London - Essen * Closest Airport

Thu Jun 01, 2006 1:34 am

I checked LHR - ESS and it won't come up in Travelocity or on BA's website. What's the closest airport to Essen, Germany?

DUS - Dusseldorf or DTM - Dortmund are probably your best bets.

A cheaper one would be CGN as low cost acrriers go their and there is a good train service to Essen

don�t forget the FR service STN - NRN,

NRN is about 60 minutes by train. If I recall correctly there is a coach service to Duisburg which is nearby

Quoting EDDL (Reply 3):
DUS is the closest one.

Exactly. Driving time from DUS to ESS is probably 15-20 minutes (depends on the traffic). Enter the A44 at DUS airport, take the next exit and enter the A52 into direction Essen. Take the exit "Essen-Kettwig" and you are there.
