Arrival by car

We recommend to use the Underground Car Park East (Bei den Kirchhöfen). It is directly next to Messe East Entrance (main entrance of the ITS World Congress). Detailed information on the individual parking options you will find here. As not all parking spaces are permanently available and to avoid traffic jams at peak times, we recommend using public transport of the Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV).

The modern airport is located around 10 km from the Hamburg Messe in the northern district of Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel. The best flight connections can be found on the Hamburg Airport website. The terminals at Hamburg Airport have direct connections to the route network of the Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV).
