Starters and visitors can use the Metro Line 78. When exiting the Metro station, cross the Arena Street and walk next to the Merkur Arena straight ahead. At the end turn left and you will see the North-East Entrance.

If you are coming by car, please park in the P2 car park. From there it is only a 2 minute walk to the north-east entrance. The P2 cannot be reached via the Merkur Arena, but only via Niederrheinstraße and Stockumer Höfe.

The starting documents will be handed out at the central registration or at the check-in table directly behind the north-east entrance. For the street races, late registrations are possible, as far as seats are available. At the latest one hour before the start of the first race.
