New Entrance North
From 2023 on, there will be a second visitor and new main entrance to DoKomi: Entrance North. From Düsseldorf city center you can take one of the two underground trains U78 and U79 to the stop "Merkur Spiel-Arena/Messe Nord". The bus stop is directly in front of the entrance north of DoKomi.
Together with the already known south entrance, the north entrance will enable a smooth flow of our admission system and a quick processing of the visitor flow.
We also recommend that you use the early admission to the indoor area. Already from 2 hours before the official opening you can enter the area and stay in the inner area or have breakfast with the catering offers. So you can completely avoid the longer waiting time for the main opening and experience the DoKomi to the fullest.
In the last few years we've already invited several special guests coming from all around the world, just to give you the chance to meet them at DoKomi!
We will announce the special guests for 2023 one by one.
More Special Guests will be announced soon
