Something big is happening at the BERNEXPO site!

The Festhalle on the BERNEXPO site, erected as a temporary solution in 1948, is being replaced by a new, contemporary building. There will be space for cultural events, shows, sporting events, congresses, concerts, trade fairs and other events, with capacity for up to 9,000 people. The new building is scheduled to open in April 2025. Initial construction work began in early January 2023 and will also be in full swing during the motofestival. To make it as easy and hassle-free as possible for you to get to Messeplatz and find your way to the motofestival, please follow the directions provided.


The BERNEXPO site is a few hundred metres away from the Wankdorf motorway junction. After the motorway exit, follow the signs saying “Expo”. There are clearly marked motorbike parking spaces available at the centre.
