Arrival by car

Arrival by carTen highways lead into Cologne's beltway, which guides you directly to the exhibition centre. Simply follow the green signs stating "Koelnmesse". About 14,500 parking spaces are available around the area. Free shuttle buses drive from the car parks to the entrances. Once arriving at the exhibition centre, you will be guided to the appropriate parking spaces by a modern traffic guidance system. The parking spaces are optimally linked to our entrances. You can reach them by foot in a few minutes or by using the complimentary shuttle buses. Parking prices vary between 8.00 and 10.00 EUR per day.

Environmental zone

Since 2012, most of Cologne's city centre area is a low emission zone, into which only vehicles with a permit for emission groups 2 – 4 are allowed to enter.

The exhibition centre Cologne is accessible for all types of vehicles, even if they do not bear one of the aforementioned permits.
