Traffic and public transport constraints

On July 1 & 2 the Grand Depart of the Tour de France will take place in Düsseldorf. Because of that many streets will be blocked or only have partial access. Public transport will also get affected by this. You can find a map with all the details here: Düsseldorf Map

To the competitors and guests of the German Big Cube Open 2017: Please plan in enough time for traffic and arrival!

Saturday:
Closure affects two major bridges (Rheinkniebrücke & Oberkasseler Brücke) and the riverside. Public transport in range of the venue shouldn't be affected. Only some trams will be cancelled.

Sunday:
Big parts of the city streets and the two bridges (Theodor-Heuss-Brücke & Oberkaseler Brücke) will be blocked. The street of the venue (Lacembletstraße) will be only open for residents and the Brehmstraße will be blocked. Smaller neighbouring streets will have partial access. Arrival will probably be severely complicated.
Public transport will be affected as well. Only trains will run in the area. You can reach the venue from the station: Düsseldorf-Derendorf.

Please plan in enough time on Sunday!

Here you can find more details on public transport:
