Erfurt for everyone

Situated at the crossing point of ancient trade routes, Erfurt grew into an influential commercial centre and university town during the Middle Ages. The city’s wealthy past is reflected in its many lovingly restored Renaissance buildings and half-timbered houses, which together with the churches and abbeys, Cathedral Hill and Merchants’ Bridge form one of Germany’s best-preserved medieval centres. As well as being home to architectural masterpieces from the Middle Ages to Bauhaus, Erfurt has also always attracted great individuals who influenced the spirit of their age such as Martin Luther and Johann Sebastian Bach.
