Important travel information during the rail strike: Alternative options for a convenient arrival

Due to the rail strike from 24 to 29 January 2024, there may be irregularities and partial cancellations on long-distance trains, regional trains and suburban trains in Germany. Please check whether your connection is running as planned before travelling. You can find the current status of the connections on the Deutsche Bahn website.

Thanks to the excellent infrastructure, there are numerous other travel options available to you in addition to the Deutsche Bahn services: you can reach Frankfurt with alternative rail providers (e.g. Vias, HLB, Flixtrain or long-distance buses) as well as with the help of flight connections (FRA) from all over the world. With its central location, Frankfurt is also easy to reach by car.
Once you arrive in Frankfurt, you can reach the fairgrounds in only a few minutes by underground, tram, car or shuttle bus. You can find all the latest information on our website under "arrival and stay".
Travelling to the exhibition center:
The S-Bahn lines S3, S4 and S5 will continue to run to the "Frankfurt Messe" S-Bahn station. However, due to the strike there may be delays and partial cancellations.
