Airport

Dortmund’s airport is located 13 km east of the city at Flughafenring 11. There are regular bus services running between the airport and the city bus station (located opposite the main train station). The journey time is around 25 minutes. The first bus from Dortmund departs at 4.30am; the last bus departs at 10pm. A current bus timetable can be downloaded from the airport website. Look for ’airport express’ (the airport shuttle refers to the connection with the local railway station). An alternative, but slower, route is to take the city bus 440 at the airport and then change at Aplerbeck station for the U47 metro. There is also a 5-minute bus shuttle service connecting the airport with the local railway station, Holzwickede. From here you can catch a regular train into Dortmund. Trains run approximately 8 every hour. The buses run at 15-20 minute intervals. Children under 6 travels free of charge. Taxis take around 15 minutes. A journey to Dortmund Central Station from the airport cost about 22€.
