Düsseldorf – Accessibility & Infrastructure

Due to its central location and highly developed infrastructure, Düsseldorf is a gateway to the European markets. The venues of the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital are situated in the centre of the most populous region in Germany. The huge catchment area stretches from the Ruhr region all the way to Cologne and the Eifel region. A total of 155 million people live within a radius of 500 km from Düsseldorf.

Due to good traffic connections, the state capital is easily accessible by air, road or rail.


Düsseldorf Airport is Germany's third largest airport, with over 60 airlines, 190 non-stop destinations and around 22 million passengers per year. This makes it the most important hub in NRW.
