By plane

The closest and most convenient airports to travel to Jülich are Cologne-Bonn (CGN) and Düsseldorf (DUS), from where you can reach Jülich by train in 1.5-2 hours. If arriving on an intercontinental flight, you might consider flying to Frankfurt/Main airport (FRA, two hours by train to Jülich if you use the high speed train to Cologne). Cologne main train station also has an IATA code (QKL). We do not recommend that you fly to Maastricht Aachen (MST), Dortmund (DTM) or Düsseldorf Weeze (NRN), because of the poor public transport connections to Jülich from these airports.

From Düsseldorf airport to Jülich: From the railway station “Düsseldorf Flughafen” at the airport, travel to Cologne main train station and then continue on to Düren. Some trains go directly to Düren whereas other connections involve a change at Cologne main train station. Continue from Düren as described in "By train".

From Cologne Bonn airport to Jülich: From the railway station “Köln/Bonn Flughafen” at the airport, take the S13 to Cologne main train station and then continue with a regional train (RE or RB) or S12 to Düren. Continue from Düren as described in "By train".
