Our Erfurt-tips

Bridge Tour
recommended by

Erfurt has so much in common with our hometown of Münster. This mini-tour makes that tangible. Start on the “Lange Brücke”. Small, unusual stores and exclusive fashion boutiques give the Lange Brücke its character. Strolling on the “Krämerbrücke” is like taking a trip back in time. The charm of medieval merchant culture is within reach. In the individual stores you can discover many treasures. Beautifully reconstructed town houses four centuries old, provide a historical flair – always along the beautiful Gera.

non stop munching
at Goldhelm

Admittedly, all of us in the family have a weakness for chocolate and nougat. That’s also how this tip comes about. At Goldhelm Schokolade there is not only the best delicacies from the cocoa bean, no, there is also ice cream – and gifts, spreads and a warm advice.

Local brewery
“HeimatHafen Bier”

A true Erfurt native, a true brewer. Jan Schlennstedt has virtually added a star to the Erfurt beer world with HeimatHafen Bier His brewery is located in the time-honored train harbor. Jan uses primarily regional, selected raw materials of the best quality. He learned the craft from scratch and returned to his hometown after ten years around the world. He brews according to the German Purity Law. Everything here is handmade – even the bottle labels are glued on with love.

Bartholomew Tower

Our family is heartily attached to the Bartholomew Tower for two reasons. On the one hand, this extraordinary, medieval carillon tower “docks” directly to the building ensemble of the Hotel Zumnorde. On the other hand, together with other Erfurt companies and private individuals, we support the preservation of this wonderful carillon and its concerts. Sit on our green roof terrace and listen to Erfurt’s bells.

with monastery

As the name suggests, this monastery has a history related to asceticism. The Franciscan order began building a monastery on this site as early as the 13th century. The Franciscans swore off worldly possessions and symbolically for their conviction did not wear shoes. Hence the name of the church. Martin Luther preached here and already in 1811 the Thuringian Music Festival took place in the Barfüsserkirche. The building has been destroyed several times over the centuries, but never disappeared. Visit this beautiful ruin in the middle of the city – it has a magical effect.
