Erfurt captivates with its medieval city centre, which is one of the best-preserved in Germany. It is a charming blend of wealthy patrician townhouses and lovingly reconstructed half-timbered buildings, overlooked by the towering spires of St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus. The Merchants’ Bridge is the only one of its kind in Europe – with 120m length and incorporating 32 houses it is the longest inhabited bridge.

As the centre of Thuringia’s economic, intellectual, cultural and political life, the city has always attracted great individuals who significantly influenced the spirit of their age such as Martin Luther, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, Johann Sebastian Bach and Napoleon. Buildings related to these personalities such as the Monastery of St. Augustine convey a faithful and realistic image of the past. With the oldest parts dating back to the 11th century, the Old Synagogue is one of the oldest and best-preserved medieval synagogues in central Europe and seeks inclusion on the list of UNESCO world heritage. Petersberg Citadel, the only extensively preserved baroque city fortress in Central Europe, invites guests to explore its newly developed exhibition and its intricate maze of underground passageways.

Erfurt offers its visitors a wide selection of cultural events – from the open-air Cathedral Steps Festival over the Thuringian Bach Festival to the picturesque Christmas Market. The Erfurt Tourism and Marketing Board is happy to support you with tickets for events, a variety of guided tours of the old town, accommodation bookings and various social programmes.
