How to get there
IFEMA is connected with the orbital highways around Madrid: M 11 (Exits 5 & 7), M 40 (Exits 5, 6 & 7), and A2 (Exit 7). The southern, northern and eastern entrances to the fairgrounds allow direct access to the parking lots.
Line 8, Campo de Naciones station, takes visitors directly to IFEMA. However, NOTA BENE: Line 8 is under renovation these days. So take other means of transport.
Line 112 – Line begins at Mar de Cristal; get off at Avda. Partenon-Campo de Naciones
Línea 122 – Line begins at Avda. de América Underground Bus Terminal; get off at Campo de las Naciones–Feria de Madrid (Avda. Partenon). This is your best bet if you’re coming from central Madrid.
Línea 828 – Universidad Autónoma–Alcobendas–Canillejas; get off at Avda. Partenon 12-Feria de Madrid
