With this wide offer, planning the trip can be a bit overwhelming – we have put together a list of the most important links and information here.

Some tips for visitors

Open Space or Open Space Extended – where to go first?
For the optimised experience, it’s best to take some time and plan your trip in advance; decide when you want to be at the trade fair grounds, and when best time to visit the city’s open spaces is for you.
News is added to the schedules daily, so keep an eye on the website.

Open Space Extended: All cycling exhibitors are situated in the halls B4, B5 and B6 and  outside, next to the East Entrance. The detailed hall plans can be found HERE.
On the Bike & Micro mobility Stage (B5) und Bike Stage (B6) inside the halls, many brands will present their innovation highlights, and top-level products ranging from new safety support for urban cycling, to extreme lightweight e-bikes, the latest in mountain biking etc.. The schedule can be found online or onsite.
Definitely worth a visit are the Dirt Jump Shows at the ‘’Mercedes-Benz Mountain Bike Experience’’, held 3 times a day at the MTB Test Parcours next to the East Entrance.
For those interested in vintage bikes, there are permanent exhibitions inside the bike halls: A carefully curated selection of vintage road bicycles and a selection of Retro Mountainbikes will be on display.
If you don’t feel like taking public transport, you can take your bike and cycle from and to the city center Open Spaces;  our recommended route between both expo-areas:

Open Space: Bike exhibitors in the city center are situated at Marstallplatz and the Hofgartenstrasse. Test bikes can be taken for a spin through Munich’s famous Englischer Garten. If you want to pin your preferred locations beforehand – check the map here

Blue Lane Bike: If you don’t feel like taking public transport,  you can take your bike from and to the Open Space and the Messe Muenchen trade show grounds, via the sign-posted Blue Lane Bike.
The IAA stands for an accelerated path to the future of mobility. But you can also slow down: ride your bike along the signposted route from Munich-Riem through the districts of Trudering and lively Haidhausen, across the Isar River to romantic Lehel and into the city center. Take a break, experience the city, experience the whole spectrum of the urban IAA in the OPEN SPACE, the public event space of the IAA. The route takes at least one hour to complete.
