We are located in the south of Germany, in the university town of Erlangen. The larger medieval city of Nuremberg is within 20km distance.
By plane, it is most convenient to fly into the airport of Nuremberg (NUE), which then has connections to Erlangen via bus (about 30min), subway and train (about 50min), or taxi (20min).
From within Germany, you can reach Erlangen by train. Most fast long-distance trains (ICE) go to Nuremberg, where you switch to a regional train or an S-Bahn.
