Travel and accommodation

Thanks to its location between the airport and motorway, the Messe Stuttgart has an incomparable traffic infrastructure. Direct connections to the A8 motorway, the B27 trunk road, the airport, the S-Bahn (rapid-transit railway) and, in future, the planned railway station for local and long-distance trains will ensure that visitors and exhibitors will be able to travel quickly and easily to the Trade Fair Centre. The journey times to a large number of hotels are also surprisingly short. Stuttgart city centre can be reached in around 20 minutes by S-Bahn (rapid-transit railway).

Emissions stickers

Since 2008 driving bans have been imposed for certain vehicles in zones with high amounts of particulate matter. The zones are marked by the traffic sign "Umweltzone" (environmental zone). There is an environmental zone also in Stuttgart since 1 March 2008. It covers the entire city zone.As Messe Stuttgart is located outside the Stuttgart city zone, you do not need an emissions sticker for a visit to the trade fair centre or congress center. Please note, however, that an emissions sticker is required for a subsequent visit to the city or if staying overnight in the city zone.


IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING ACCOMMODATION: There will be many other events parallel to f-cell in Stuttgart. Please book your hotelroom asap.
