Where to stay:

We usually suggest that you stay in downtown Erlangen. Here are a few recommendations:

For visitors traveling by car there are some options in Tennenlohe (6 km to the lab):

  • Ibis budget Hotel Tennenlohe (used to be etap Hotel), cheapest acceptable option, well-tested by several PhD students (30-40 Euros per night for a single room, breakfast costs extra, prices vary if there is a fair in Nuremberg). Note that there is a second etap Hotel in Nuremberg (don’t book that one).
  • Hotel Albertinum, slightly more expensive. Single room costs around 70 Euros during the week, cheaper on weekends. Webpage:
  • Arvena Business Hotel, an affordable 4-star hotel. Webpage:

Note that Tennenlohe has no “night life” and the distance to the city center of Erlangen (6 km) or Nuremberg (15 km) is more a cycling distance than a walking distance.
