"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


There is much Jewish history in this medieval eastern German city. The remains of the 11th-century Old Synagogue and Mikve were discovered in 1997 at one end of the Krämerbrücke. In 1998, a hoard of coins now known as the “Erfurt Treasure” was uncovered. The treasure is on permanent display in the Old Synagogue. The historic Little Synagogue re-opened to the public in 1998. At Erfurt’s New Synagogue & Jewish Community Center weekly services are held and kosher meals are available.
