March 18, 2019: Launch of anniversary exhibition

The Nuremberg Commercial College started teaching in 1919, bringing academic innovation to the city and the region as a whole. From spring 2019, a permanent exhibition will be on display in the Ludwig Erhard building in the Findelgasse, recounting familiar and less well-known stories from 100 years of research, teaching and education. The exhibition is a journey through history from the inauguration of the commercial college and upheavals of the Nazi period to the structural reforms of the present day.

Throughout this journey visitors will experience artistic contributions that explore current topics and how the school relates to the city and society today, combining thought-provoking concepts from young regional artists with historic narrative. The School looks forward to welcoming many visitors from March 18, 2019.
