    • Xmas markets - Nuremberg, Bamberg, Rothenburg

      by ramot418 Online Now Nov 2, 2014 at 11:09 PM

      Planning 2½-3 days based in Nuremberg during the first week of December.
      One day planned for Bamberg, one day for Rothenburg and one day for Nuremberg.
      The impression I get from travel forums is the the Nuremberg Xmas market is one of the better (and bigger) ones in Germany. There are also Xmas markets in Bamberg and Rothenburg.

      My question is: From personal experience, would you try to spend as much time as possible at the Nuremberg market at the expense of time in the Bamberg and Rothenburg markets? That is, should I leave Bamberg/Rothenburg for Nuremberg relatively early (15:00-16:00) after seeing their respective markets, in order to have more time at the Nuremberg market? I know the Nuremberg market is open until 21:00. How would you divide your time?

    • Nuremberg to Bamberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber by public transport

      by ramot418 Online Now Oct 29, 2014 at 10:44 PM

      Planning 2 separate day trips (with wife) to Bamberg and Rothenburg from the Leipziger Platz area of Nuremberg.

      Originally, I planned to use my DB 'twin pass' to each destination, since the cost for the added days is much cheaper than individual train tickets for the 2 of us. However, now I see another option: The VGN Day Ticket (price level 10). According to the VGN web site, the one ticket costs €17.50 and is good for the both of us, that is, it is a 'twin' ticket in our case.

      (1) Can someone from the Nuremberg area confirm that the VGN Day Ticket includes both Bamberg and Rothenburg and that it would indeed cost us only €17.50 per day for BOTH of us?
      (2) I understand from the site that the VGN Day Ticket includes all travel on the Nuremberg area U-bahn, S-bahn, and buses, so that with that ticket we can both travel from Leipziger Platz to the Nuremberg Hbf, then to Bamberg or Rothenburg, return to Leipziger Platz in Nuremberg, then go out for that same evening somewhere in Nuremberg - all costing us only €17.50?
      (3) If the above is correct, where can one buy the VGN Day Ticket? At any U- or S-bahn station?
      (4) Getting to Rothenburg by train is somewhat of a nuisance and inefficient, as one has to transfer TWICE for such a short journey. Is there an alternate public transport way to get there (e.g., bus) which is direct and also included in the VGN Day Ticket?

      I thank you very much.

      We will be arriving in Nürnberg (late June) via Viking Cruise Line, and traveling on to Prague. Because we are taking a diversion from the Viking package, we will be on our own regarding transportation to the Nürnberg train or bus station. Can anybody in the VT community tell us how to get from the boat docks to the central stations?

      P+R, one day in the city between Regensburg and Metz

      by 68maciek Online Now Feb 11, 2014 at 1:57 AM

      Which P+R will be the most convenient if I will drive from Regnesburg to Metz? I guess there is not so wise to go into the center of Nurnberg by car. Is that right? As soon as we are in the center we probably better use feet than a public transport ;-). So as a group of three we need 6 S/U Bahn tickets. Is it possible to buy 5-rides tickets as a bulk an one regular?

      Any recommendation for a fast food like exotic (not kebab ;-) or real Bavarian in the Old City more for locals than for tourists? Can you get something warm, good and interesting at butcher shops at lunch?

      Is there not so obvious place in the old town which is interesting to see?

      A few days in Nürnberg

      by Crazywoman Online Now Feb 27, 2011 at 1:25 AM

      Will be on a road trip in Germany this summer and Nürnberg is on the list. I have been there for business a few times already, but have unfortunately not been able to see much of the city during those visits. I have seen enough though to know that I want to see more!

      I would like tips on accomodation. Could stay in the city centre or in the outskrits if the public transportations are easily available. A place with a little more "soul" than the big chain hotels would be nice.

      We have already put a couple of museums and the castle on the to do list, but if you want to share your favorite Nürnberg activity that would be nice (museums, restaurants, activities etc)

      Would also like tips on day trips from Nürnberg to neighbouring cities, nature experiences, wine yards, breweries etc. Will be traveling by car, but could also use public transportation if this is available.

      Finally here is my other questions regarding the road trip, any comments to them are also appreciated.

      The hotels in Nuremberg are completely booked during the days I need to visit. Can you recommend a reasonably priced hotel on a train-stop 20-30 Kilometers that is walking distance from the train-stop? Better yet, can you tell me what towns are on train-stops 20-30 kilometers NORTH of Nuremberg?

    • Restaurant advice and Name this Bar!?

      by stuartd71 Online Now Nov 24, 2010 at 9:53 AM

      Four of us (late 30’s) are visiting Nuremberg mid December for the Christmas market. It’s about five years since we last visited. Can anyone offer advice on the following three restaurants on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday? We want somewhere reasonably enjoyable, memorable, fun, friendly, modern/nice décor, decent food etc. (We’ve been to places like Bratwurst Roslein previously so don’t want a very ‘traditional’ restaurant.)

      S’baggers - seems a bit quirky but is it worth the trip out to an industrial estate?
      Padelle D’italia - seems to have good reviews but website pictures look a bit dull inside!
      Etage - Thai restaurant – can’t find anything about the building and atmosphere?

      Also, can anyone identify the bar/club that we went to last time we were there? I can’t seem to find anything on Google or Google Maps that identifies it! Somewhere near the castle and Albrecht Durer Haus there’s quite a long wide (cobbled?) street that runs downhill. It’s got various bars (several Irish bars I think?) and others on either side (big stone buildings). At the bottom on the left there’s a bar/club that is on the corner. It was quite cramped inside, a bit studenty, lots of wood panelling with a central bar in a square shape that you could access from pretty much all sides. It was split into almost little rooms, with a dance floor at the back.

      Any ideas?!

      Affordable ski stuff in Nuremberg?

      We're coming to Nuremberg in early December for the Christkindlmarkt and are then going skiing.

Can anyone provide a tip on where we can buy these affordably - preferably near the city centre as we are staying close to the Hauptbanhof. We're not at all brand conscious, but are looking to get value for money (By the way, we are two adults and two kids, aged 7 and 4)?
