Flights & getting there


Dortmund Airport is served by easyJet and Ryanair. It's about 12km east of the city centre. The AirportExpress bus to Dortmund's Hauptbahnhof leaves hourly from outside the terminal (€8.50, 25 minutes).


The central bus station (ZOB) is on Steinstrasse, just outside the north exit of the Hauptbahnhof, and served by Flixbus, Ouibus and other companies.


There are frequent ICE and IC trains in all directions and RE and S-Bahn trains to other Ruhrgebiet cities departing every few minutes. The Hauptbahnhof is on the northern edge of the partly pedestrianised city centre.
