Travel information

Kap Europa

Kap Europa Conference Centre is located within the Europa district. Only a few steps from Messe Frankfurt, it is right next to the Skyline Plaza Shopping Centre and a variety of great hotels.

The amazingly central location with immediate access to public transport makes arriving and leaving a breeze: Kap Europa in Frankfurt is only ten minutes from the Main Station by foot, minutes from Frankfurt City by metros and trams and approximately 15 minutes from Frankfurt Airport, the international transport hub – by taxi or train.

Short distances help meeting one of Kap Europa Conference Centre’s main ambitions: Lower CO2 emissions.

To reach the Messe Frankfurt congress building, take an autobahn exit marked “Messe Frankfurt”. Once you get to Frankfurt city centre, follow the signs for “Congress Center” and “Kap Europa”.
