A beautiful stop in Erfurt! Lots of interesting shops to poke around in when you're not too busy gawking at the lovely, half-timbered buildings.

We were amazed by the stories that an old lady guide was telling us. The place is beautiful and is amazing the quantity of churches in this city. Also she told us one history of the pigment blue, drunker the man better the pee and so better the color.

Neat attraction made more interesting by our walking guide. The shops on the bridge were fun to check out. Nice photo opportunities. I found the history of the bridge was the best part.
