Location and directions
Limbecker Platz 1a
Just take a train from the main station in Duisburg (“Duisburg Hauptbahnhof”) to the main station in Essen (“Essen Hauptbahnhof”).
It takes around 15 minutes walking from the main station in Essen. Besides, there are a lot of shops on the way which you can visit as well.
Alternatively, you can use public transport to get there within 3-5 minutes. Nearly all underground lines (e.g. U11 – Direction Gelsenkirchen Buerer Str., U17 – Direction Essen Karlsplatz, U18 – Direction Essen Berliner Platz) pass it. But be careful, the station is called Berliner Platz, not Limbecker Platz.
Furthermore, you can use the following website http://vrr.de/en/index.html for additional information like timetable.
However, be patient. Especially in the afternoon and on Saturdays, there are many people and it could be a little crowded.
