    Travel to BonnTop

    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). This station is in the AIRail Terminal, next to Terminal 1. Trains arrive at and depart from platforms 4 to 7. Participants are recommended to travel either by Inter City Express (ICE) train to Bonn/Siegburg or by direct train to Bonn central station (Bonn Hauptbahnhof). For more information, visit www.frankfurt-airport.de.

    High-speed ICE trains to Siegburg/ Bonn or Intercity (IC)/Eurocity (EC) trains to Bonn central station (Hauptbahnhof) leave from the Frankfurt airport long-distance train station two to three times every hour between 5 a.m. and 9 p.m. The high-speed train journey to Siegburg/Bonn takes 40 minutes. 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.

The 25 km bus journey from the airport takes about 30 minutes. There is only one bus stop at the airport for the bus to Bonn. The bus stop is located at Terminal 1. When travelling to the airport, the bus stops at Terminal 1 (annex A). The price of a one-way bus ticket to Bonn is around 7 euros. Tickets may be purchased from the driver or at the ticket machine.
