Building on the previous success of the extra rail services between Austria/southern Germany and the Rhineland area, a special train service is being introduced this year to transport visitors from the Netherlands directly to Agritechnica.
This year, German railway company Deutsche Bahn is running a total of seven special trains to Agritechnica, the world’s leading international exhibition for agricultural machinery and equipment, which will be held at the fairgrounds in Hanover from 10-14 November 2015 (with Preview Days on 8 and 9 November). Building on the previous success of the services from Austria/southern German and the Rhineland region, a new service has been added from the Netherlands in 2015. The special trains offer Agritechnica visitors a comfortable, stress-free and above all affordable travel option. The discounted rate for a first-class day-return ticket includes a day’s admission to the exhibition.
The special service will depart early in the morning from Roosendaal in the Netherlands on Tuesday 10 November, calling at 10 other Dutch stations en route. It will arrive at the Messe station in Hanover at around 9.00 a.m., allowing passengers a full day at the exhibition before the return journey in the evening. A covered skywalk runs from the Messe station directly to Entrance West 1 at Hall 13.

Furthermore, in collaboration with Agritechnica organisers DLG and Deutsche Messe AG, Deutsche Bahn is offering visitors attractive discounts for nationwide rail travel to Hanover for the event, and many national and regional rail services will be making extra stops at the Messe station in Hannover/Laatzen for the duration of Agritechnica.

As a major exporting country of agri-food products such as meat, dairy and fresh produce, the Netherlands is a key player in the global agricultural sector and it consistently ranks highly in the breakdown of international visitors to Agritechnica by country. More than 2,700 exhibitors have already signed up for Agritechnica 2015, of whom some 118 come from the Netherlands.
