Visitors arriving by car
From the A10 (Berliner Ring) take the A100, A111 or A115 to the Funkturm interchange (Autobahndreieck Funkturm). Look for the exit sign ‘Abfahrt Messedamm’. Parking is available at the Olympic Stadium. From here a free shuttle service will take you directly to the North and South entrances to the exhibition grounds. The exhibition grounds are located outside the Environment Zone. Car drivers arriving on the autobahn and heading directly to the exhibition grounds from the Messegelände/Messedamm exits are outside the zone and therefore do not need to obtain the requisite windscreen sticker.
Visitors arriving by public transport
S-Bahn (light rail system) S5 to Messe Süd station; S-Bahn S5, S7 to Westkreuz station; S-Bahn S41, S42, S46 to Messe Nord station; U-Bahn (underground) U2 to the stations at Kaiserdamm or Theodor-Heuss-Platz; bus routes 104, 139, 349, M49, X34, X49 to Messedamm/ZOB (Main Bus Station).
