Nuremberg is an old medieval city situated in southern Germany. When people think of Nuremberg, they usually think of gingerbread, toys or Christmas. But the old town of Nuremberg in the shadow of the towering imperial castle is more than that. Gothic churches, splendid patricians’ houses and romantic corners and spots. An atmosphere of lively co-existence between medieval and modern, between the past and the present, prevails in Nuremberg.

How to get here:
Nuremberg Airport (IATA: NUE ICAO: EDDN) Nürnberg Flughafen, +49 911-93700. Air Berlin runs a lot of their flights from Nuremberg. Getting from the airport to the city is no problem. The U2 subway line directly connects Nuremberg Airport with the central train station thus providing access to Nuremberg’s city center in about 12 minutes only. The International Airport has been awarded the renowned Business Traveller Award for being the ‘Best German Airport’ in 2009.
You will probably find yourself arriving by train. The main train station itself is located right next to the old city, which is a stroll away. Starting in 2010 your DB or VGN ticket allows you to use over 650 bus and rail services, the underground (U-Bahn), the suburban railway (S-Bahn and R-Bahn), trams, buses and DB trains. The area covers about 14.000 square kilometers from Bayreuth und Bamberg to Solnhofen in the Altmühltal and to Ebern in the Haßberge district.
Nuremberg is connected to the major German "Autobahn" network (A3, A6, A73, A9). The traffic in the area, town and parking areas is controlled by the biggest dynamic traffic guidance system (Dynamisches Verkehrsleitsystem) in Europe.
The Port of Nuremberg is located about 6 km southwest of the old town and Main Railway Station. During the year, over 500 cruise ships stop in Nuremberg.
The main bus station is located near the main train station. You will usually only arrive by bus when departing from outside of Germany. (Eurolines has many connections to Nuremberg from different locations in Europe.)
