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 undefinedRheinbahn'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.
