The profit has helped stabilise the club after they recorded a loss of 5.3m euros for the previous 12 months.
A successful season in which Nuremberg qualified for Europe, boosting television revenue and gate receipts, were behind the results.
"After the last two difficult business years, our aim was to consolidate Nuremberg financially in the mid-term," Roy Wolf, the club's financial director, said at a press conference in the city's trade fair centre.
"These results for the 2010/11 financial year mean Nuremberg have produced the best operating results in years and taken a great step forwards.
"We want to continue along this route in the future."
The Bavarian club currently lie just two points behind the top six after eight games of the season.
