A beautiful bridge with small house that still operates as a commercial street. Well worth visiting.

The Merchants' Bridge in Erfurt is one of the most famous bridges in Germany. There are attractive little shops on it. You will enjoy the views from the bridge and from around. The bridge is situated in the medieval part of Erfurt. Enjoy a unique combination of ancient and contemporary flair.

I have never been to Venice, but I think this place is somehow like it. Old, but very well preserved, it hosts the small shops of merchants with all kind of traditional and modern stuff for those who want to take a piece of this place home or are looking for a nice gift.

Cute houses with plaster and timber with their panel glass windows, and tiny stores along a narrow road : a real bridge with houses upon it, True middle ages. A must!

This is a lovely place to visit, and the chocolate/ice cream shop is absolutely worth the line. Visit the church tower at one end for great views of the city. The shops are cute. The architecture of the bridge itself is pretty amazing, so go around to the footbridge just downstream a bit and get a good view.

Wonderful local art for sale by artists and very welcoming. We enjoyed the ice cream, musicians, historic buildings and we climbed the tower and saw it all from another vantage point - what a memorable and delightful day we had here.

Spent the day in Efrurt with my wife and her penpal and family. Had a wonedrful lunch in the sun at a restaurant next to the Thuringia state parliament building followed by a walk around the city.

If you're there with kids this revs up their fantasy about mediaval times. If you're there with your significant other it makes for a nice romantic stroll!! A lot of small shops invite for a leisurely walk and getting some knickknacks for gifts.don't forgery the good eateries close by.

Oldest bridge in Europe build with houses on it. More than 600 years old. Cosy cafés, small souvenir shops and middle age Christmas market in front.

The Krämerbrücke is a one of the most important sight seeing spots of Erfurt. It connects the Wenigemarkt and the Fischmarkt. Both sides of the bridge are covered with houses including small shops and cafes. Once in Erfurt...Go there
