Getting there

Travel options

Nuremberg is located in the strong economic region of South Germany and enjoys good transport connections. The city can be reached easily and conveniently by air, rail and road. From the main station/inner city it takes just 8 minutes to get the exhibition centre with a direct underground rail connection. The venue is also easy to reach from the airport, with a journey time of just 25 minutes.


There are numerous parking facilities without long queues and more than 13,500 parking spaces, including around 6,500 within walking distance of the exhibition halls and congress centres (3,000 such spots in directly adjacent multi-storey car parks). There are another 4,000 parking spaces available in the immediate vicinity.


The city and region of Nuremberg offer an efficient hotel infrastructure to meet all requirements. There are more than 25,000 beds available in all categories, from luxurious five-star hotels in the city centre to comfortable congress hotels right next to the exhibition centre.

City information

Nuremberg, a metropolitan region in Bavaria, is known to many people for its gingerbread, Bratwurst sausages, toys, Christmas market, historic old town and the home of football club 1 FC Nuremberg. But did you know that Nuremberg is also the centre of European consumer and market research? Or that the city has excellent museums and a thriving cultural scene? And that the Nuremberg region is the fourth most attractive location for doing business in Germany? Companies like Siemens, FRONERI Schöller, Faber-Castell, Adidas, Schwan-Stabilo, Puma and Datev have long since recognised the benefits of this location.
