Among the universities founded by the Hohenzollern dynasty, FAU is the youngest and the only one in the Franconian market towns of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and Brandenburg-Ansbach. For political reasons, the state university was established in nearby Erlangen in 1743.
The exhibition examines the history of FAU’s foundation and shows what survives of Hohenzollern heritage today. For the first time, the FAU’s foundation documentation will also be accessible online to everyone.
