The U2 underground line (Direction Röthenbach) brings you from the airport to the main train station. The U1 underground line (Direction Langwasser Süd) then takes you from the main station directly to the exhibition centre’s entrance (Eingang West). Including the change at the main station, this journey takes around 25-30 minutes.
