Getting connecting train in Nuremberg

My son is traveling from Prague to Munich on Sunday and has to change train in Nuremberg. He has ten min to get his connection. Is it simple? Any advise. Thanks

As always, if the first train is on time, he'll have no problems. If the first one is delayed only a few minutes he might miss the connecting train. If he has a ticket with saving fare he should ask the conductor to verify the delay on the ticket, so he can take the next train on his ticket, just in case.

He can take any train when you booked the standard fare.

There are many ICE-trains going from Nuremberg to Munich, so even if he misses his train he won't have to wait long. (usually no more than 30 minutes)

Ten minutes should be plenty of time.

On the German Rail website www.bahn.de he can punch in the particulars of his journey and then if he clicks on the "details" button, it will show him which platform he arrives at and from which he'll depart.

He can print out the details and bring it along.

If he indeed is taking a train from Prague to Nuremberg he can easily make the 10 minutes connection. But German Railway is also offering Bus connections that are considerably faster. But the bus station in Nuremberg is some 300 meters away from the train station. In that case 10 minutes would be a challange.

It is. But the DB ExpressBuses from Prague do not go there but stop directly at the main entrance of Nürnberg Hbf (the main train station). See map

10 min is plenty of time. The bus will be on time and stops right out front. We had the reverse connection with 9 min connection time - we had about 7 minutes to spare.
