“Erlangen is a small german city quite children friendly with playgrounds everywhere, green areas and very easy to walk around. The cities of Nuremberg, Bamberg, Wuzwurg or Ratisbona are pretty close by for tourism. But the best and most recommended thing is Jenne\'s family, especilly Andreas with whom I had a friendly easygoing contact from the beginning. Very helpful and giving all kind of suggestions and info. He picked us up at the airport and had the opportunity to meet his lovely family. Very comfortable house in which to feel at home in a quiet area, ideal to disconnect from the city stress. Forests to walk by and friendly neighbours. Exchanged cars too, to easily move around. They took very good care of our house and highly recommend swapping with them. Danke freunds!!”
