Herzogenaurach as a business site is marked by its location within the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region. It is easily accessible due to its favourable access to the nearby motorways and a public airfield.
Herzogenaurach has 24,000 inhabitants and is the largest town in the administrative district of Erlangen-Höchstadt. It is a middle-order centre and fulfils an important function concerning local supply. Herzogenaurach has a higher-than-average job density with emphasis on the productive area.
Herzogenaurach is located idylically in the Aurach valley. Therefore, protection of the ressources and environment is a major issue: huge protected landscape areas, statutes for tree preservation, a climate protection concept and a public transport system operated by the town administration are only some examples.
