Going to the hotel

If you print this page, don't forget to print also the maps From_erlangen_mainstation_to_AB_Hotel.pdf and/or From_erlangen_mainstation_to_AB_Hotel_with_bus.pdf (see instructions below).

• In order to go from Nürnberg to Erlangen, you will need to buy a ticket "Tarifstufe 4" (3.80 €). If you just want to travel within Erlangen, you only need tickets "Tarifstufe K" (1.60 €).
• There are 2 sorts of multi-tickets that may be interesting for you:
• the so called "10er Streifenkarte" (9.40 €): it is a strip of 10 rectangles, that you can fold in order to stamp as much rectangles as you need (2 rectangles for "Tarifstufe K", 4 rectangles for "Tarifstufe 4")
• the so called "5er Streifenkarte (Kurzstrecke)" (6.80 €): it is a strip of 5 rectangles, that corresponds to 5 tickets "Tarifstufe K" (you stamp 1 rectangle for each trip, you can only use it for "Tarifstufe K")
• So, for example, if you arrive at (and leave from) Nürnberg and stay 3 days, you will need 2 x "Tarifstufe 4" (Nürnberg <-> Erlangen) and 6 x "Tarifstufe K" (Hotel <-> Institute), which is exactly what you get with one "10er Streifenkarte" (10 = 2 x 4 + 1 x 2) and one "5er Streifenkarte (Kurzstrecke)" (5 = 5 x 1). However, the "10er Streifenkarte" costs 0.20 € more than 2 x "Tarifstufe 4" + 1 x "Tarifstufe K".
 Einzelticket (single ticket) 10er Streifenkarte 5er Streifenkarte (K) Tarifstufe K 1.60 (2 rectangles) 1.88 (1 rectangle) 1.36 Tarifstufe 3 2.90 (3 rectangles) 2.82 Tarifstufe 4 3.80 (4 rectangles) 3.76
• Note that it is allowed to share a "Streifenkarte" between many passengers, each passenger stamping as much rectangles as he need.
