If you can find Essen,
you'll find us!
Whether you come by car, rail or by aeroplane: our hotel is so favourably located, you could almost believe the infrastructure was built specifically with us in mind. And here's how easy it is:
The Gruga is the heart of our city, and all roads from the periphery converge like arteries, leading you straight here. As soon as you pass the Essen city limits, simply follow the signposts towards Messe/Gruga. Our house is situated not far from Messe Eingang Ost. Simply follow the hotel signs.
It's even easier to get to us by public transport. Arriving at Hauptbahnhof main railway station, take the U11 towards Messe. It's just a sixminute ride to the penultimate stop Messe Ost/Gruga. And it's just a few steps from there.
There are plenty of trains that run from Düsseldorf airport to the main railway station Essen Hauptbahnhof. There you switch to the U11 towards Messe. It'll take just six minutes to reach the penultimate stop Messe Ost/Gruga. And it's just a few steps from there. (Total travel time approx. 45 minutes) Alternatively, a taxi will bring you straight to our door in round about 20 minutes
Hotel An der Gruga has its own hotel car park (€9/per night). It is sometimes tricky to garner a parking space round about. But still there are plenty of opportunities to leave your car in the close vicinity. If you ever have trouble finding a good spot when travelling here, just get in touch with reception. We'd be pleased to pass on our parking tips.
