What's wrong with going by train?
Distance is, depending which route, between 160 and 180 kms. https://www.taxi-rechner.de gives me costs of 385 € on the shortest route.
No one does such long trips by taxi. Take the train, and then perhaps a taxi from Paderborn central station to your final destination if you must.
thank you for this.
I think the timing of the flight/schedule made the train a little tricky.
This is good to know!
Thank you for your help with this. WIll relay to the traveler.
Last connection from Düsseldorf Airport station to Paderborn is at 22:28, arriving at 1:00, and hourly or more frequent before that, with one change in Hamm (plus occasional direct trains in between). So unless the traveller lands after 10 pm, there is nothing that awkward with train timings. And if s/he arrives that much later you can just as well book an hotel at the airport or close by and start early next day.
That is very helpful. Thank you
