Our special parking places for persons with disabilities are in the direct vicinity of our East, South and West Entrances.
Please present your parking pass for persons with disabilities or your pass for the severely disabled. Our traffic wardens will be pleased to direct you to a special parking space.
Please also note that not all entrances are open for all trade fairs.
Our trade-fair-related Web pages will tell you which entrances are available for which event.
Please go to parking space P1 for the East Entrance.
For the South and West Entrances you will find special parking spaces in the underground car park P6 A and in car park P5.
Underground line 11 takes you straight from the Essen main railway station to the following entrances: Messe Ost/Gruga (East Entrance) or Messe Süd/West (South and West Entrances).
We recommend that you take the West Entrance. A ramp takes you from the platform at that station towards the West Entrance, which is approx. 160 m away.
From there it is approx. 270 m to the South Entrance and approx. 700 m to the East Entrance.
A lift is currently being constructed at the underground station “Eingang Ost” (East Entrance) which will probably be completed by the end of 2012.
