Be aware of the Environmental Zone:
The Environmental Zone is the area within the so-called S-Bahn ring, the light railway line encircling central Berlin. Vehicles may only enter this area if they display a valid sticker showing that their emissions do not exceed a specified level of fine particulates. Road signs clearly indicate where this Environmental Zone begins. Although the southern section of the city expressway, the Stadtautobahn, is within the S-Bahn ring, it is not classified as part of the Environmental Zone because it is also used to enable vehicles to drive around the restricted area. The CityCube is located outside the Environmental Zone. Visitors arriving by car via the motorway system and entering the Exhibition Grounds directly via the interchange marked “Messegelände/Messedamm” are outside the zone and do not therefore require a sticker.

There are taxi ranks, underground/light rail stations and bus stops next to the entrances fo the whole Messe Berlin grounds. Berlin’s public transport system will take you swiftly and in comfort to any destination.
