From 08:00 – 18:00 shuttle busses travelling to the exhibition grounds depart from the airport every 15-20 minutes. From 9:30-19:00 the shuttle busses run every 20 minutes from the exhibition grounds to the airport. Note: These times are provisional - please refer to the specific information about shuttle bus service during the show.

Taxis from the airport to the Trade Fair Centre cost an agreed fixed rate of €63.00 (US$70.00).

Rental cars are available at Munich airport from Avis, Europcar, Hertz, National/Alamo and Sixt. Service counters and pick-up/drop-off points are located in Terminal 1.

Munich is also well served by rail and road networks.

Bauma’s popularity means hotel rooms are hard to come by in Munich during the show, and visitors can expect to pay as much as five to ten times the normal advertised rate for a room.

Munich Metro
The Bauma exhibition is served by the U2 underground metro line, part of Munich’s extensive public transport network.

The Messestadt West station is at the main entrance to the trade fair and is convenient for the lower numbered exhibitions halls (A1 to A3, B0 to B3, C1 – C3 etc.).

The Messestadt Ost station is more useful for the outside exhibition areas and the higher numbered halls (A4 to A6, B3-6 and C3-6 etc.).

There is also car parking available at the trade fair centre and a steady flow of taxis. But beware, the huge numbers of visitors to Bauma can lead to heavy traffic and delays, particularly at peak times.
