Via two motorway exits it provides direct access to the venue,
and it connects the venue with the Airport within 15 minutes. The A 38 motorway starts in Leipzig and reaches to Göttingen. The B2 Federal Road is a powerful connection between the venue and the city centre where most of the hotels and attractions are located. It is a drive of approx. 15 minutes.
