Neuendettelsau is a local authority in Middle Franconia, Germany. Neuendettelsau is situated 20 miles southwest of Nuremberg and 12 miles east of Ansbach. Since 1947 it has a Lutheran seminary (Augustana Hochschule).
Reverend Wilhelm Löhe (1808–1872) founded in 1854 an institute for deaconesses. The Diakonie Neuendettelsau is one of today's major independent Christian institutions for social welfare work in Germany and the biggest such enterprise in Bavaria. More than 5,800 employees at numerous institutions in Neuendettelsau and other regions all over Southern Germany and in other European countries take care of the people they are responsible for.
