Public Transport

Would you like to travel to the Annakirmes by public transport? No Problem!

You are planning to arrive by train?

The travel information and online booking tool of Deutsche Bahn gives you all information needed to reach the fair on the Rur river by rail. Just click the button below.

In Düren station you switch trains on platform 4a to Rurtalbahn (Rur-valley-rail). On special schedule this takes you to the fairground in just three minutes. Rurtalbahn trains are available for the return trip until the fair’s closing time. You don’t need to buy a special ticket of Rurtalbahn in Düren station. Most Deutsche Bahn-tickets take you right to the stop "Düren Annakirmesplatz" at the fairground itself. Please see the travel information of Deutsche Bahn or the customers centre of Dürener Kreisbahn (Düren county public transport) for details.


For some years now the visitors of the Annakirmes can reach the fairground using a ticket of VRS (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Sieg = Rhein-Sieg public transport tariff association). Fair-fans from Pulheim for example do not need to buy another ticket for the Rurtalbahn train for the ride from Düren station to the stop "Annakirmesplatz". All VRS-tickets are valid within the entire City of Düren.
