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".
