With just under 111,000 inhabitants, the university city of Erlangen is one of a total of eight major cities in Bavaria. Erlangen has a rich history, having been first mentioned in a document in 1002. Around 400 years later, Erlangen received city rights. The current cityscape was mainly influenced by the Huguenots, who fled to Erlangen in the 17th century. Today, the city is a leading location for technology and industry in northern Bavaria and the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region.
