Airports Near Nijmegen

Dear All,

I am surprised to see such lightening quick reply to the queries, I am delighted.

I have a small question.

To avail any cheap flight from Nijmegen to say Berlin (ryan Air) I can see that the airline url doesnt give the option of Nijmegen, but does show up Dusseldorf (wheez) and Eindhoven, with some googling I could also figure out that these are the nearest ones which has airport and well connected to Nijmegen by train or bus or anyother alternate mode of transport.

Firstly, is my assumption right? secondly how are these towns connected to Nijmegen, any pointers on cheap but safe means of transport to Nijmegen from Eindhoven or Dusseldorf wheez.

Is Dusseldorf wheez(ryanair says this)different from Dusseldorf (DUS) (Easyjet website says this)if so whats the difference.

Regards
Karthik

The difference between the airports at Weeze and Düsseldorf is about 40 miles ;-)

Ryanair is well-known for being "whimsical" with naming its airport destinations...I see in Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weeze_..., there have even been court cases on how misleading their naming convention is.

However, in your case, this may be OK, because Weeze is much closer to Nijmegen than Düsseldorf is. It looks like there is a rail line from Nijmegen to Weeze, and then you'll probably need a bus or taxi from the train station to the airport. See www.bahn.de for train schedules.

Conversely, it looks like there are also direct buses from Nijmegen to the airport, see the airport's website at airport-weeze.de/2-3_an_und_...
This may be even simpler.
