Erfurt

Storybook of German history

The horticultural city in the heart of Germany was once described by the author Arnold Zweig as a "storybook of German history". The recent boom in city tourism has also resulted in an increase of the number of tourists and overnight stays in the "Luther city".

Visitors are enchanted by the charming medieval historic centre of Erfurt, by the gardens and parkland, by the village fairs and by the Thuringian hospitality.

Art and the artistic on the Krämerbrücke

The most important architectonic landmark of Erfurt is the Krämerbrücke. Its gapless construction, over a length of 120 metres, makes it truly one of a kind in

Europe. Galleries and small shops have settles in the buildings on the bridge, in which art and handicraft is offered for sale. The imposing fortress and the quaint military history museum at the entrance to the grounds offer a journey through time and a look into the living conditions of the baroque era.
