Special Regulations For Buses


On this page you will find an overview of the bus stops and parking spaces for tour buses in the city of Nuremberg.Please note that the Nuremberg Old Town has a medieval character with many narrow streets. Hence there is no possibility within the Old Town to allow a large number of tour buses to drop off and pick up passengers.On the edge of the Old Town there are a number of bus stops and short-term parking spaces available at Vestnertorgraben, Grasersgasse and Spittlertorgraben, from which your passengers can reach all the important sights in the Nuremberg Old Town within 15 minutes.

Use of Augustinerstraße for persons with limited mobility

Entry to the Augustinerstraße via Hallertor and use of the bus stop lane there is fundamentally prohibited.

We therefore ask you to use the bus parking places at the Vestnertorgraben or in the Grasersgasse.

Entry to the Augustinerstraße for mobility-impaired persons is only possible under the following conditions:

For buses with mobility-impaired persons, access is possible in individual cases by means of a fee-based access permit (issued in accordance with §46 StVO). The permit can only be booked online at:

There you will find a user handbook with detailed explanations of all functions and an FAQ section. To receive a permit, you must pay a fee which is based on current regulations. If you cancel your reservation, your fee cannot be refunded due to German law.

Each permit is valid only once and only for the requested time slot. This permit must be shown to the security staff at the Augustinerstraße. A separate permit is required for drop off or pick up of guests.

If you enter the Augustinerstraße without a valid permit or exceed your time slot, it is considered a misdemeanor offence. The city of Nuremberg reserves the right to prosecute this offence. In the case of a repeat offence, the city of Nuremberg will review whether to issue future permits to an offender.

Please not the following obligatory regulations on driving through the Old Town:

  • Tours which do not have the Old Town as their primary focus (for example tours to the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds) should head for the bus stops in Grasersgasse or at Vestnertorgraben, if a short visit to the Old Town is desired.
  • The shuttle service to the cruise ship harbor uses the pick-up and drop-off point in Grasersgasse exclusively.
  • If several buses are used, mobility-impaired persons should be concentrated in one bus, so that special access can be reduced to a minimum.
  • The bus arrives in the Augustinerstraße only at the specified pick-up time. Waiting there for guests is not possible.

Use of Augustinerstraße for persons with limited mobility during the Christmas Market

The current 9 am to 6 pm ban on bus traffic in the Augustinerstraße will be extended throughout the entire day during the Christmas Market (November 25 to December 24, 2022). For buses with mobility-impaired persons, entry in exceptional cases will still be possible, but a special access permit must be obtained for every entry (including those after 6 pm and before 9 am).
