City trips through Nuremberg

City trips through Nuremberg

VGN.de
To travel through Nuremberg, the most cost-efficient to buy the travel ticket (Zone A) for public transport. You can travel free of charge by metro during the exhibition by showing a ticket of a visitor to BioFach. Therefore, if you do not plan other trips, you can save on the travel ticket.

But if you don`t want to be restricted only by metro trips, choose the 7-Tage-MobiCard ticket. It costs EUR 26.70, valid for 7 days and gives you the possibility to use all types of public transport, except for a taxi. It can be purchased at the airport on the day of arrival. But we advise you to order it online on the website or through the mobile application of the carrier since after the flight you can stand in long queues to the "ticket machines".

Internet, mobile communications and nutrition
You will need the Internet both at the exhibition and while walking through the Nuremberg. There are two options – to buy a one-time card, which costs EUR 20-30, or you can use Ukrainian mobile operator roaming options. For example, if you top up your Vodafone account for UAH 500.00, you will receive 500 MB, 500 minutes for calls and 500 SMS & MMS in all directions. For planned calls and navigator application, it will be quite enough.

If you visit BioFach 2019, there is no sense to buy a tourist card in Nuremberg. It gives you only two free trips and two free tickets to the museums, and costs around EUR 28. Spending the same amount you will have a travel ticket for all types of transport.

To plan your meal and a "cultural program" so that at least roughly calculate the amount required, you can use the Internet services for the tourists, forums or guides. Alternatively, you can try to find food outlets offering good prices at www.tripadvisor.ru.
