Nuremberg Airport Rental Cars and Driving Guide.....

There are currently five rental car agencies that you'll find upon arriving at the Nuremberg Airport.  These include Budget, Alamo, Europcar, SIxt and Avis.  Each car rental company occupies a desk in the arrivals area of the airport, not far from the baggage claim area.  They are also located right next to the exit area.  Cars are found in the car rental center, across from the terminal exit.  We always recommend speaking to your car rental agent to get exact walking directions to your rental vehicle.

Directions to Nuremberg from the Airport...

After hopping in the rental car, most folks are headed to the city center of Nuremberg.  To get there, you need to know that Nuremberg is approximately 8.5 km or 20-25 minutes from the airport.

First, you will want to get on Flughafenstraße (this translates 'airport road' and is the road that taxis you out of the airport area).  Make a right at the second cross street go down to the end of the street and turn left.  At the turning circle take the first exit at Flughafenstraße again. Drive for about one kilometer.  Make a left at Marienbergstraße.  You'll only be able to go left or right and there will be orange and white directional signs on the far side of the 3 way intersection.  Drive for 1.7 km. then make a right on Ziegelsteinstraße.

Make another right on Äußere Bayreuther Straße/B2 and follow this road for 1.7 km.  Äußere Bayreuther Straße/B2 turns into Rathenauplatz, Laufertorgraben, Steubenbrücke in succession for around 2 km.  Make a left on Marienstraße and you'll be driving between business buildings.  Marienstraße turns into Scheurlstraße.  Make a right on Glockenhofstraße - Heideloffstraße and you are in the city.

Nuremberg Airport Car Rental Return...

When driving your rental vehicle back to the airport, you will essentially reverse the directions above.  Remember to refuel your car before returning it to the Nuremberg Airport.  To do so, we generally recommend that you re-fuel a couple of km from the airport at a Shell Petrol Station on Marienstraße.  If coming from Ziegelsteinstraße and turning left onto Marienstraße, there will be a Shell Station just after you turn onto Marienstraße on the right-hand side of the road.  There is easy access in and out of the station.
