App as mobile fair guide, All ways lead to Frankfurt: getting to the fairground

Planning the journey to and from Frankfurt, buying tickets, finding the right exhibitors – intensive preparations are vital for business success at the fair. Mindful of this, Messe Frankfurt offers Techtextil and Texprocess visitors a variety of useful services to help them make the most efficient use of their time there.

Online tickets – save money and avoid waiting times
Online tickets are advantageous in many respects. For example, admission tickets purchased in the Online Ticket Shop are sold at the lower advance-booking price. Thus, a day ticket costs € 25 instead of € 35 and a season ticket € 44 instead of € 64. Online, voucher holders can exchange their vouchers for admission tickets and print them out without leaving their desks, which also saves having to queue at the box office on arrival. And all admission tickets entitle the holder to visit both fairs. Practical: tickets purchased or redeemed online include free travel to and from the fair using local public-transport services operated by the RMV public-transport authority in Frankfurt and the region.

Always up to date with the Techtextil and Texprocess apps
The free ‘Techtextil Navigator’ and ‘Texprocess Navigator’ apps are not only orientation aids at the fair but also a great help when it comes to preparing for the visit. They have an exhibitor search engine, hall plans with integrated wish list and a calendar of events. In addition to these functions, the apps conjoin news from the Techtextil and Texprocess social-media channels, new reports from the trade-fair blogs and recent press releases. The apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. During Techtextil and Texprocess, visitors can also take advantage of the free WiFi, which is available throughout the Exhibition Centre.

Getting to the fair
Whether by local public transport, long-distance trains, car or plane, Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre is easy to reach thanks to its central location. Once there, a free shuttle-bus service takes visitors to the halls of their choice. During Techtextil and Texprocess, the Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage, Hall 3, Torhaus and Portalhaus entrances will be open. Please note that the City entrance (Festhalle) will be closed throughout the two fairs. Visitors who come by the U4 underground line should use the Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage entrance at the Congress Centre.

By train
Travel the inexpensive and environmentally friendly way to Techtextil and Texprocess – by train. In cooperation with German Rail (DB), Techtextil and Texprocess offer special conditions for your journey to Frankfurt. No matter whether you choose the complete package with railway ticket, fair admission ticket and catalogue or the reduced-price DB Event Ticket – your journey on the DB long-distance trains will be powered by 100 % green electricity.

By car
For visitors who travel by car, the ‘Rebstock’ multi-storey car park is the best option. From the car park, free shuttle buses run straight to Portalhaus entrance and back. Additionally, the car park has charging points for electric vehicles fitted with a Type 2 connector. Because the number of spaces is limited, visitors wanting to use one should register in advance by sending an email to

By plane
The Lufthansa Group offers special fares to Frankfurt for Techtextil and Texprocess visitors and exhibitors with reductions of up to ten percent on the standard air fare and other special conditions. In cooperation with the airport operator, Fraport AG, Messe Frankfurt also offers a ‘Gate to Door’ service: a chauffeur-driven limousine from the airport to the fair. Naturally, you can also use the ‘Door to Gate’ service for the way back to the airport.

Stress-free travel – baggage service during Techtextil and Texprocess
Messe Frankfurt offers a baggage service for exhibitors and visitors who can thus concentrate on the essential aspects of their time in Frankfurt, e.g., get on with business appointments or take a sight-seeing tour of the city after the fair closes for the day.

There is a fee for this service, which can be booked online or at Techtextil and Texprocess.
