Here you will find information regarding the travel to and arrival at the EXPO 2000 in Hanover. The information source is partially unknown, otherwise the author will be noted. Most facts are extracted from the EXPO Journal of the HAZ (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung). You will get a larger picture by clicking on a thumbnail.

Die Bahn (DB): If you have sold a ticket at the german railway "Die Bahn" (DB-Voucher), you MUST go to the normal counter (NOT to the red EVENT-counter!) for changing the voucher to a reguar ticket for the EXPO. AND you can do this only at the day the voucher is dated, NOT on the day before! Attention: In the early morning you have to wait, because a lot of people are waiting!

If you are looking for a street or place in Hannover, there is a link to, they have an overview and a street catalogue available. At this URL you will find maps of Germany and Niedersachsen (area around Hanover). Also a map of the exhibition area exists.

If you are staying directly in Hanover during your visit, you should use the streetcar/tram (Stadtbahn) of the Uestra ( for reaching the EXPO. Tickets: All EXPO-Tickets are also valid as tickets for arrival and departure to/from EXPO for all connections of the GVH (Großraumverkehr Hannover), which is separated into three zones. If you want to use buses or streetcars/tram not related to your visit to the EXPO you have to buy a normal ticket.

The trams Stadtbahn-Linien 1 and 2 stop close to the railway station Laatzen/Eichstraße near EXPO 2000 west.
Attention: These lines are not recommended for visiting the EXPO 2000, because the distance between stop and EXPO entrance is too long!
