Nuremberg’s transportation system is excellent. The city has an airport, but it is also well connected to all other airports in Germany and is also easy to reach via bus or train.

An overview of all travel options including schedules and prices can be searched for on this website .

Our local public transport system is well developed. You can reach your lodging and our campus quickly from the main railway station, airport, or the central bus station. All information about local public transport is available on the website of the VGN (Verkehrsverbund Großraum Nürnberg).

Information about our university campus and directions is available on our website.

Accommodation costs are not included in the participation fee for the Ohm International Summer School. You must make your own accommodation arrangements.

In Nuremberg, there are many options for lodging in hotels, hostels, or from private providers. Prices vary greatly. In any case, you should budget around 500 euros for lodging. We recommend you look for and book lodgings directly after the application phase, as Nuremberg is a popular destination in the summer and inexpensive accommodations are often booked out quickly.

We are in contact with a number of lodging providers and will provide information on this page in good time.


Adequate insurance coverage is required to participate in the Ohm International Summer School. Your regular insurance may not provide for adequate coverage if you travel abroad; therefore you may need to have additional travel insurance. Please be sure to secure a suitable health insurance policy so you can enjoy your time with us without worry.
