Impressive huge square in the town centre of Erfurt. Impressive if empty - but much more impressive if full of booths during the market. You can imagine how people felt humiliated when entering the Dome by climbing up the huge stairs to the entrance of during the Middle Ages.

The two massive, contrasting churches overlooking the large plaza filled with merchants selling their wares was more than I had imagined. Rather than just a tourist site, the area was an integral part of the community.

It's nice to just stand here and look around at the beautiful surroundings. Enjoy street life and just walk around

The place is really big and wide, so you can either go for a nice walk on a simple day or, if you are lucky enough, you can catch a market organized here. It also has beautiful houses and nice restaurants around. But the ost important is the Dom, of course, with 2 churches and beautiful views towards different parts... More

A must see when visiting Erfurt! A beautiful Gothic structure built in the 1400-1500 centuries houses the largest swinging medevil bell known for its purity and beautiful tones. Another important highlight are the stained glass windows that were disassembled and hidden during World War II in order to protect them. There are many beautiful artifacts to see, including the impressive... More

The Dom provides a very scenic backdrop for the Christmas Market in Erfurt, Germany. Around the Dom Platz, we discovered several nice restuarants.

One of the most beautiful places in germany. Two churches standing near by near, the Dom (St. Mary's Cathedral) and the Severikirche. In the middle tower of St Mary´s Cathedral is the world's largest medieval free-swinging bell named Gloriosa.

It's hard to imagine a more attractive space. On one side the cathedral hill with its pair of striking churches, and ascending stairway. Around two sides enormously varied commercial buildings, from various centuries presenting, in places, a fairy-tale prospect, and on the final side the striking state court building, with the hill rising to the walls of the Petersberg citadel....
