Margrave Friedrich of Brandenburg-Bayreuth was a great patron of the arts and sciences. One of his most important achievements was the founding of our university in Erlangen on 4 November 1743, which is why the PLAYMOBIL special figure “Frederick III” holds the FAU’s founding charter in his hand.

FAU’s founding father would surely have been pleased if he had known during his lifetime that 280 years later his university would be one of the largest and most innovative research universities not only in Germany, but internationally. With almost 40,000 students, around 6,500 staff and more than 6,000 graduates each year, the FAU family is a strong community that thrives on exchange, mutual inspiration and support.

The FAU Community, the online platform for the entire FAU family, allows students, researchers, staff, supporters and alumni of the university to network. Members not only benefit from valuable contacts, but also from many other advantages.

To celebrate FAU’s 280th birthday on 4 November 2023, we will be giving away an (almost) life-size PLAYMOBIL Margrave Friedrich III among those who register as new members of the FAU Community on that day!

The second and third prizes are a lovely tote bag from the FAU Alumni Network with a surprise content.
