About the city

Erfurt is a city that impresses guests with its medieval charm and rich history, combined with a warm welcome. The Thuringian capital has always been a meeting place and home of important intellectuals and a magnet for visitors worldwide.

Erfurt was once called the City of Towers because of the towering spires of the city's 25 parish churches, 15 abbeys and ten chapels that reach for the sky. One of the historical sights is the unique "Kremerbrucke" (Merchant's Bridge), the longest residential bridge in Europe. This exceptional bridge beats the heart of the modern regional capital. Erfurt has one of Germany's best-preserved medieval Old Towns, with rich patrician houses, charming half-timbered houses and numerous churches that have given the city the nickname "Thuringian Rome".

St. Mary's Cathedral, built in the 14th century, is where Martin Luther was ordained to the priesthood. Today it is known for its medieval free-swinging bell, the Gloriosa, the largest of its kind in the world. The church towers cast a shadow over the meticulously restored half-timbered houses and beautiful Renaissance buildings in the historic city centre, which hosts one of Germany's finest open-air theatrical events. The University of Erfurt has an international reputation and educates more than 6,000 students annually. In 1994, the tertiary care centre Helios Hospital Erfurt opened in the city. The clinic specializes in guided robotic surgery and cancer treatment.

Erfurt is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. The city's inhabitants know how to have fun, and every year they organize holidays and festivals in which ancient crafts, court love songs, jesters and many colourful stalls participate. Visitors to the city can also stroll through the small shops and large department stores and enjoy the charming cafes and cosy restaurants of Erfurt.
