Erfurt is a city in Central, the capital of the federal state of Thuringia. This ancient university and trading city is located in the valley of the river Gera.

Erfurt is located almost in the center of modern Germany in the southern part of Thuringia. The city is located in an agricultural area between the foothills of the Harz and the Thuringian Forest.

When thinking of Erfurt, the first thing that comes to mind is the beautiful half-timbered houses. In the Middle Ages, this beautiful city was the capital of Thuringia, Germany and was a very important trading center, so today we can see all the historic buildings that remain from those times. You can take a train or a bus to get to this historic city! The best way to see the city is on foot, as the city center is small, but of course you can take the tram or bus, just like in other cities in Germany.

Your first stop in Erfurt should be the Domplatz, where you can see the Cathedral House and the Severi Church. Also known as St. Mary’s Cathedral, the Erfurt Dome is a Gothic cathedral built in the 14th century. This is also the cathedral where Martin Luther was ordained! Another Gothic church near the dome is the church of Severi. For those who love photography, Domplatz is the best place to visit.

Erfurt is famous for its half-timbered houses, and the best place to check it out is Kramerbrücke! Also known as the Trade Bridge, the Old Bridge was built in the 15th century. This famous tourist spot offers not only great views, but also craft and gift shops where you can buy traditional works of art! You can also take a break in a cafe by the river and on this beautiful old bridge or try Erfurt’s famous sausage, Thuringer, which can be found in many places here.

The Old Synagogue in Erfurt is one of the oldest medieval synagogues in Germany, dating back to the 11th century. Today it is used as a museum, where you can find the medieval Jewish community of Erfurt, the treasures of Erfurt, medieval coins, master gold works and a collection of religious documents from the 12th to 14th centuries!

The capital city of Erfurt is the political, economic and cultural center of the federal state of Thuringia. The business is mainly focused on engineering, media and creative industries such as design, decoration and interior design, textiles, horticulture and food processing. Among other things, in the technology sector, it is possible to cooperate in the field of micro-technology, photovoltaic and sensor technology and IT.
