From Nuremberg Airport to your ship:

Nuremberg Airport U-Bahn ticket machines

After you've collected your luggage at Nuremberg Airport, follow the "U" signs to the U-Bahn station in front of the terminal.

Before going downstairs to the trains, buy a single-trip ticket from the multilingual vending machines.

(Don't bother with the station search on the machine--just pick the standard "Preisstufe A" or "Tarifstufe A" fare, which is good within Nuremberg's urban area)

For more information on U-Bahn, tram, and bus travel in Nuremberg (including an interactive journey planner), visit www.vag.de/en.

Nuremberg VAG ticket stamping machine

If you're using a single-journey ticket or Einzelfahrkarte, you shouldn't need to validate it (single-journey tickets are valid from 90 minutes from purchase), but stamping machines are provided for other kinds of tickets or for passengers who'd rather be safe than sorry.

Nuremberg U-Bahn U2 train

Go downstairs and board a train. (Nuremberg Flughafen/Airport is the starting point for Line U2, so a train should be waiting in the station.)

Take the train to the end of the line at Röthenbach, a journey of about 23 minutes.

At Röthenbach, transfer from the U-Bahn to Bus 67 toward Frankenstrasse, using your existing ticket.

VAG Haltestelle Rotterdamer Strasse

Get off the bus at Rotterdamer Strasse (the bus stop is on a bridge, with the port below alongside the Main-Danube Canal). Bus journey time is about 11 minutes.

Sign on bridge near Nuremberg Cruise Port

Cross the bridge, passing the large yellow traffic sign just beyond the bus stop.

(You'll see a reference to the cruise terminal at the bottom of the sign.)

This panoramic photo shows a view of the cruise port from the bridge, with the curving road that leads down to the waterfront.

Bridge at Rotterdamer Strasse

At the end of the bridge, turn right after the white "Personenschifffahrt / River Cruise Terminal" arrow sign and follow the road downhill.

Road to Nuremberg Cruise Port

You'll pass a parking lot and a sign directing you to the waterfront, which is just around the bend.

(The grade is gentle, so you shouldn't have any problem rolling your suitcase.)

Path to berths 1-3 at Nuremberg cruise port

Nuremberg Cruise Port

The road or adjacent paths will lead you to the waterfront, where ships are at numbered berths.

If your ship is at berth 6 to 10, walk toward the higher-numbered markers when you reach the waterfront.

(The highest-numbered berths are beyond the bridge.)

Ushis Treff Nuremberg

If your ship isn't ready to receive you, not to worry:

You can have a snack and a beer at Uschis Treff, which is located just above the waterfront pedestrian and bike paths.
