How will I get around in Nuremberg?

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.

For more information check: www.vag.de

If you want you can buy tickets in advance at their online shop(print at home): https://shop.vgn.de

It's also possible use the local bike rental system: http://www.norisbike.de

Do I need to pay for it?

No, this event is completly based on donations, but also relies on it. Without your donations it would not be possible to cover the costs of this weekend.

You are welcome to join all the activites for free. If you want to support us, just donate what you want, can afford, or what you feel the event is worth to you.

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

Do I need to get a wristband?

No, we decided to offer all the activities for free.

There are no wristband only events anymore. Just join what you like. Of course we'll apreciate if you show your support by donating what you want, can afford, or what you feel the event is worth to you, to help us cover the costs.
