Public transport is quite good in Nuremberg. You can use the metro, tram or bus. Tickets are available at the vending
machines at the stops or the main station. We recommend buying a day ticket for one (TagesTicketSolo) or two people (Tages-TicketPlus). If you buy a day ticket on Saturday, Sunday is included for free. To travel inside of Nuremberg you need price level A. Most locations in the city center are in walking distance.

Only for some events you will have to pay your individual costs of the activies yourself (like rental fees/adminsion/public transport/...)
