Domplatz, Erfurt

4.7
Domplatz, one of the largest markets in Germany, was once the main market square and Courthouse Square--so a trip here allows you to shop where people have been trading since the 12th century. Enjoy the view of Cathedral Hill and the fortress, or stop and see the Minerva Fountain or Erthal obelisk. Various festivals are held here throughout the year, including one of the largest and best-known Christmas markets in Germany. Several restaurants are sprinkled throughout the area. If you don't speak German well, consider skipping this site; few people here speak English.

  • If we are in Erfurt, we Park in most cases under the Cathedral square. Unfortunately, many people come here for special occasions and so it has not always lucky when parking. The modern system in Erfurt, you know but in time, if and where you can get a parking space. Erfurt City Centre is worth a visit and worth a visit at any time of the year. Around the Cathedral square alone, there's a very nice shops and excellent restaurants and ice cream parlours. We also like to once go for special occasions and celebrations over the Cathedral square and particularly about the Christmas market.
