There is no major hotel at the University place. Please, use free internet services (e.g. to book a hotel in Düsseldorf!

Some suggestions:

-          Hotel Düsseldorf City (Japanese-like, within walking distance from the University)

-          Hotel Fährhaus (at the Rhine bank, within jogging distance from the University)

-          Haus Mooren (a small cute private Hotel within walking distance from the University,
though a bit noisy due to a major street location)

-          Any hotel in the Düsseldorf city, as there is an excellent public transportation connection to the University (see “Location and how to get there”)

Travel information
The university campus is a small town within a town which is why it has many stops for buses and trams. We suggest using the Rheinbahn's timetable to find the quickest way to reach your goal:

Arriving by plane
Düsseldorf Rhine-Ruhr airport is one of the biggest in Europe. There is a good connection to the main station by city train (S-Bahn) and from there to the university by tram (line 707 or U79 to the final stop “Uni-Ost / Botanischer Garten”= University east / botanical garden).

Arriving by train
Düsseldorf main station is connected to all international long-distance train routes. Both the U79 and the 707 tram go from there directly to the university. The final stop on both lines is “Uni-Ost / Botanischer Garten” = University east / botanical garden) (marked in the Map HHU campus and UKD). Travel time from the station is around 10 or 20 minutes.

The stops “Uni-Kliniken” (University clinics), “Christophstraße” and “Südpark” (South park) are all within a few minutes’ walk from the university and can be reached using trams 701, 707 and 713.


Arriving by bus
The university is on the route of the following buses: 735, 827, 835 and 836. If you take the 735 or 827 you can get off at “Universität Mensa” (University canteen), “Universität Mitte” (University centre) or “Universität Süd” (University south). If you take the 835 or 836 you can get off at “Universität West” (University west), “Universität Mitte” (University centre) or “Universität Süd” (University south).

The university is best reached from Hildener Kreuz (Hilden junction) (A 3 / A 46) via Düsseldorf-Süd junction (Düsseldorf south) (A 46). Leave the A 46 in the tunnel (exit Zentrum / Universität = centre / university). Turn left at the first at the first traffic lights into Universitätsstrasse which runs through the campus.

The university is best reached from Neuss-Süd junction where the A 46 and A 57 merge. After the Fleher Rhine bridge take the exit Bilk / Zentrum / Hafen / Benrath (Bilk / centre / harbour / Benrath). Stay in the right-hand lane and follow the signs to Benrath / Universität (Benrath / university).
