    There are many ways to get to Bonn, which can easily be reached by bus, train or car from the airports at Cologne/Bonn, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt. Trains coming from many cities in Germany and other parts of Europe stop at Bonn. Numerous highways complete the transport infrastructure.

    How to travel from the airports to Bonn

    From Frankfurt am Main airport: Participants arriving at Frankfurt airport should go to the Frankfurt airport long-distance train station, which is reached by following the signs to 'Frankfurt Flughafen Fernhahnhof' (Frankfurt airport long-distance train station).

Trains leave at least once an hour.

    Alternatively the IC/EC train, also from Frankfurt long-distance train station, goes directly to Bonn central station (in the centre of Bonn). Travel time is between 1.5 and 2 hours.
