While Nuremberg’s atmospheric old town is ideally explored on foot, your best bet for covering the rest of the city is from behind the wheel of a rental car. Head outside the city walls to explore cultural gems and modern shopping centres, and to glimpse authentic local life away from the crowds.
Hiring a car for your trip to Nuremberg opens up the wider Franconia region, part of Northern Bavaria, for you to explore at your own pace. This diverse corner of Germany is perfect road-tripping territory and Nuremberg makes the ideal base.
Nuremberg is surrounded by vineyards, ancient villages and perfectly preserved Medieval towns, and you might even stumble across a UNESCO World Heritage site. If you’re a hiker or and cyclist, you could load a hire car with your gear and head out to the national parks, hillside nature trails and lakes, all in easy reach of Nuremberg centre.
For an easy arrival in Nuremberg, book your car hire in advance and pick up your keys at the airport when you land. If you would rather arrange a car rental when you get there, head for the desks in the airport arrivals hall, where you will find major international brands like Hertz, Avis and Sixt. From the airport, it is a straightforward drive to the city centre via motorway Bundesautobhan 3 and the journey shouldn’t take any more than 20 minutes.
