Attention! These maps are unofficial! In case of conflict, the info from Merz Verlag is ALWAYS considered correct.

Hi all,

Regular visitors of this forum may already know the detailed maps I've created for several years now, like here:
Hall Plans 2013 are ONLINE! (With detailed maps)
Hall Plans for Essen Spiel 2014 - Detailed Maps ==FINISHED==.
Hall Plans for Essen Spiel 2015 - Detailed Maps

And here are the maps for the SPIEL 2016! Enjoy!

corrected and with increased booth number font

A3 PDF: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40111876/Essen2016_A3.pd...
A4 PDF: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40111876/Essen2016_A4.pd...


Click here if font comes out distorted when printing the PDFs.

Thank you all for your very kind words and your support!

Disclaimer: These maps are based on the official info from Merz-Verlag, but they are to be considered unofficial. Do not refer to them in case of an emergency. In case of conflict, the Info from Merz Verlag is correct.


These last days I have been contacted a few times by people who wanted to know whether I will be doing the maps this year. To those people and all others, I hereby say: Yes! I will be creating these maps for this year as well.

I am currently regularly checking the Merz Verlag site for any update. I already have the "Neuheitenliste" (list of new published games) and a map of Hall 3 (based on a map on the Schwerkraft website). I also have a list of booths of publishers garnered from the Spiel geeklist.

Given that even more halls have been added, I'll probably make a 3 page A3 version and a 5 or 6 page A4 version. My criteria of having just one double-sided sheet was thorouzghly thwarted by SPIEL's insatiable growth. laugh

As soon as the official hall plans have been published, I'll get to work, and you'll see the maps here in this thread, probably mere days later. I'll edit this post as soon as I have more info.

Again, a huge thanks to everyone for their encouragements, kind words, and thank yous.

Thank you so much. I've always been using your awesome maps for the last couple of years. They have been a great help to get around and find what I want to. Looking forward to use them again this year.

Re: Hall Plans for Essen Spiel 2016 - Coming soon!
Looking at that overview at the top of the page, it's almost back to my first visit four years ago when Spiel was spread out over all those smaller halls on the north side of the Galeria. Get your navigational skills up to scratch, folks

and will replace it by a link to your 2016 hall plans once you've finished them.
I hope you agree?

Kind regards,

You can stop pressing F5 for the moment.

I have now completed halls 1-3 and the Galeria. I'm gonna take a break now and then continue tomorrow with the rest.

I'll try to be finished by Sunday evening, but Halls 4-7 have many small booths and I can't reuse a lot from the previous version, so it may take me up to Monday or Tuesday evening (CEST) until I'm all done.

Re: Hall Plans for Essen Spiel 2016 - Coming soon!
Mr. Baum, I hereby nominate you for the Essen Attendee Geek Hero Award. meeple

And as far as I know, this award does not yet exist, so we need somebody to create a microbatch and some kind of procedure for nominations etc. No big ceremony, just some nice and neat way.

Re: Hall Plans for Essen Spiel 2016 - Coming soon!
hi duke,

as always your maps help a lot. i cant wait until there done.
ill spread them to my gaming group.

i am always amazed that the official maps are that annoying to use.
yes there not bad, but its only numbers and booths, if you want to look somthing up you have to go to the annoying procces of looking it up.

Wow, you guys certainly know how to put pressure on someone...

Just kidding, I appreciate the show of support and I'm happy to provide something of use to other geeks.


So, without further ado:
