Katzwang, formerly a separate municipality, has been a part of Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany, since 1 July 1972. It is located on a ford across the Rednitz river, in the south of the city (approx. 8 km away from the center).
The Rhine-Main-Danube canal, a navigable waterway linking the Main and Danube rivers, passes to the north of Katzwang. On 26 March 1979, while still under construction, the canal burst its banks close to Katzwang and flooded the village, killing a 12 year old girl and causing widespread property damage.
