The SkyTrain shuttle

You can use the SkyTrain monorail to get from the main terminal to Düsseldorf Flughafen station (for regional and long-distance trains) and car park P4 (which also leads to P5). It operates daily from 03:45-00:45, leaving every 3-7 minutes and takes six minutes end-to-end.

Be aware: There is only one ticket machine in front of the monorail so queues can be long and you cannot take luggage carts onto the SkyTrain.

Cost: EUR 2.30 (free if you have a VRR or VRS ticket, a DB special offer ticket (City plus, NRW, Schöne-Reise, Schöne-Fahrt or Schöner-Tag), a Flughafen Düsseldorf GmbH car park ticket or a ticket for the observation deck)

Shuttle bus

When the SkyTrain is not operating, you can take a shuttle bus. These leave every 20 minutes from 01:05-03:25. Journey time is eight minutes.

Location: Düsseldorf Flughafen Station, arrivals, ground level, opposite door E

Comfortable resting areas

Get a few hours of rest

There is a comfortable relaxing area to get away from the huzzle and buzzle of the airport. It’s quieter up there than in the galleries and there’s nothing going on from 23:00-5:00.

After security, floor 3, near the observation desk
