Public Transport in the Metropolitan Region Nuremberg

Nuremberg’s Central Railway Station is a main connecting point of Bavaria. In the meantime many long-distance trains on their journey to and from Munich stop over at Nuremberg.

Nuremberg has an international airport. Paris, Amsterdam, Istanbul and many other capitals of Europe are accessible from here almost every day. And of course vice versa. Nuremberg also offers fastest possibilities for your continuing journey. Every 10 minutes the Metro line ‘2’ takes you from the airport within 15 minutes to Nuremberg Central station in the Centre of the city on your arrival.

Continuing your journey within the metropolitan region of Nuremberg is easy with the transport association Nuremberg GmbH (VGN)

From Nuremberg Central Railway Station, a regional-express with a few stops runs daily every 60 minutes to Bayreuth and vice versa. In addition, the Deutsche Bahn offers a cross-border Inter-Regio-Express, the Franken-Sachsen-Express that goes directly from Nuremberg to Bayreuth. Please link to the plan of the VGN for exact departure times.

By Car

The journey by car through the network of federal highways is straightforward. Directly located on the large South East Express Way ‘A 9’ Munich – Berlin, Bayreuth is easily accessible without large detours from many German cities. But even when you are coming from the West the Wagner city is easily reachable. Here the ‘A 70’ by Werneck (near Wuerzburg) connects directly to Bayreuth
