What’s the best way to get to bauma?

Over 3,400 exhibitors and more than half a million visitors: That’s what we are expecting at this year’s bauma, the world’s largest trade show, which takes place in Munich from April 11 to 17, 2016. These numbers also spell pressure on the roads around the Messe München exhibition center and on the local public transport system. To ensure your journey here is as trouble-free as possible, we at Messe München are offering a number of services.
From the airport to the exhibition center
A regular shuttle bus service runs from Terminals 1 and 2 at Munich Airport direct to the North Entrance of Messe München. During bauma these buses operate on a 15-minute schedule. Once you arrive at the North Entrance, you can then take the on-site shuttle bus connecting up to all the other entrances to bauma.
By local urban rail (U-Bahn and S-Bahn) to bauma
The best way to avoid any traffic jams is to travel on local public transport. Line U2 on the underground system (U-Bahn) takes you from Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) to the exhibition center in less than 20 minutes. At peak times during bauma trains on the U2 line depart every three minutes for the two underground stations serving the Messe München exhibition center, i.e. to “Messestadt West”, at the western end of the center, and “Messestadt Ost”, at the eastern end.
bauma can also be reached by the city’s urban railway system, the S-Bahn, and bus. The S2 line takes you to the stop called “Riem”. From there it´s about a 15-minute walk to the West Entrance at the exhibition center. Alternatively, you can get bus no. 190 from “Riem” station to “Messestadt West”. Another option is to take the S4 to “Trudering” station, and then change to the U2 underground line to get to “Messestadt Ost”.
Arriving by car
You have a choice of autobahn exits when coming to the exhibition center. These are: A94—Exit 4, “Am Moosfeld”; A94—Exit 5, “München-Riem”; A94—Exit 6, “Feldkirchen-West”; and A99—Exit 15, “Kirchheim”, then continue on road no. 2082. A modern traffic-routing system guides you to the free parking spaces. Important note: As you approach the exhibition center, please follow these electronic signs, which give the latest information. Do not rely on your navigation system.
Where to park?
In addition to the parking spaces at the exhibition center, Messe München is also offering free decentralized parking spaces during bauma—these are in Aschheim and Feldkirchen. On Saturday, 16 April, additional capacity will be available at the MOC multistory car park, and on both Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17, the BMW Parkhaus FIZ am Hart (a multistory car park) will also be available for use, free of charge.
From the car parks in Feldkirchen (2,200 spaces) and Aschheim (2,500 spaces) and at the MOC (1,200 spaces) there is a free shuttle bus service to the exhibition center. The journey time is between ten minutes (Feldkirchen and Aschheim) and approx. 20 minutes (MOC). From the BMW Parkhaus FIZ am Hart it takes about 30 minutes by underground railway (U2 line).
You can, of course, park next to or close to the exhibition center itself. Here, however, there is a charge for parking and these spaces fill up quickly. Parking is not permitted in spaces not designated as bauma car parks.
