Frankfurt Fair

Frankfurt is one of Europe’s fastest growing cities, with a burgeoning restaurant and night life scene to satisfy its modern and affluent population. The Trade Fair halls host some of Europe’s largest Trade Fairs, and coupled with the huge amount of blue chip industry in the city this creates a really ‘business focused’ city- fast paced and driven.

Crossgates hotelships are moored on the Nizzawerft Park, a quiet green area of riverside 10 mins walk from the city centre. From here we run free bus transfers to the Fair grounds in the morning and evening. Providing the perfect mix of quiet relaxation away from the Fair, with easy access to all that Frankfurt has to offer.

For larger Fairs we also use moorings in the newly developed Osthaffen ( East Harbour). 10 minutes walk from the ships will find Frankfurt’s young trendy crown enjoying the many new bars and ‘pop-up’ restaurants which populate this new destination.


Public Transport
All public transport is free with your exhibitor or visitor entry ticket to the Fair

Please note cars are not allowed to park on the riverside by the boats. We recommend you use the free bus service provided by Crossgates in the morning and evening. Car parks can be found in the town and at the Fair. You can find some good information here:

The main local taxi company is Taxi Frankfurt, who have set fare prices in line with state regulations:
