"Aurich" Aurich by Kathrin_E

Aurich Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 15 photos

"In Aurich ist's schaurig" (In Aurich it's scary) - that old German rhyme is wrong. Aurich is a cute small town in the heart of East Frisia with many brick buildings which give a warm colour, and a little harbour along the canals.

Aurich used to be the capital of East Frisia. From 1565 to 1744 the Counts of Ostfriesland resided there. Later the region became part of the Kingdom of Hannover and centre of administration. King Georg V. substituted the old palace with a new one in typical 19th century historism in the 1850s.
