Our driver was exactly what we hoped and a little more: punctual, responsible trough out the entire duration of our trip, understanding and efficient, overall very proficient. Also, thanks to the support team who was very efficient with helping us locate our driver at the arrival ( it was our first time in Bulgaria and we were a little lost in translation). Thank you!

The taxi driver was very open to conversation, entertaining as well as instructive and took care into making the travel as pleasant as possible while driving through the outskirts of Hamburg. Furthermore, he took me right to my hotel door in front of the airport even when he didnt actually have to! A wonderful experience. 100% recommend. Ana Redon Herranz
In case of Corona the Taxi Service was running without any complications. The driver was very friendly and kind. Drove very smooth. And the price was incredible. Thank you for your help in this strange time with Corona to helped us come home as soon as possible. Sarah F.
The driver was there on time, even at bit earlier, he was very courteous, and he arrived in Dubai well ahead of time whilst always driving carefully and observing the speed limit. The car was spacious and clean. So, all in all it was a very positive experience. D. Fuehrer
The driver was on time. He was easy to find. He was very helpful with the bags both at pickup and the destination. He knew where he was going and the vehicle was more than adequate for 4 people. What more could we ask for, very pleasant experience overall. Diane Sandrejko

Dusseldorf Airport to Essen: Transfers and Taxi

Transfers from Dusseldorf Airport to Essen

Travelers arriving at the Dusseldorf (DUS) Airport and requiring a connecting trip to Essen have a few transport options available at the air hub. There is a cheap train service but it is important to note that no train will get you to your exact destination.

Getting to Essen directly from the air hub will be so much quicker, easier, and hitch-free when you plan for it in advance by booking a transfer.

Get transferred to Essen immediately on your arrival at DUS airport by booking a transfer with Kiwitaxi now.

Simply select your route and a suitable car class from the options available on the website, and make payment accordingly. On your arrival, there will be a driver awaiting you with your nameplate for identification; helps with your luggage, and takes you straight to your destination — no hassles, no unnecessary stops, no searching for a cab, and certainly no sharing with other passengers. Your comfort is our priority.

The transfer costs from €77. The trip takes 30 min.

Taxi from Dusseldorf Airport to Essen

From Dusseldorf Airport to Essen by taxi costs between €72 and €85 and takes around 25-30 min depending on traffic conditions.

You will find the cream-white taxis at the Departure and Arrivals level with the official "Airport Taxi" sticker on the roofs.

Taxis in Dusseldorf are a comfortable and reliable means of transport. However, for a public means such as taxis, the cost is rather too high. You share with other passengers and there are so many stops. A transfer in this case is more preferable as you do not share.

Payment can only be made by credit card or deposit. Cash is not accepted by the official taxis. To avoid such inconveniences, book a transfer to your destination.

Taxi apps for calling a taxi here include:

  • Free Now (mytaxi)
  • Taxi.eu
  • Sixt
  • Taxilo

Uber is also available in Dusseldorf.

Note that cabs hailed with the apps are also rather expensive as the regular ones.

Public Transport from Dusseldorf Airport to Essen

The options include the following:

  • Train: The Thalys train departs from Dusseldorf Airport Train Station (Dusseldorf Flughafen) twice daily. It makes one stop at Duisburg before going on to stop at Essen Hbf station. Ticket price varies from €35-€70 depending on comfort level. The trip takes 24 min.
  • Bus: Take the Bus 721 which departs from the airport Terminals A/B/C at the Arrivals level. It makes a stop a Dusseldorf-Worringer Platz. From here, make a transfer into any of the bus lines 084, N1961, N1971, N74, and N971. They get you to Essen. Ticket costs around €8-€10. Although very cheap, this option takes more than an hour, more than double the expected time expected.
  • Bus/Train: Take the SB51 Bus or Skytrain at Dusseldorf Airport Railway Station Terminal A or B. Upon arriving at Dusseldorf-Flughafen station, take the ICE, S1, RE2, RE, or RE6 train to Essen Hbf. The total time amounts to about 30 min and costs from €9-€53.

Departure is not so frequent and will delay your trip. Price is also on the high side for a train service that does not stop at your doorstep. There are many stops and you are not taken to your hotel or other destination as a transfer would.
