Erlangen is not Berlin, Munich or Hamburg, but it’s still a very nice place to be. Whether you choose to get a coffee in the lovely old town just next to the Schlossgarten-the castle garden, go for a stroll in the city visiting small and big shops or enjoy a night at the theater – if you venture into the city center or the old town, you’ll be rewarded. You prefer tall trees and outcrops to picturesque houses? For those of you who enjoy nature, you’ll feel right at home in the surrounding area of this charming student city.

Bergkirchweih, Erlangen’s city fair

As predictable as bird migration to the South – When flocks of people go up the “Berg” (mountain in German), we know in Erlangen: The Bergkirchweih is taking place again. Young and old meet at the beer cellars among culinary delights and fairground rides, and later in the evening they meet again at the city center pubs. Empty streets and just the buzzing from the Kirchweih in the distance. People in Erlangen love their fair so much that the “Berg-Tuesday” has actually been imposed as an unofficial holiday.
