Düsseldorf Airport (DUS) is Germany’s third largest airport. If you arrive here, take the city train S11 to the central station.
There is also Weeze Airport (NRN), which is sometimes associated with Düsseldorf. As it is located more than 90km away from the city, we recommend flying to Düsseldorf Airport instead.
Düsseldorf Central Station is serviced by national and international trains. Check the website of the Deutsche Bahn for connections.
If you need to use buses, trams, or the metro, you might want to buy a single ticket (about 2,90€) or a day ticket (about 7,30€), all for the zone A (city centre). Tickets can be purchased in the buses (coins only), trams and the metro (coins and cards) as well as at ticket machines at the main station or the old town. For information on routes, timetables, and prices check the website of the Rheinbahn.
