Düsseldorf, Germany (DE)
Düsseldorf Airport lies 7km north of Düsseldorf and 20km south-west of Essen. It has three terminals, connected in one long building:
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.
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)
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: Level 0, Arrivals level, opposite door E

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
The only shower option in Düsseldorf is the Lufthansa Senator Lounge on level 2, after security in Pier C. It is not open to the public.
If you‘re dropping someone off, go to short-stay car park P12, directly in front of Terminal C, Arrivals. For those accompanying someone to Departures and parking for just a few minutes, we recommend short-stay car park P11, right next to Terminal C Departures. They cost EUR 1.80 every 12 minutes (so make sure it is short).
