How to reach the Center of Computer Science by public transport?

The nearest international airport is Düsseldorf. You can reach Aachen from Düsseldorf Airport in approximately 1.5 hours by train.

If you arrive at Frankfurt Airport, you have to take an InterCity (IC) or InterCityExpress (ICE) train directed to Köln (Cologne) which takes between 1 and 2 hours. In Köln, you have a direct connection to Aachen. It takes about 45 to 70 minutes from Köln to Aachen. The fastest train is the TGV/Thalys to Paris, which usually is a bit more expensive than the other trains. The Deutsche Bahn AG has an electronic time table.
