Location edit

The station is located on the border of the Nuremberg districts Bielingplatz and Wetzendorf and extends underground in east-west orientation across the Nordwestring (part of B4R) between Bielefelder Straße and Heimerichstraße. The building is located in a simple depth (7.70 m) below the earth's surface. At each platform end there is an elevator, as well as stairs and escalators, which are a direct link to the surface.[2] Behind the underground station, under Bielefelder Straße, there is a 170 m long, double-track tunnel, which is used as a parking or turning facility.[3]
