City of Aurich
Aurich (Low German “Auerk”) is the second biggest city in East Frisia. Aurich has been the residence of numerous East Frisian rulers and the site of the Prussian and Hannoverian administration of East Frisia. This old tradition causes the self-confidence of Aurich’s inhabitants, who secretly speak of Aurich as East Frisia’s capital. Aurich is entitled to use bilingual place-name signs (German and Low German) since 2004.
