Nuremberg Taxi Fares

Nuremberg taxi fares are set and regulated by the state, which makes taxi services in the city very reliable. All taxis are equipped with a taximeter that the driver must set to the base fare before the ride starts and use during the whole journey. There is only a single tariff that applies every day, throughout the day:

Base Fare – €3.70
Rate/km up to 5 km – €2.20
Rate/km >5 km – €1.60

To make your fare calculation easier, Nuremberg is divided into 6 zones. Zones 1 and 2 are within city limits and the rates mentioned above apply. For journeys that go through areas outside the city limits (Zones 3 to 6), a surcharge from €10 to €40 applies; the further you go, the higher the surcharge.

You should keep in mind, though, that there can be additional charges, like the waiting time fee, which amounts to €28 per hour, and a cancellation fee equal to the base fare of €3.70 in case you call a taxi but eventually don’t use it. Finally, ordering a larger taxi, like a station wagon or a minivan over the phone or through an app will cost from €2.50 to €7.50 extra, depending on the number of travellers.

Pre-book your Taxi in Nuremberg

Even though taxis in Nuremberg are available 24/7, if you need one during peak hours, you might have to wait for some time.

To avoid that and reach your destination quickly, you can pre-book your Nuremberg taxi with Welcome Pickups. That way, you won’t have to worry about waiting around, having to pay in cash or what the taximeter may add up to. Plus, you’ll have a friendly English-speaking driver and a private vehicle at your disposal for a comfortable, personalised ride.
