By car

Enter the destination “70629 Stuttgart, Flughafenstrasse/airport” into your navigation device (or “70629 Leinfelden-Echterdingen” in older systems), and then follow the parking directions on site.

As Messe Stuttgart is outside the city limits, you do not require an environmental badge to drive to the conference. However, if you intend to take your vehicle into the city, you will need to acquire the green environmental badge.

From 1 January 2019, vehicles with diesel engines classified as Euro 4 / IV emissions or poorer are forbidden from entering Stuttgart’s environmental zone. Further information can be found at


By rail / public transport

All intercity trains call at Stuttgart’s main rail station. From there, you can take urban rail lines S2 (towards Filderstadt) or S3 (towards the airport/exhibition centre – Flughafen/Messe). The journey takes approx. 30 minutes.

Please note: If you use a BahnCard to purchase a Deutsche Bahn (DB) long-distance ticket to travel to Stuttgart, the “city ticket” component is only valid within the city centre (tariff zone 1), but not for onward travel to the exhibition centre (tariff zone 2).

You will therefore require a ticket for zone 2 to complete your journey from Stuttgart main rail station – single fare € 2.90, or € 6.00 for a day ticket. Alternatively, conference participants with a hotel reservation can purchase a 3-day ticket for € 19.50. For further details, go to (Status: 01.04.2019)
