Erlangen is situated in Middle Franconia. It is in a perfect location for several nice bike rides. A slow pace can take you to Bamberg in less than three hours, which is listed as a World historical city by UNESCO. In addition the woods to the south have wonderful attractions. These woods connect Erlangen and Nuremburg. In the woods you can find the stone quarry where they took the stones to build the Castle in Nuremburg. There is also a man made hill which was used by the Germans as training grounds to shoot at and the hill would stop the bullets. Eventually the US military used it for practice shooting. It is a wonderful hill which you can bike to the top of and see both Erlangen and Nuremburg. The picture below is of my girlfriend on a trip to Bamberg.
Sunday's until 5 pm (!)
Most of the bars (my living grounds) are closed, street population decreases... Do not miss the 'still life' in Erlangen as seen in the photo shot by me one sunday morning.
Ok...I admit there are nice activities as well; the bazaar, live music at some bars, nice old buildings, etc... 'Kulisse' was closed, that was the problem for me.
For electrically-inclined people, it is worth noting that the inventor of Ohm's Law - Georg Simon Ohm is from Erlangen! There is a house in the middle of Erlangen town with his name on it.
