Regular trains link to various destinations each day from Düsseldorf Airport’s railway station, Düsseldorf Flughafen. Deutsche Bahn (tel: 0180 599 6633; www.bahn.de) services include regional, express, intercity and high-speed InterCity Express (ICE) trains that connect the airport to a number of cities in Germany. The journey time from Düsseldorf Flughafen to Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) is around 10 minutes and the single fare is €8.
The automated Sky Train links the railway station and the terminal building in around six minutes.
The local S11 S-Bahn metro train runs directly into the airport complex and links to Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof in the city centre for €2.50 and the trip takes 30 minutes. Tickets can be bought from the machines on the platform.
The bus station is located in front of Arrivals, from which a good selection of VRR (tel: 0180 350 4034) regional services operate.
