Erfurt

Martin Luther once declared Erfurt, the capital of Thuringia, to be "in the ideal location, the perfect place for a city". He knew Erfurt well, having spent 10 years there as a monk.

From 1505 to 1511 Luther lived at the Augustinian monastery in Erfurt, an architecturally and historically interesting 13th century building that is today an important Luther site. The Bible-Monastery-Luther exhibition on permanent display in the former monastic dormitory illustrates monastery life and Luther's Erfurt years. The monastery is also an international convention centre. Its historical library is one of Germany's most important collections of ecclesiastical literature. In summer, concerts and plays are staged in the Renaissance courtyard.

Highlights

Erfurt is a city of bridges. In addition to the old quarter and the twin architectural gems the cathedral and the church of St. Severus, a must on any sightseeing tour is the Merchants' Bridge (Krämerbrücke), the only bridge north of the Alps with occupied buildings from end to end. The Merchants' Bridge Festival, Thuringia's biggest and most attractive Old Town festival, is celebrated in June. Every year, horticultural splendour can be enjoyed at the egapark gardens.

События
The Kirchentag in Erfurt offers you the opportunity to experience historical sites, discuss issues of the Reformation in a modern-day context, and participate in a colourful celebration.

It's as simple as it is ingenious: Erfurt's Cathedral Hill, where St. Mary's Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus stand side by side, provides a dramatic backdrop all year round. 

And drama is what you can expect at the Cathedral Steps Theatre Festival. Every July since 1994, its organisers have staged either a musical or an opera and a play for children on this spot, using the architecture to brilliant effect. The result: an event that none of the hundreds of thousands of visitors each season are likely to forget in a hurry.
