Erfurt is "in the ideal location, there just has to be a city there."
This is how Martin Luther, the great Reformer, once described the city where he himself studied, and which is now the capital of Thuringia. Located at the crossroads of two ancient trading routes, the Via Regia and the Nuremberg Geleitstrasse, Erfurt expanded during the Middle Ages to become a powerful centre of trade and learning. With a modern-day population of over 200,000, Erfurt remains the largest city in Thuringia and accessible to all, thanks to its location near the geographical centre of Germany. High-speed InterCityExpress train services, the Erfurt-Weimar airport and excellent connections to the autobahn network bring the rest of Germany and Europe within easy travelling distance. As the region's main urban centre, Erfurt is also a popular place to live and visit, and a favourite shopping destination.
