What do I need to know about living in Erlangen?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Erlangen, they said:

"Erlangen is a city in Bavaria, Germany, known for its university and research institutions. It is a great place for expats to retire, as it offers a high quality of life, with plenty of cultural activities, parks, and green spaces. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Erlangen is higher than in other parts of Germany, so it is important to budget accordingly. Additionally, expats should research the local healthcare system and make sure they have the necessary insurance coverage. Finally, it is important to learn some basic German, as English is not widely spoken in Erlangen," explained one expat living in Erlangen, Germany.
