Opened in 1950 for the autumn fair, the Messehof was the first completely new exhibition building of the post-war period. Inside the 80-metre long shopping promenade was redesigned in 2006. In the hall at the entrance to Petersstraße, the illuminated mushroom-shaped marble column is reminiscent of the old arcade.

The Messehof Arcade is connected to the Königshaus Arcade via the Mädler Passage.
