Travel offers to destination and accommodation offers
The tickets for drupa 2012 (03 to 16 May 2012) are available online at www.drupa.com as of 25 January. For the first time, the tickets are offered as eTickets – this means double the benefits for the visitor: Saving time and money. Visitors can purchase their ticket online, print it out on their own printer and travel to the trade fair by bus and train free of charge. Furthermore, the eTicket is clearly less expensive than the ticket purchased on location. The one-day ticket costs 40 euros online, at the cash desks in Düsseldorf the price is 65 euros. The four-day ticket costs 129 euros on the Internet compared to 220 euros when purchased on location. And also the reduced admission fee for students and trainees is cheaper via Internet: 15 euros instead of 25 euros.
The opening hours of drupa are from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm daily (at weekends until 5.00 pm). All drupa tickets include free round trip transportation with busses, subway and trains to the trade fair on the Regional Transport Networks Rhine-Ruhr (VRR) and Rhine-Sieg (VRS) (2nd class, supplement-free trains only). More information about the rail network at www.vrr.de and www.vrs-info.de.
In addition there is an attractive offer, which Messe Düsseldorf, in collaboration with the Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) and Düsseldorf Marketing & Tourismus (DMT), has agreed upon. Trade fair visitors can travel from all German cities to Düsseldorf and back at a reasonable price: For example, for 109 euros you can purchase a round trip railway ticket from Hamburg (Savings: more than 30 euros). If you are still looking for accommodation in Düsseldorf or in the region, you will surely find something at DMT. The following website will let you find numerous hotel offers in a wide variety of categories or accommodations in private homes:
