The TRACE2022 conference will take place in the beautiful city of Erlangen near Nürnberg

Erlangen is located in Middle Franconia and is situated on the floodplain of the river Regnitz. Wide streets, baroque buildings and open squares - Erlangen is considered one of the best-preserved baroque planned towns in Germany and has a very special atmosphere. In the centre of Bavaria's smallest city is the beautiful Schlossgarten (literally “palace garden”), and in Erlangen's old town you will find winding, narrow streets with small shops and creative gastronomy. Not to forget the living tradition around beer and the internationally known festival “Erlanger Bergkirchweih”.

Erlangen is part of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region and defines itself as the high-tech centre of northern Bavaria. With Siemens, the renowned Friedrich Alexander University, numerous software companies, private and public research institutions, there is a concentration of technical know-how that is unique in northern Bavaria.

The surroundings of Erlangen also have a lot to offer: Schwabach as a city of gold beaters, Nuremberg with its magnificent imperial castle or Bamberg with its world cultural heritage are ideal for excursions in the neighbourhood area. Nature lovers will get their fill in the beautiful Franconian Switzerland with its numerous hiking routes.
