We hope that our directions enable you to enjoy a comfortable journey to this year's Annual General Meeting at the Grugahalle on Norbertstraße 2, 45131 Essen, Germany.
The doors open at 8:00 a.m. (the event officially starts at 10:00 a.m.). We ask of your understanding for the security precautions we have taken in the entrance area.
Tips for visitors arriving by public transportation
The station stop “Messe Ost/Gruga” (U11 subway line) is located opposite the main entrance. The admission ticket does not entitle the free use of VRR-transport.
Tips for visitors arriving by car
The Grugahalle has a limited number of parking spaces. You can use the P1 and P2 lots free of charge. We have organised a shuttle service from the P2 lot for the entire day. People arriving by car will find the (free) parking lots by following the signs to “Grugahalle/P1+2” from the A 52
• from Düsseldorf after taking the E-Bredeney or E-Rüttenscheid exit,
• from Dortmund/Bochum after taking the E-Rüttenscheid exit, or
• from the B224 towards “Messe/Gruga.”
