bayernhafen Nürnberg provides customers and the companies operating from its port a high-performance, partly electrified port railway infrastructure equipped with a signalling control centre, and rail track totaling 54 km (12.5 km of which electrified) in length. For block trains, the rail infrastructure is directly connected to DB’s long-distance network and, for single-wagon traffic, via Nuremberg’s marshalling yard.

Expansion work carried out at the port marshalling yard enables block trains with a length of 700 m to enter and leave the yard. Almost all land in the west and east parts of bayernhafen and all quayside facilities are linked by rail to the port railway system.

bayernhafen’s rail network comprises a total of 54 km in length, and is one of the most extensive publicly accessible rail networks in Bavaria. This infrastructure is increasingly used by rail transport companies and freight forwarders for environmentally efficient rail-bound transport logistics. The high-performance infrastructure is rounded off by a total of 132 points, one port signalling control centre and the CT terminal.

bayernhafen provides its infrastructure to rail transport companies (RTCs) on a non-discriminatory and fee-paying basis. The RTCs are responsible for managing freight train transfers between the station and the port along with shunting operation within bayernhafen Nürnberg’s railway infrastructure.

A number of RTCs offer rail services at the Nuremberg location. We will be more than pleased to coordinate your enquiry.
