How to get to Fürth by airplane?

  • Fürth – Frankfurt (Code: FRA): approx. 225 km
  • Fürth – Stuttgart (Code STR): approx. 215 km
  • Fürth – München/Munich (Code: MUC): approx. 180 km
  • Fürth – Nürnberg/Nuremberg (Code: NUE): approx. 7 km

If you cannot fly to Nuremberg, here are some possible alternatives:

  • Frankfurt airport has a train station with high-speed trains going to Nuremberg nearly every hour (the journey takes about 2:20 hours to Nuremberg and another 8 minutes to Fürth);
  • Munich airport is far from the city centre - if you want to take the train, it takes about 40 minutes to the main train station, then 1:00 hour to Nuremberg and another 8 minutes to Fürth. Alternatively you can take a rental car. The trip to Fürth (180 km) takes about 2:00 hours
  • If you arrive in Stuttgart, you should hire a car and take the highways (the train connection is too complicated to be explained).

From Nuremberg Airport to Fürth

We recommend two possibilities to get from the airport in Nuremberg to Fürth:
-    taxi (about 10 to 15 minutes and 15 to 20 Euros)
-    take the metro U2 from Nuremberg Airport to ‘Plärrer’ and change to U1 until ‘Fürth Hauptbahnhof’ (central station; if you stay in a hotel nearby) or if you come directly to ILI get off at ‘Stadtgrenze’; there is also the possibility to get off at Nürnberg Central Station (‘Hauptbahnhof’) where you can find an office of the ‘Deutsche Bahn’ (national railway company), the tourist information and lots of different shops and cafés; you can also change to U1 here but you have to change floors within the station; PLEASE NOTICE: if you purchase a metro ticket at the ticket vending machine please choose ‘Preisstufe A’ (2,50 Euros) as this includes the cities Nürnberg-Fürth-Stein.

Getting to Fürth by train

There are no non-stop IC and ICE connections to Fürth from all directions. For trains see „From Nuremberg Airport to Fürth“.
If you get off at ‘Stadtgrenze’ just cross ‘Nürnberger Strasse’, turn left and walk till ‘Kurgartenstrasse’. Here you turn right and walk till ‘Dr.-Mack-Strasse’ which you can find on the left side. Please follow the street along the curve, pass the building ‘porticum’ and at the end of that building you turn right onto the driveway to the building ‘Technikum 2’ in which ILI is located.

There are several bus companies which connect many German cities and airports with the Nuremberg/Fürth area. Most of them start in Nuremberg, you could go there by metro/train (see ‘Getting to Fürth by train’ or ‘From Nuremberg Airport to Fürth).
