Barbecue areas & leisure facilities in the city

Especially when the weather is nice, we enjoy the days outside - doing sports, partying or simply relaxing on the grass.

There are many great options in Erlangen. During the day, Bohlenplatz is a great place in the middle of the city for sports and games or simply a picnic. But beware: there is a ban on barbecues and alcohol. Between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., special consideration must also be given to local residents. There are great alternatives with the barbecue areas in the city. Our interactive map shows you where they are located.

Erlangen also offers numerous opportunities to spend your free time together outdoors in the countryside. Whether playing, doing sports or lying in the sun - our leisure facilities invite you to linger.

But one request: Please be considerate of your surroundings in all places where you spend time - in other words, please avoid noise and dirt. Thank you for taking part.
