    I know we have a thread for the draw itself, but think it would be useful for those intending to travel over to have a dedicated thread.

    We’ve booked on the Eurowings flights to Düsseldorf day of the game; flying back the Thursday. Match ticket covers the train from Düsseldorf to Gelsenkirchen.

    What’s everyone else planning to do/booked?

    Think there are a few flights on each day but I'm doing the same - I'm on the 8.05 traveling back on the 10.25, so only need to take 1 and 1/2 days off work.

    Hotel am Stern, think it’s in the centre and only 10 mins to the ground. No idea what’s it like but was cheap, €75 for 3 of us

    We've paid roughly similar to yourself. Eurowings wouldn't accept payment on the £50 price and instead jumped it up to £130. Still not too bad, especially with the convenience of Düsseldorf being the closest airport.

    We're staying in Düsseldorf. Only a 40 minute train and a much better night out than Schalke, or most places in the Ruhrpott.
