Getting around Düsseldorf’s central areas is easy thanks to an extensive underground network. Although the U in U-Bahn does not stand for underground, most of the trains that are part of the U fleet run beneath the street. It’s easy to find a subway station by looking for the giant signs besides the entries—most often a white U on a lit-up blue background. The U-Bahn will easily get you to destinations like Koenigsallee or the Heinrich-Heine Allee, where the shopping and pedestrian areas are. For most people, a VRR ticket for Zone A will get you where you’re going for 2.70 Euros (adult) or 1.60 Euros (ages 6-15), and even allow you to transfer to a tram or bus. Kids under six ride for free. If you have a shorter journey—less than four stops—you can get a Kurzstrecke Ticket for 1.60 Euros. And if you’re traveling frequently, consider buying a 4-er ticket or strip of 10 journeys for reduced prices. A day pass for one will set you back 7 Euros, and you can buy a pass for up to five people for 20.20 Euros. Just be warned in advance: if you don’t want to use the convenient mobile tickets (called Handy tickets), you’ll need to bring coins for the ticket machines on the trains or risk a hefty fine for riding without a ticket.
