Heinrich Heine University is a campus university which was founded in 1965. Today around 35,000 students study at Heinrich Heine University.


Please go to the registration desk when you first arrive at the Congress centre to collect your name badge and congress materials. The registration desk is situated on the ground floor of building 23.01. The registration desk will be open at 8.30am (Thursday to Saturday).


The university campus is a small town within a town which is why it has many stops for buses and trams.

There is a good connection to the main train station by public transport. Both the underground line U79 and the tram line 704 go from the main train station direct to the university.

Both connections will take approximately 15 minutes from the main train station to the university campus. For prices, a public transportation map and further information please visit the website of the local transport agency Rheinbahn.

Arrival by air

Düssseldorf Airport has two train stations:

  • The easiest way to get from Düsseldorf Airport to the city center is to use the urban train S11 from Düsseldorf Airport Terminal train station. This is located below terminal C and can be reached via a moving walkway from the arrivals area. From here, you can travel with the S11 to Bergisch Gladbach via Düsseldorf central station.
  • In addition, the cabin railway SkyTrain connects the terminal with the airport railway station (“Düsseldorf Flughafen”). Please note: for traveling by SkyTrain you need a valid ticket. Sometimes the fare is included in the airfare or in the train ticket (VRR tickets, special DB tickets). Please check with your travel agent.

The Congress Dinner will be held at the local craft brewery “Zum Schlüssel”, which is located directly in the heart of the old town of Düsseldorf. The brewery has a unique atmosphere and is well-known for its freshly drafted beer (“Original Schlüssel”) as well as delicious local dishes. Each ticket includes dinner and selected drinks.
