Former US Military base...[edit]

Seems odd that there's no mention of Ferris Barracks whatsoever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.87.20.98 (talk) 01:58, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Content dispute remarks moved from article to here[edit]

The current piece on the FAU reads as follows in the Erlangen city wiki. "In 1742, Count Friedrich of Bayreuth founded a university for the residency town Bayreuth, but due to the rebelliousness of the local students, the university was transferred to Erlangen. Only later did it obtain the name of "Friedrich-Alexander-University" and become a Prussian state university. Famous students of these times were Johann Ludwig Tieck and Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder."

The assertion that it became a "Russian state university" does not seem to make any sense and is not confirmed by the university's own online history. I suggest that the phrase "and became a Prussian state university" be stricken. --Tedcrackel (talk) 13:21, 18 March 2008 (UTC) Ted Crackel

Erlangen program[edit]

Talking about the Erlangen program in this article might (I think it is) relevant to this article. (Just a small note of course). 131.111.247.194 (talk) 13:18, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

I was amazed to find no mention of the Erlangen program in this article, since that's the reason why everyone one earth (except non-mathematicians, maybe) has heard of the place. I've added a paragraph. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:33, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

[edit]

"It is an annual tradition when leaving the Berch of an evening to go to the world famous Wheelers Pub and sample more traditional beer."

I deleted this because it is simply an add and far from the truth.

Erlanger Bergkirchweih[edit]

I was posted to Warner Barracks in Bamberg, Germany 1981 to 1987. German and American soldiers referred to this festival as "Strawberry Fest" or "Strawberry Hill Fest" Tjlynnjr (talk) 08:37, 25 January 2014 (UTC).

famous residents[edit]

Is it really necessary to have so many Nazi war heroes listed among the city's famous residents? This is the city of Noether and Ohm; it's weird to juxtapose them to people who are famous for no reason other than military service to the Third Reich.--46.189.28.70 (talk) 10:00, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
