All speakers need to organise their own accommodation. You find a selection of hotels in Düsseldorf below.

It is recommended that you make your reservations well ahead of time. Due to trade-fairs, hotels can be fully booked or very expensive if not booked early.

Getting Here

Düsseldorf Airport (DUS) is Germany’s third largest airport. If you arrive here, take the city train S11 to the central station.

Weeze Airport (NRN), is sometimes associated with Düsseldorf. As it is located more than 90km away from the city, and 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.

Public Transport

For information on routes, timetables, and prices check the website of the Rheinbahn. Individual fairs (about 3,10€ for zone A) can be bought at ticket machines inside of the trains.

Information for tourists are available here.
