Days out

Erfurt's location "in the centre of the centre", as Luther once described it, makes it the perfect base for a range of excursions into the delightful surroundings. There is something here for everyone, whatever your interest.

The city is surrounded by gentle, often wooded hills. The light, mixed deciduous woodland is the perfect backdrop for many beautiful plants and flowers, including many protected species, which can be seen at their best in the spring. Beside the amazing nature, numerous beautiful, historical cities and impressing castles are just a stone's throw away from Erfurt.
