Drehkreuze in der Glashalle

West Entrance

Travellers arriving by train, S-Bahn or tram will walk past the Trade Fair building and the Messesee to the west entrance at the front of the imposing Glass Hall. Here you will be greeted by an entrance and reception area with a meeting point and magnolia grove.


You can reach separate events in HALLE:EINS through a dedicated entrance.

East Entrance

The East Entrance Hall offers an architectural counterpoint – a cube with striking columns and a flat roof. This entrance is primarily accessed by car since the car park is located to the rear of the building. The East Entrance is connected to the Glass Hall and the exhibition halls via connecting bridges, the "glass tubes".
