Directions & Accommodation

Whether you are a speaker, participant or exhibitor - everyone is always looking for the shortest way to get there. We are happy to help you. For example, with our guidance system, which navigates you through the entire city to Messe Bremen. This gives you more time on site at the event.
  • Comfortably to MESSE BREMEN with 3 bus lines: Bus line 24 (stop "Blumenthalstraße"), bus lines 26 and 27 (stop "Messe Centrum")
  • Also by tram: with line 5 (stop "Messe-Zentrum") and lines 6 and 8 (stop "Blumenthalstraße")
  • Further information is available on the Website of the BSAG.

  • Quick connection to the A1, A27, A28.
  • It takes only 10 minutes from the freeway exit to the open-air grounds in front of MESSE BREMEN with 2,500 parking spaces.
  • From the freeway exits, simply follow the signs to "Centrum / Messe Bremen".
  • Due to the fair “Freimarkt” taking place during ITHEC right next to the Congress Center Bremen there will be no parking facilities on the public parking space “Bürgerweide”. Only limited parking facilities will be available in the car park 'MESSE BREMEN' next to the Congress Center.
  • For the multi-storey car park please enter "Hollerallee 99, 28215 Bremen" into your navigation system. For more information, on parking fees please visit the BREPARK Website
  • Bremen Airport is only about 7 kilometers away from MESSE BREMEN and the city center. The tram station is located directly in front of the airport and with line 6 (direction "Universität") you can reach the exhibition grounds (stop "Blumenthalstraße") in about 18 minutes.
  • The airport is connected to all major hubs and airports in Germany and Europe. Details on thewebsite of Bremen Airport.
  • A drop off area for taxis is available in front of the halls or a cab stand at the north exit of the main station.
