    Journey and stay.

By car.

The IAA parking spaces are signposted as you approach the fairgrounds. The police direct the traffic dynamically depending on how full the approach roads and car parks are. So it makes sense not to approach the fairgrounds and car parks independently or using your own navigation system. Please observe the IAA signs and obey the instructions of the organising staff.

Please note: The IAA visitor car parks are outside the environmentally protected zone and can therefore be used without an emission sticker (exception: Gleisdreieck car park).

Electric vehicles can be recharged at no fee in the Rebstock multi-storey car park – you only pay the parking fee (type 2 connections). As the number of parking spaces is limited, we ask you to book in good time via

By train.

You can reach the IAA from Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof on foot (approx. 15 min.), by taxi or by public transport. The Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V.

The price of a single ticket in all long-distance trains is € 49.50 / € 79.50 for a specific train and € 69.50 / € 99.50 valid for all trains.
