Messestadt Riem is an urban district in the east of Munich. It is part of the municipality 15 Trudering-Riem, and located entirely on the grounds of the 1992 abandoned Munich-Riem airport and includes today, along with a residential area, the Neue Messe München trade fair center and the Riem Arcaden shopping mall.
Messestadt Riem is, after Freiham, the second youngest district of Munich. After the flight operation was moved in 1992 to the new Munich Airport, the old airport building in Riem could be emptied and the construction of the new exhibition center started from the mid-1990s, with the corresponding rapid transit connections in the following years. In 1998, the fair could finally move out of their exhibition halls on the Theresienhöhe to the spacious new building in the fair city. Many other companies also moved and established themselves on the former airport site. Immediately west of the west entrance, the Messesee was created, 390 m long and 46 to 94 m wide , with a water area of 2.6 hectare.
