Frankfurt or Dusseldorf to Essen if Berlin is part of the leg  (17 Answers)

Hi, will be coming over to Essen in late October for the SPIEL convention. That's from 18-21 Oct. However we are going to drop by Berlin first for the ASICS Grand 10 Berlin run on 14 Oct.

Our flight options are either into Frankfurt or Dusseldorf. There's drop to Munich and Hamburg but given their distance from Essen, I've excluded them. Oh.. we are from Malaysia (Asia) btw.

Our itinerary is going to run like this
12/10 Drop into XXX (Frankfurt or Dusseldorf)
12/10 Travel by train from XXX to Berlin
14/10 ASICS Grand 10 Berlin
17/10 Travel by train from Berlin - Essen (if a direct train is possible, if not I suppose we've to change at Dusseldorf or Frankfurt)
18/10 SPIEL Essen (till 21/10)
22/10 Travel from Essen to XXX (Frankfurt or Dusseldorf)
22/10 Depart for Malaysia from XXX

Question is in above plan, is Dusseldorf or Frankfurt a better option as XXX for us? Many thanks in advance for your time. :)

Help pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase!  (2 Answers)

I am trying to find an affordable hotel ( double room) for our visit to Essen next september during the welding fair. However, all hotels I e-mailed said to have no available rooms for the period ( is it normal? do you think if I call by phone I might have different answer!!)

I am looking for a double room not exceeding 75euros per day ( including breakfast), Isn't that enough for finding a double room in Essen???!!!

I am desperate and don't know what to do? I already thought of the alternative of booking a double room in dusseldorf, but then we would have to take the train every morning ( added expenses!!)..

What do you advise me to do?

Please help me.
