Park-and-ride is the ideal solution for those who want to avoid rush-hour traffic and the trip to the exhibition grounds, but would rather not leave their car behind entirely.
The Nuremberg area includes 11 park-and-ride facilities with a total of nearly 2,000 parking spaces. With a valid transport pass, you can leave your vehicle at one of these park-and-ride facilities for up to 48 hours and continue on to the exhibition grounds safely and comfortably by bus or train.
