Airport Overview

Nuremberg Airport, Nurnberg in German, is located close to the city of Nuremberg. The tenth-busiest in Germany and a hub for Air Berlin, the airport serves about four million passengers per year.

Flights to Nurnberg Airport come in from across Germany as well as major European hubs, the Canary Islands, Egypt and tourist spots on the Mediterranean.

Overall, this is a small and efficient airport, with just enough stores and eateries to keep you busy, as well as good public transport links to the city centre. Like any airport, however, queues can occasionally build up at peak times.

Terminal Transfer

This is a fairly compact airport, split into two floors. There are arrivals and departures gates on both floors in two terminals, which are within easy walking distance of each other.

Getting into Town

Train: There is a train station at the airport. The U2 subway line takes just 12 minutes to get to the central station and leaves every 15 minutes or so. A day ticket costs €4.20.

Bus: There is a bus station just in front of the entrance to Terminal 1. The No. 32 runs to the bus and tram stop at Thon between 5am and midnight.

Taxi: Taxis are available 24/7. The average fare to the city centre is €16.

Car Parking

With more than 9,000 parking spaces in three multi-storey car parks and several open-air lots, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot at Nurnberg Airport. All facilities are a mere five-minute walk from the terminal building, although the short-term car parks (P1, P2 and P3) are closest, just outside the main entrance to the airport. P12, P7 and P31 are further away and have cheaper long-term rates for holiday parking. Parking in all lots costs €2 for the first half hour, €4 for an hour and thereafter €2 for each additional hour, with a daily maximum of €20, or €36 for two days. If you’ll be staying longer, the daily rates differ from car park to car park from the third day, with P12 being the cheapest.

Information Desks

There’s an information desk in the centre of the arrivals section on the ground floor, and another near the observation deck on the first floor.

Airport Facilities

Money and communications: ATMs and currency exchange.

Luggage: There’s a lost-luggage desk in the arrivals section on the ground floor. The information desk also doubles as a lost-and-found desk.

Conference and business: The airport has eight conference rooms which can seat up to 200 people. The Movenpick Hotel (directly opposite the terminal) also has conference and business facilities. There are also a couple of lounges with business facilities such as the Noris Sky Lounge (€ 15 per person, or free for First-Class or Business-Class passengers).

Other facilities: Multi-faith prayer room, baby-changing facilities, children’s play areas (near gates A25 and A14), travel agents, post box, hairdresser.

Wi-Fi: There is Wi-Fi coverage at the airport, although it’s not free. Access the airport’s SkyLan service and pay for your browsing session through Vodafone, T-Mobile, Sprint or iPass. You can also buy a pre-paid card from the Airport Shop, which will get you an hour of surfing for €8.
