Entspannen an der Krämerbrücke

Erfurt - architectural pearl and mirror of the times

With its atmospheric alleyways and tiny squares, the delightful old part of the city has largely retained its medieval structure and is an eloquent monument to the German style of town architecture. Erfurt’s twin symbols – the cathedral and the Church of St. Severus – stand side by side, a majestic presence on the skyline and a masterful combination of Gothic architecture unparalleled in Europe. You must not miss seeing the Merchants’ Bridge, which has the longest row of inhabited buildings on any European bridge. Another impressive building is the neo-Gothic town hall with its numerous wall paintings going up the staircase. On Fischmarkt, the mansions "Zum Breiten Herd" and "Zum Roten Ochsen" date back to the Renaissance. Other buildings of interest in the heart of the town are the  Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) buildings, the post office building and the former "Römischer Kaiser" department store on Anger. Enjoy discovering the architectural styles of different epochs.
