Discover the trade fair city Nuremberg

The trade fair venue Nuremberg

Nuremberg enjoys a high national and international reputation as a trade fair and congress location. As an exhibition and congress venue, Nuremberg is one of the top locations in Europe. In addition to the city' s top transport connections, excellent infrastructure and wide range of event venues and hotels, Nuremberg also scores points for its high level of innovation and quality of service. 

The exhibition grounds offer 16 exhibition halls with a total of over 180,000 m² of exhibition space. Since 2014, Hall 3A, designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, has delighted many trade fair participants. In 2018, another architectural highlight was added in the form of Hall 3C, also designed by Hadid, which is also a role model in terms of energy efficiency. So it's no wonder that some leading trade fairs, such as the Spielwarenmesse or BioFach, GalaBau, Embedded World and SPS are at home in Nuremberg.


Enjoy Nuremberg

Every region is proud of its culinary specialities. Most trade fair visitors probably associate Nuremberg gingerbread and the "3 im Weggla" with Nuremberg. But the Nuremberg red beer and the diverse gastronomic landscape also attract participants to the city after a day at the fair.



Whether you prefer international dishes or like trying out local specialities, you will find a wide choice of restaurants in the city centre. Relax after a long day at the fair with a tasty dinner, a glass of wine or a cool beer, and enjoy the hospitality of Nuremberg’s restaurants.
