      Airport to Town by taxi

      Memmingen Jun 12, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      Hi, my husband and I want to rent a car from the airport for a week, to stay in Memmingen first for a couple of nights, and then travel further afield.

      However it seems that Wednesday is early closing day in the area, and none of the car rental companies are open when we arrive - on a Wednesday night at 7.30pm. Does anybody have any ideas how to get round this? or are there car hire offices in the town itself?

      If so this prompts my next question.. how much is it for a taxi from the airport into the town (direct to our hotel) and are there taxis always available at the airport, or do they need to be booked in advance?

      Thanks very much for any help... :)

      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.

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)?

Then travel from Steinach to Ansbach and change trains -- platform ? (5 minutes). Then Ansbach to Nurnberg HBF and change trains. My concern is in Nurnberg because I am sure the train station is very large. We only have 8 minutes and need to travel from platform 18 to platform 9. I have tried many searches but have not come across any good information. Please let me know if you have any insight on the best way to change platforms in Nurnberg and if the 8 minutes is enough.

      Family friendly accommodation in Nurnberg for early December

      We are planning to spend a few days in Nurnberg during the second week in December. We are a family of 4 (2 parents, with children aged 7 and 4), travelling with 2 grandparents, and are looking for value-for-money, family-friendly accommodation that is well located for public transport. We would ideally like 3 bedrooms, and the ability to self-cater would be a plus, but not essential. We would be happy to consider a gasthaus or an apartment, or perhaps there are other options that we haven't yet thought of?
