Arriving Nuremberg via Bus ,

and we arrive at Nürnberg Hbf, Bahnhofvorpl. Hauptausgang

We were planning to stay close to the Nuremberg Main Station overnight, drop our bags off and have about 5 hours in afternoon to look around.

Next day we need to be at Nuremberg harbour -Ost by 2pm to embark on a Amadeus River Cruise.

Main question is how to get to the Harbour Ost, and how much would it be please. The cruise is offering transfer from airport only.

I'll be doing pretty much the same thing but arriving on the boat to Nuremberg. Could you help me with that information?

Go to www.vgn.de which is the website of the Nürnberg subway. Change the language to English in the upper right-hand corner. Now click on "Specified Route". You can enter "Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof" as your starting point here, and the address of your destination. Don't forget to add "Nürnberg", as there are other small cities in the vicinity, and if you don't add the city, you confuse the system and it will give you the wrong results.

The closest bus stop to the cruise ship piers is "Nürnberg Rotterdamer Str.". Single ticket local public transport in Nuremberg is EUR 2,50. You can buy tickets from the bus driver.

If you take a taxi this will cost approx. EUR 15.

If your ship is offering a free shuttle from the airport and you will be staying near the Hauptbahnhof, then simply take the U2 subway from the Hauptbahnhof to the airport and catch your shuttle there. Otherwise, public transport to the harbor is a bit complicated and a taxi will cost around €15.
