Discover Erlangen

Stand: 13.06.2024

There is a lot to see in Bavaria's smallest city with around 120,000 inhabitants.

With its wide streets and many baroque buildings, Erlangen is one of the best-preserved baroque planned towns in Germany. In addition to the many restaurants and cafés that invite you to meet up with friends and acquaintances, there is also a good cultural offering.

Oberbürgermeister Florian Janik

Lord Mayor Florian Janik: "We enjoy coming together at the Bergkirchweih, at exciting festivals such as the Comic Salon, the Poetry Festival or the Puppet Theater Festival and, last but not least, in the many sports, cultural and leisure clubs. We are committed and this is what makes Erlangen a city worth living in and loving."

Mayor Jörg Volleth: "Despite its manageable size, Erlangen has many beautiful corners. You can discover some of them on a leisurely stroll through our pretty old town or on a bike tour of Erlangen's historic districts. What also makes Erlangen special for me is all the greenery in and around our city."
