routing recommendations can now be transmitted directly to bus companies via the NUNAV Bus app.
Using navigation systems:
Please enter "Kronsbergstrasse" as destination if you are travelling from the south, and "Hermesallee" if you are travelling from the north.
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.
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 .
Please make your reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at: +49 511 8933595.
Users of the NUNAV and NUNAV Bus apps can retrieve individual routing recommendations that are being constantly updated in line with the current traffic situation. This is an active traffic jam prevention scheme.
