FAU’s two main sites, the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg, are located at the heart of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region. Both Erlangen with its 100,000 inhabitants, former home of the Huguenots and a key location for Siemens, and Nuremberg, a city with a population of half a million and a metropolitan flair, have their own unique charms. The opera, theatre and museums, along with a lively pub scene and night life, offer plenty of opportunities to relax after a day in the lecture theatre, lab or library.
Erlangen and Nuremberg both lie on major train routes and are served by long-distance ICE trains and regional trains. Timetables are available from Deutsche Bahn and the local public transport provider VGN.
Nuremberg, Fürth and Erlangen are all accessible via the A73 motorway (Frankenschnellweg).
Underground trains run directly from Nuremberg airport to the centre of Nuremberg, where there are connections to trains and the public transport network.
Nuremberg and Erlangen are bicycle-friendly cities and cycling is a great way to travel short distances between locations.
