K Show Organizer Messe Düsseldorf noted that within the city 1000 new hotel beds have been added in recent years, which along with another 900 new lodgings in the neighboring cities of Essen, Krefeld, Mönchengladbach and Wuppertal, give the broader Düsseldorf region approximately 79,000 hotel beds. Düsseldorf Marketing & Tourismus GmbH (DMT) has more information online.
In addition to lodging, DMT, Messe Düsseldorf and German rail service Deutsche Bahn have come together with special pricing for return rail tickets—tied to specific trains and as long as stocks last—to Düsseldorf:
- EUR 99, 2nd class
- EUR 159, 1st class
DMT noted that this offer is available online for about three months before the fair opens. K 2016 is open daily from 10.00 am to 6.30 pm. All admission tickets entitle the holder to free travel to and from the fair by bus, tram/metro and trains within the VRR and VRS integrated transport systems (2nd class, surcharge-free trains only).
