Before starting your journey, tick the day on the weekday strip on your ticket. For online tickets, enter the ticket date and sign your ticket. Please enter the name in the online ticket shop of the visitor who will be using the online ticket. Failure to do so may result in the ticket not being valid for free travel on local public transport.
Please note: Our local transport ticket service is only valid for Leipziger Messe's own events.

Information for Visitors With Reduced Mobility
We strive to ensure that you can reach your destination quickly and unhindered. For this reason, the Leipzig exhibition grounds are designed to be barrier-free and offers short and easy routes. All halls are at ground level and there are no thresholds to restrict your access. You can find out more about accessibility at the grounds of the Leipzig Messe here.
We recommend the following entrances for your visit to the fair:
- If you arrive by car, please use the East entrance
- If arriving by tram, you can get to the fair via the West entrance (Glass Hall).
If you are travelling by train, please be sure to alight at the Hauptbahnhof stop instead of the Leipzig Messe stop. Accessible, low-floor trams run from the main railway station on tram line 16. Continue to the Messegelände tram stop and then follow the signs.
