The state capital of Thuringia can look back on more than 1270 years of history and boasts 200,000 inhabitants. Come to Erfurt and discover one of the best-preserved medieval city centres in German, attractive patrician town houses and lovingly reconstructed half-timbered buildings.
Erfurt’s most famous landmark is the ensemble formed by St Mary’s Cathedral and the Church of St Severus, together with the Merchants‘ Bridge (Krämerbrücke). It is 120 metres long and with 32 houses along its course, it is the longest inhabited bridge in Europe. Above Cathedral Square on Petersberg Hill towers the only extensively preserved Baroque city fortress in the whole of Central Europe, which can be visited on a guided tour.
