“Hallmark of Erfurt, the Thuringian Capital”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

One of the biggest church squares in Europe. Come in the early morning to buy fresh produce and flowers arranged in beautiful and luscious manner. The cobbled streets, the square and the buildings around it all more than 800 years old. Scale up the 50 or more stairs and explore either of the two churches. In the summer, they have open air theatre on the stairs which is an experience that draws many visitors here.

“Huge place with a breath taking sight on the twin domes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

The Domplatz is a giant place where all kinds of events are taking place over the year (markets, Christmas Market, even a Pope visit...). High over the place, the two immense churches are towering as they did in former days. One Catholic and one Protestant church.
Whenever you visit Erfurt, you will definitely happen to see the Domplatz and most you will most likely take some time, sit down, enjoy a coffee or tea and enjoy the unique flair of the historic plaza in the shadow of the two Lord's houses.

The bus tour started at the Domplatz and wound its way through the old town and up to the Petersberg behind the cathedral. The explanations and stories were well presented. to be recommended.

“Nice views, beautiful churches”

This is a great place to come hang out, and relax. The dom and kirche are beautiful inside and out. The view of Domplatz from the Dom stairway is very pretty.
