Erlangen is a Bavarian city in Middle Franconia. The “new town” was founded in 1686 as a planned city to enable the settlement of Huguenots who were persecuted in France. Today Erlangen‘s economy is shaped by the Friedrich-Alexander University and Siemens, whose health division is based in the city.
