    Appart from it, could anyone reccomend me gluten-free restaurants in the area?

  • Travel Nuremberg to Budapest

    by Ianjarvis Online Now Sep 8, 2016 at 5:03 PM

    13th October I am hoping to have one day to take in some sights of Nuremberg and then the following morning 14th October I want to get a train to Budapest and then get myself to Budapest Port Pier Mahart Drava 2. by late afternoon.
    Is this doable? Which hotels would I look at in Nuremberg to overnight and be handy for train departure early next morning. Which train would I get and do I have to change trains anywhere? How do I then get from train station in Budapest to the Port? If this is not doable I would need to skip Nuremberg and go straight to Budapest and overnight Budapest. Any help would be much appreciated. aussie first time traveller to europe.

    Birthday dinner

    by manuna Online Now Jun 2, 2016 at 7:05 AM

    Could you please recommend a restaurant where we can have a family dinner to celebrate a birthday. I would prefer it value for money place. Local cuisine (but not obligatory), may be with some cozy (or interesting) atmosphere. I'm more interested in dessert-menu, but my male part of the family will be more interested in meat :)
    We'll be staying not far from Franken Str., but any plce within the ring will do.
    If this is important, it will be August.

    Hotel Sorat vs Burghotel

    by DaveSamaroo Online Now Nov 5, 2015 at 11:30 PM

    Dear Forum, we will be in Nuremberg for Christmas Market Dec 17th - 22nd, family of 5 with 3 kids 8, 10 and 13. We are trying to decide between Hotel Sorat and Burghotel. Both have great reviews. Hotel Sorat is closer to Xmas market and modern but offers only separate rooms while Burghotel offers 3 bedroom apartment living so everyone together.

    Just wondering if anyone has hand-on experience with both to help break the deadlock. Thanks

    I have marked some very beautiful spots in Nurnberg but what about this 'Kettensteg"? I don't mean the restaurant but the complex with the bridges and the beautiful scenery(coordinates 49.45449, 11.07087). How can one reach this place? There seem to be some stairs going down (coordinates 49.45501, 11.07039). Is this the way to see it better? Thank you.

  • 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.

    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?
