Travel information

For convenient and fast travel to the EnergyDecentral by car, rail or air

By rail / public transport

Selected regional and long-distance and regional trains (Metronom und erixx) will also include an extra stop directly at the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover/Messe Laatzen. From the train station it's a 5-minute walk to the entrance "West 1".

If you are travelling from Hanover Central Station you can take a suburban train (Stadtbahn), lines 8 or 18. The journey takes 20 minutes. At the Central Station follow the blue signs marked "U". You can also use the suburban train (S-Bahn) lines S 8 and S4 to the Exhibition Grounds (Messebahnhof Laatzen).

The entrance ticket to EnergyDecentral is not a combination ticket for free travel by public transport. However, the Großraum-Verkehr Hannover (GVH) offers tickets for exhibitors and permanent guests from the first to the last day of the fair.

FlixTrain offers also train connections to Hanover. Some train connections take you directly to the fair train station Laatzen or to the Hanover main train station. FlixBus may be a good travel option as well.

Simply download the NUNAV app to your mobile phone for free. Instead of an address, enter ENERGYDECENTRAL 2020. Traffic corridors and individual driving recommendations are transmitted directly via the NUNAV app. Every user of the NUNAV app receives an individual driving recommendation, which is always coordinated with all other road users. This actively prevents traffic jams.
