“We have just had two relaxing weeks in Jarmila and Robert's comfortable and spacious home surrounded by trees and garden. It felt like a country manor house in a wonderful location for exploring the Bavarian countryside. We visited castles, caves, medieval walled cities, small villages and walked many nature trails. We made good use of the maps and information provided for us, using their car and the excellent public transport to visit places of interest.”

“Even though we are experienced swappers this was our first swap in Germany and we absolutely loved it. Jamila and Roberts house is in a beautiful location surrounded by trees and the house itself is extremely comfortable and beautifully designed with lots of windows. We had the use of their car and bikes so were able to get around very easily. The area is a Mecca for cyclists and we couldn't get over the fact that every age group cycle daily. I would highly recommend this swap and Germany also. The transport system is wonderful should you need to take a bus or train and the transport website is very user friendly. There is lots to see and do and beautiful unspoilt Franconian architecture to admire. Many Thanks for a lovely exchange”
Where is it?
Erlangen is ideally located for visiting Munich, Nuremburg, Wurzburg, Bamberg, Rothenburg and Prague. Berlin is a 4 hour drive but Erlangen is on the main railway line to Berlin. The Franconian hilly countryside is covered by myriads of hiking and biking paths connecting small picturesque villages. Quite a few foreign visitors find their way to Erlangen and one hears a number of languages when one sits in the outside squares or beer-gardens. Here you live like the locals. Get a taste of the local specialities, beers and wines. Franconian wine is rare and a special treat. Additionally each village and town holds an annual summer festival (Kirchweih) usually with typical Bavarian music. Nürnberg an old toy making town has the famous toy museum. Those interested in WW2 History will find much to visit here. There is so much to do and learn here. The WW2 trials were held in Nuernberg so the original courthouse has a section dedicated to documenting these trials.
There are castles, churches, abbeys and monastaries dating back hundreds of years. Old town and village centers with typical Franconian architecture are everywhere. Our area is not over-crowded with tourists so the restaurants have to be good to survive. The prices are moderate and the atmosphere in the old town centers wonderful. Please also see the recommendations from our exchange partners. Erlangen has its famous Bergkirchweih festival in the later part of May and Munich has the Oktoberfest in late September so these are particularly good exchange dates if you want to experience the "um-pa-pa" music. and the exhillarating atmosphere.
