Dusseldorf to Gelsenkirschen

I will be visiting Dusseldorf for FIFA matches in June that are taking place in Gelsenkirschen..

Where is a nice place to stay? I was looking at the Hotel Orangerie in the old town- are there lots of restaurants around this hotel? Places to walk to?

1. Re: Dusseldorf to Gelsenkirschen


is in a nice location in the Altstadt (old town) of Düsseldorf. What they write about their location


is correct.

Gelsenkirschen would be a nice name too. Kirschen = cherries in German.

But it's Gelsenkirchen.

Düsseldorf = Duesseldorf when umlauts (ä ö ü) are not available (ü -> ue). E.g.


Gelsenkirchen and Düsseldorf are both inside the VRR, the local public transport network of the Rhine-Ruhr area.


Your entrance ticket to the match covers the trip from Düsseldorf to Gelsenkirchen for the match.

You can also use the DB timetable


you can use

"D" as a shortut for Düsseldorf Hbf (main railway station)

"DUS" as a shortcut for Düsseldorf Airport train station
