ARRIVAL BY CAR

Current traffic information can be found via Google Maps.

A96

Due to construction work on the A96 in both directions between the border crossing at Lindau and the Weißensberg interchange, and furthermore on the B31 near Eriskirch, traffic congestion is expected in these areas. We therefore recommend that visitors arriving from the north exit at the Wangen West interchange, take the B32 to Ravensburg, and then continue on the B30 on to Friedrichshafen. They should return home along this same route. In general, signposted secondary roads leading to Messe Friedrichshafen are a good alternative to avoid congestion. 

 

Parking at the exhibition centre

Our traffic guidance system will indicate the available parking for individual events. Please follow the signs.

 

Parking spaces directly in the exhibition centre grounds are available to both exhibitors and visitors and they tend to fill up quickly.

 

Park & Ride parking spaces

Park & Ride car park P7 is in the immediate vicinity of the exhibition centre and is linked with it by a free shuttle service that operates all day. You can also reach the exhibition centre quickly from here by bicycle or on foot.

 

Visitors coming from the direction of Meersburg are advised to use the Zeppelin multi-storey car park to save time when arriving and departing.
