Group B

The five host cities from west to east:

Düsseldorf  Gelsenkirchen

Dortmund  Hamburg

Leipzig  Berlin

The five host cities in this group lie in the north, in a cluster of three in the northwest and in the east of Germany.

A good host city for a base for this group would be Dortmund

As an alternative, a city not hosting games, but geographically well located and with good road and rail links to the six venues would be Hannover

If you did base yourself in Dortmund and travelled about by rail, then the Deutsche Bahn website shows you what the journeys to the other venues would look like:

Dortmund to Düsseldorf  

Dortmund to Gelsenkirchen  

Dortmund to Hamburg  

Dortmund to Leipzig  

Dortmund to Berlin

The maximum city-to-city distance between the host cities in this group is 350 miles between Düsseldorf and Berlin.

For train times and fares between all host cities see my 'Train times' page.

Depending on how many games you're doing, rather than paying separately for each rail journey you make, it could well work out cheaper to get an Interrail pass, which you could also use for your travel to and from Germany.
