French "savoir vivre" in Franconia: In the 17th century, the Margrave Christian Ernst built the new town of “Christian Erlang” right next to the medieval town Old Erlang to accommodate French Huguenots.

To this day, Christian Erlang is one of the best preserved baroque-era planned cities in Germany. It also serves as a monument of European importance and is the lively inner city of modern Erlangen. Recently, Erlangen has developed as the high-tech center.
