Nuremberg Cruise Port Directions
From Nuremberg Airport to your ship:
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.
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.
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 , a journey of about 23 minutes.
At Röthenbach, transfer from the U-Bahn to Bus 67 toward , using your existing ticket.
Get off the bus at (the bus stop is on a bridge, with the port below alongside the Main-Danube Canal). Bus journey time is about 11 minutes.
Cross the bridge, passing the large yellow traffic sign just beyond the bus stop.

At the end of the bridge, turn right after the white "Personenschifffahrt / River Cruise Terminal" arrow sign and follow the road downhill.
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.)
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.)
If your ship isn't ready to receive you, not to worry: You can have a snack and a beer at , which is located just above the waterfront pedestrian and bike paths.
