Destinations rfrom Nurenberg

In a few weeks I'll be in Nuremberg where the plan was to take a train to Munich, spend a few days and catch our flight back to the U.S. My plans are being interrupted by a trade fair in Munich making it almost impossible to find a hotel, much less one not charging three times their normal rate. Would it be practical to rent a car in Nuremberg and sightsee other towns or would it be more practical to simply take trains to other sights? I'm hoping that those of you with some experience traveling in Germany would have a suggestion. Thank you in advance.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber - the ultimate medieval small town in Germany

http://www.rothenburg.de

Bamberg (UNESCO world heritage)

http://www.bamberg.info

Regensburg (UNESCO world heritage)

http://www.regensburg.de

Würzburg with the Residence (UNESCO world heritage)

http://www.wuerzburg.de

You can visit all these places by train.

For Rothenburg you can use a VGN TagesTicket Plus (EUR 14,00). A day ticket for 2 adults.

The other cities can be visited using the Bavaria Ticket. EUR 27,00 for 2-5 persons traveling together. Validity

Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day

Sa,So: from midnight till 3am next day

Both tickets cover only regional trains (S-Bahn, RB, RE). Plays for these short distances no big role however. But they do cover additionally all local public transport in all places: U-Bahn (metro - only Nuremberg), trams and buses.

you got excellent advice from above - is your flight from munich if so you are one hour from nurenberg to munich to catch your flight. depending on how much time you have sightsee in nuremberg taking the train for side trips to bamberg,regensberg,bayreuth,wurtzberg etc if you have the time - skip munich for sightseeing to another time and enjoy nuremberg. i am visiting nuremberg in september and spend a few days sightseeing in nuremberg and then take the train to the above side trips. have a nice trip
