Erlangen & Bergkirchweih

Yes, but you've been there to make up your mind! It is exactly the differences to other cities of its size that I say make it potentially interesting for ... the "specialist" Franconian tourist. I.e. the one who wants to see something different and has seen everything else already.

Like Bamberg, Erlangen escaped the war in nearly pristine condition. Or pristine except for that bridge in Bamberg and the N├╝rnberger Tor in Erlangen, the latter irreparably damaged by a US tank during occupation. Driver may have been drunk.

I've only been to Ansbach once...would I recommend it? Dunno, I suppose I need to go back again.

Just remembered, today is the start of the Erlanger Bergkirchweih. I may go tomorrow lunchtime for a bit of oxenmeat. And Weiherer from keg. I was reminded of it by seeing several girls out and about in Dirndls just now. Some, indeed, already pre-loading on the lager on the way up there.

Watch the tapping of the free barrel live.
