Travel and Accommodation

Getting to Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf can be comfortably reached by train and plane.

by Train:
Düsseldorf main station is called “Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof”. From here, trains to other major German cities depart as well as trains going to the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, and France.
From Düsseldorf main station, the airports “Düsseldorf” (DUS) and “Köln/Bonn” (CGN) can be reached by train.

by Plane:
Coming to Düsseldorf by plane is rather straightforward, as Düsseldorf has its own airport (DUS). In case your departure location does not provide direct flights to DUS, you may consider going to “Köln/Bonn” airport (CGN) or to “Frankfurt” airport (FRA) instead.
From CGN, take any of the regional trains (abbreviated RE or S) to Düsseldorf main station. 
From FRA, most people take one of the high-speed trains (abbreviated IC or ICE) to get to Düsseldorf. Of course, taking regular regional trains from FRA to Düsseldorf is possible, but takes its time (3½ hours and more).


Generally, accommodations close to the university campus or close to “Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof” (main station) provide convenient travel to the university campus. We here suggest some hotels and Airbnb as an alternative service for finding accommodations. We assume no liability for the respective accommodations.
