The major part of Baiersdorf is idyllically situated on a terrace which preserves the town from being flooded by the close Regnitz river. It is located exactly between Erlangen and Forchheim .
As Baiersdorf is famous for farming and processing horseradish, the Meerrettich Museum for horseradish is located in the old center of the town. A horseradish queen is even chosen every year on the third Saturday in September. The margrave Johann der Alchimist started the cultivation of horseradish in the region.
