Arriving by plane

If you’re flying into Frankfurt Airport, you can catch a train to the central station, and switch to tram 16 (direction Ginheim) or 17 (direction Rebstockbad) or U-Bahn no. 4 (direction Bockenheimer Warte), which you can catch outside the central station.

Your stop will be Festhalle/ Messe. From there, proceed to “Eingang Tor Ost” (East Gate).

Please avoid using the S-Bahn as you’ll have quite a way to walk to the conference center from the train stop!

Arriving by train

If you are relying on Deutsche Bahn to get to Messe Frankfurt, use the tram line mentioned above in “Ariving by plane” once you get to Frankfurt central station.

Arriving by car

It is possible to reach Messe Frankfurt via the Autobahn or through the city of Frankfurt. You’ll just need to follow the overhead signs leading to Messe Frankfurt. Simply enter "Katharinenkreisel" as your final destination into the navigation system or use this google map and follow the signs to Gate North in order to get to the parking space on the exhibition grounds.

Parking spots are available in lots P3, which cost 17 EUR, including VAT, per day or 51 EUR, including VAT, for the duration of the event.

ISC Workshops

Trams no. 16 (direction Ginnheim) or 17 (direction Rebstockbad) from the Frankfurt central station also stop in front of the Marriott Hotel. Your stop will be Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage (one stop after Festhalle / Messe).

There is also a large shopping mall very close by, offering a supermarket, a pharmacy, an electronic store, various shops, a food court and a cozy rooftop restaurant.

One-Day Tourism

Frankfurt Old Town

Römerberg is the most beautiful square in Frankfurt’s Altstadt (Old Town) and it is the first stop for many visitors. It is filled with architecture dating back from the medieval era to modern times. It is also home to an array of markets, fairs, tournaments and festivals. This is the perfect spot to buy souvenirs, visit cafes and restaurants. 


Rüdesheim am Rhein

We understand that you’re predominately here for the conference. However, it would be a shame to miss out on the scenic views of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main, and the Rhine valley which is home to many local vineyards. For a rundown of available boat tours, please click here.


Rüdesheim am Rhein is a picturesque winemaking town which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can get there easily via train in less than 1 ½ hours. Trains depart from the Frankfurt central station every 30 minutes or so.



Visa for Germany

If you need a visa to enter Germany, you might want to do that in advance, as it takes about several weeks/months for the German embassy or consulate to process your application.  Please check the website of the Federal Foreign Office to find out if you require a visa to enter Germany.

As a rule, visa applicants must appear in person at the embassy or consulate responsible for their place of residence to submit their application, supported by all necessary documents.

Visa application forms can be obtained from the embassy or consulate free of charge (in the local language). Please consult the local German embassy or consulate for more information.

Invitation Letter for Visa Applications

As we are only able to generate invitation letters for visa application through the registration site, it is important that you complete the online registration process to obtain your letter.
