Erlangen-Höchstadt is a district in Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by the districts of Fürth, Neustadt -Bad Windsheim, Bamberg, Forchheim and Nürnberger Land, and by the cities of Nuremberg and Erlangen. The city of Erlangen is not part of the district, but nonetheless its administrative seat.
The earliest extant documents are drawings from 1413 which show water wheels along the Regnitz. The first and second Margrave wars, Brandenburg versus Nuremberg, devastated the countryside.
