Arriving with the public local transit (Öffentlicher Personennahverkehr - ÖPNV)
The quick and easy way from Leipzig's city centre to Leipziger Messe
Directly from the main train station, tram line 16 of the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe will take you to the exhibition grounds in around 18 minutes. Travel time from the Augustusplatz is about 23 minutes - with line 16 and no transfers. Travel towards the direction of "Messegelände" (final stop).
The trains will take you almost to the West entrance at the front of the Glass Hall and the entrance to the Congress Center Leipzig. You can enjoy the way along the Messesee between the exhibition forecourt with the tram loop to the West entrance.
With the regional train (Regionalbahn/DB) and the rapid transit lines (S-Bahn/MDV)
The routes S2, S5, S5X or S6 of the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland (rapid transit railway) take you directly to the Leipzig Messe train station (e.g. from Halle, Altenburg, Zwickau, Geithain, Dessau, Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Bitterfeld). The S-Bahn routes S5 and S5x also take visitors from the Leipzig/Halle airport to the trade fair grounds in just a few minutes. At Leipzig's main train station and at the City Tunnel stations of the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland, travellers from all other directions can also access the routes S2, S5, S5X or S6 to the trade fair. Driving time from Leipzig's main train station: 6 minutes, from Leipzig's market place: 8 minutes. Driving time from Halle's main train station: 17 minutes. The distance between the exhibition train station and the exhibition grounds is approximately 750 metres. From "Leipzig Messe" train station, it is only a ten-minute walk to the West entrance (Glass Hall) or the Congress Center Leipzig. Or go another station with tram line 16, which stops directly at this station, to the final stop "Messegelände".
Those arriving at Leipzig/Halle airport can reach the exhibition grounds with the S 5 and S5X in around eight minutes (leaves every 30 minutes).
