Sky-Train Düsseldorf


Because of its expertise in operating the H-Bahn in Dortmund, the H-Bahn Gesellschaft Dortmund was asked to consult with the planning and construction of the Düsseldorf monorail facility.

In July 2002, Düsseldorf Airport opened their Sky-Train system based upon the same technology used at Dortmund University in July 2002. As a result of the new convenient connection between the railway station and the terminals the amount of automobile traffic to the airport was drastically reduced.

Pictures of the Sky-Train can be found in the Sky-Train Gallery.
