5,000 free tickets for each live open-air concerts, 150 different models available for free test drives, six days of Open Space, diverse family offerings: The IAA MOBILITY turns into a mobility festival.

The second edition of the IAA MOBILITY showcases the IAA Open Space in Munich's city center from September 5th to 10th. For six days, visitors can experience a diverse and innovative mobility experience free of charge. Here are five reasons why a visit to the IAA Open Space is worth it:

  1. Sustainable Mobility Festival: Located in the heart of Munich across various central squares, numerous exhibitors display their visionary mobility solutions. Spread out across the city's most prominent squares — from Ludwigstraße and Hofgartenstraße to Odeonsplatz, Königsplatz, Wittelsbacherplatz, Max-Joseph-Platz, Marienplatz, and Residenzhöfen — new innovations from the mobility and tech industry are showcased. In addition to discussions about the future of mobility at the Citizens Lab, there's also a diverse music program and culinary delights to enjoy.
  2. Hands-on Mobility Experience: Visitors have the opportunity to test various vehicles, including emission-free models and innovative micro-mobility products. With 150 different models available, there will be six entry and exit points in the Open Space. This year's highlight is the bicycle test track in the English Garden. Also, don't miss out on the immersive IAA MOBILITY Metaverse Experience at Munich's Königsplatz.
  3. Future Talks in the Citizens Lab: This open forum at Marienplatz invites discussions with experts from various fields. Topics focus on sustainable mobility projects and urban development. There will be sessions and workshops with representatives from politics, economy, science, and culture. Themes: The future of mobility and how liveable cities can be jointly designed and made tangible. The Citizens Lab also offers interactive participation, featuring literary competitions and movie nights on mobility, climate protection, and urban development.
  4. Child-friendly Mobility Experiences: Children can playfully explore the world of mobility, take part in a treasure hunt, and meet the official IAA mascot, the squirrel LIAA. The "Family Trail" features a treasure hunt and 14 stations with exciting activities. After successfully completing at least 4 stations, there's even a medal awaiting: the LIAA medal.
  5. Musical Highlights at Königsplatz: A diverse program awaits visitors at Königsplatz with free open-air concerts daily from September 5th to 9th. For example, the Bavarian duo Bruckner and the Munich band KYTES will play on Tuesday, 05.09. The following day, EnBW presents the HyperNight with Elif. On Thursday, Munich singer-songwriter Levent Geiger will charm with piano tunes, followed by German singer Leony with pop melodies. On Saturday, British singer-songwriter Moss Kena will perform at Königsplatz, followed by the German producer collective Glockenbach, featuring Icelandic musician ÁSDÍS. Each concert offers 5,000 free tickets, and entry is only with a ticket. They can be reserved for free on the IAA MOBILITY website while supplies last. To conclude the IAA Open Space on Sunday, there's a special program with the DONIKKL Crew for children. Also, the well-known presenter and reporter from "Checker Tobi”, Tobi Krell, will be on-site delving into knowledge-based questions. Am Sonntag wird es zum Abschluss des IAA Open Space zudem ein spezielles Programm mit der DONIKKL Crew für Kinder geben.
