Nestled in the heart of Germany, Erfurt is a historic city with an astounding array of cultural treasures. As the capital of Thuringia state, it boasts a rich history that dates back more than 1,275 years. Its medieval city center, with half-timbered houses and winding narrow streets, exudes an old-world charm that is both captivating and enchanting. Besides, its strategic location makes it an ideal base for exploring the other delightful towns and cities of the Thuringian region.
One of the highlights in Erfurt is the well-preserved Petersberg Citadel, an imposing fortress offering panoramic views of the city. But don't miss the iconic Erfurt Cathedral and the Merchant's Bridge, the longest inhabited bridge in Europe. Exploring the city by car allows you to take in the sights at your own pace, making sure you don't miss a beat of Erfurt's essence.
Beyond Erfurt, a car journey unlocks the treasures of Thuringia. You're just a short drive away from Weimar, home to the classic literature of Goethe, or Eisenach with the famous Wartburg Castle. And all these sites fall within a 50-km radius, making Erfurt an excellent starting point for a memorable road trip. For nature lovers, the Thuringian Forest, also known as the 'Green Heart of Germany', is an excellent destination for hiking and wildlife observation, located less than an hour's drive away from Erfurt.
