Public Transportation (Local and Long-Distance)
At certain times of the day, the parking lots and garages on and near the hospital grounds are filled to capacity. Thus, we recommend that patients and visitors arrive by public transportation. Essen University Hospital is centrally located and easily accessible by busses and light-rail trains. In the daytime, light-rail trains (U-Stadtbahn and Straßenbahn) operate every 10 minutes.
The U17 line runs from Berliner Platz (city) via Hauptbahnhof (central train station) to Margarthenhöhe - Holsterhauser Platz station.
The 101 and 106 trolley lines (Straßenbahn) stop at the main entrance of the University Hospital of Essen (stop: Klinikum). It is a circular service connecting Essen suburbs such as Borbeck and Altendorf with Central Station and the University Hospital. Line 101 travels clockwise along this circular route, and Line 106 travels anti-clockwise. This means: Take one line on the outward journey, and the other one back.
The busses 160/161 - stop: Klinikum - will take you to Borbeck and Stoppenberg.
Visitors and other guests will find a taxi stand next to the main entrance on Hufelandstraße. Patients have the option of calling a taxi from the gate (phone: 2617) or of asking the nursing staff to call a taxi company of their choice.
Transportation from Duesseldorf International Airport: Take a taxi or a train (S1, RE1, RE6, RE11) to Essen Hauptbahnhof (central train station) and continue on either U17 to Holsterhauser Platz station or trolley line 106 to its Klinikum stop.
