Furth is a city situated in the northern Bavaria in Germany. It is located in the district of Middle Franconia. With the cities of Nuremberg and Erlangen and many minor cities, Furth forms the Middle-Franconian conurbation. As of January 2004, it had a recorded population of 112,000 inhabitants. It was known at the confluence of the rivers Pegnitz and Rednitz that formed the river Regnitz since the year 800. This was a beneficial region for many old trade routes, which crossed the rivers.
Furth was first mentioned in the year, 1007 when Emperor Heinrich II handed his property to the bishop of Bamberg. From that time, the control over Furth changed many times between the bishop of Bamberg, the Margrave of Ansbach and the city of Nuremberg. This constellation is symbolized in the crest of Furth, a three-leafed cloverleaf. The city had a large population of Jews in the past and was burned down, where a few monuments like St. Michael's Church survived. It also survived the Second World War without damage.
Furth has its oldest structure, St. Michael's Church that dates back to the Middle Ages. Its historical city hall, Altes Rathaus is a 19th century structure of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Germany, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
