Flying to Nuremberg
Nuremberg’s is the 10th busiest airport in Germany, but it has a nice selection of routes from around Europe.
The airport is conveniently linked to the city with a metro line. In fact, you can reach the conference venue (Hotel Maritim,next to the railway station) within 15 minutes.
Flying to another aiport in Germany
If you live outside Europe, you’ll be better off flying to a major airport such as Munich, Berlin, or Frankfurt, and find a connect ground transport from there.
Bavarian capital Munich is well-served by a wide range of European and intercontintental routes. Flixbus runs a direct service from the airport to Nuremberg in less than 2 hours from 19.99€, or you can take an S-bahn from Munich aiport to Munich railway station, and catch a connecting intercity train to Nuremberg from there, but this costs much more (and takes only slightly less time) than the bus. Btw, the bus terminal in Nuremberg is located right next to the railway station (i.e. walking distance from the conference venue).
Flixbus also connects Frankfurt airport to Nuremberg, with services starting from 9.99€ for the 4-hour ride. You can also find direct trains from the airport to Nuremberg for under 30€ (if you buy the ticket at least a couple of months in advance) for the 2:30 ride.
If you fly to Berlin (Tegel), you can catch an airport bus to the central station (20 minutes, 2.80€), from where a new express service can get you to Nuremberg in 3:15 hours, with tickets starting from 19:99 (again, only if you book months in advance).
