travelling from Frankfurt flughafen to Nuremberg


Could anybody help us? My husband and I are travelling to Frankfurt and from there to Nuremberg on a friday and then back to Frankfurt on a sunday. Could you please tell us which is the cheapest way? We know about the bayern ticket but we do not know if we can buy it at Frankfurt Flughaffen or on the internet

Thanks so much!!!!

The Bayern ticket is no good from the FRA Flughafen. Frankfurt is in the state of Hessen, Nuernberg in Bayern.There is a way ( buy a regular ticket Frankfurt to Kahl and the Bayern Ticket for the Nuernberg portion), but I would advise against it. Rather, go on www.bahn.de, 92 days before the day of your trip from FRA. buy a ticket on that website to Nujerjnberg and another one 2 days later for the return on Sunday. These are heavily discounted tickets, and you can travel on the faster ICE or IC trains rather on the slower Regio trains which qualify for the Bayern Ticket. You then can alos reserve seats on these faster trains.

Be aware that 'savings' tickets are only valid for the trains they are booked for, i.e. if your flight is late and you miss your train you will have to buy a new ticket at normal fare.

If your airline partner with Rail&Fly that could be a better option.
