Getting to Düsseldorf

How to get to Düsseldorf

By train

Düsseldorf is well-connected to the national and international rail network. Even from the UK, Düsseldorf can be reached by train in just a few hours (the best connection from London to Düsseldorf currently takes 4 hours and 57 minutes). More information about train connections can be found at the website of the German railway company Deutsche Bahn.

By plane

Düsseldorf can also be easily reached by plane. You can fly directly to Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is Germany’s third-largest airport. Cologne-Bonn airport (CGN) is also just a short train ride away from Düsseldorf. Alternatively, you can fly to Frankfurt (FRA) and take a train to Düsseldorf, which takes less than one and a half hours if you take the fastest train connection. (Alternatively, you can take the train connection via Koblenz and Mainz, which takes about an hour longer but offers some breathtaking scenery along the way.)

By car

Of course you can also come to Düsseldorf by car – in the age of Google maps and navigation systems, there’s no need to give you any directions, but what might be a valuable hint is that there’s lots of free parking space at the campus. Click here for more information.
