Travelling from Hotel Esplanade Dortmund to TU Dortmund University

There are several options to easily get from Hotel Esplanade Dortmund to Dortmund Central Station:

Option 1 From the hotel, you can comfortably reach the main exit of Dortmund Central Station by a walk of about ten minutes. Go out of the hotel entrance onto “Bornstraße” and turn right onto “Bundesstraße 54”. Walk straight ahead in the direction of “Königswall” for about 10 minutes. Then you can already see the main entrance of the Dortmund Central Station directly in front of you.

Option 2 Alternatively, you can also reach the Central Station by underground or bus. From Hotel Esplanade Dortmund walk about 3 minutes to the underground station "Reinoldikirche". Take underground line U43 to “Kampstraße” (going in the direction “Dorstfeld Betriebshof” or “Westentor”) and switch there to underground line U47 (going in the direction “Westerfilde S-Bahnhof”) or underground line U49 (going in the direction “Hauptbahnhof Dortmund”). If you want to travel by bus, take bus line 460 from “Reinoldikirche” to Dortmund Central Station. The bus runs every 20 minutes. To then get from Dortmund Central Station to TU Dortmund University, take the S-Bahn 1 going in the direction of “Solingen/Essen” from platform 7. The train leaves every fifteen minutes and will get you to the underground station “Dortmund Universität” in short time.

Arriving by car, it is possible to park at the various parking areas at TU Dortmund University, for example at "Emil-Figge-Straße" or under the Mensabrücke TU Dortmund at "Vogelpothsweg".

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
