Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Put Domplatz and other Erfurt attractions into our Erfurt travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Duomo is situated in the Centre of Erfurt, however somewhat further away from the anger. The Cathedral square is huge and largely undeveloped, allowing for beautiful views of the cathedral mountain.
