Travel Tips for Erfurt

Beyond Anger

by iandsmith

These pics are all from my second trip to Erfurt. I walked down to the lovely baroque haberdashery store at the end of Anger and then went beyond, something I hadn't done before. Since I hadn't heard about this area you can imagine my surprise when I came across this group of buildings, some of which had obviously been constructed by someone with money in the past.

Staatskanzlei

by Nemorino

Various governments, both German and foreign, have used this building as their headquarters since about 1700. For instance it was the headquarters of the French occupying forces from 1806-1813, and even Napoleon lived here for a couple of weeks in 1808.

The American military government of this area was based in this building from April 12 to July 3, 1945. Then the borders were rearranged and the Soviet military government took over until 1949, when the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was founded.

In the 1990s the building was thoroughly restored and renovated, and since 1995 it has been the seat of the government of Thüringen, including the office of the prime minister.

Address: Regierungsstraße 73, 99084 Erfurt

Poor Wolfram

by christine.j

Inside the cathedral in Erfurt you see a candleholder which looks like a man. It's mansize and he is holding up his arms with a large candle in each of them. This is Wolfram. He was a man in 12th century who must have been some kind of criminal. The citizens of Erfurt were very angry with him and sentenced him to stand in front of the cathedral, holding two heavy candles in his arms. By this they wanted to make sure he'd "see the light". You can imagine how heavy the candles must have been and how difficult and painful this must have been for him. After a few Sundays the citizens took pity on him and allowed him to have a candleholder made which looked like him. He had it done in bronze and it's said to have been first free-standing
bronze statue in Germany.

Krämerbrücke from above

by Nemorino

The Krämerbrücke is a bridge over the river Gera in the center of Erfurt. The unusual thing about it, as you can see from the photo, is that there are houses on the bridge, on both sides of it.

The bridge is 120 meters long, and they claim it is "Europe's longest inhabited bridge" and in any case the only inhabited bridge in Europe north of the Alps. It was built in 1325 to replace an earlier wooden bridge which had burned down.

Chancellery

by evona

In this beautiful building called Alte Statthalterei (Governor’s Residence), wich was once the residence of the governors of Erfurt, in year 1808 there meet Napoleon and Goethe at the Royal Congress. The monumental edifice was the center of European power politics for a short time when Napoleon resided here after the battle of Jena and Auerstedt. The Chancellery was built in the Renaissance style between 1711 and 1720. Great architectural is the western part of the Baroque façade. Now it is the seat of the President of Thuringia and the Stadskanzlei.
Between the guests wich visited this house are : Geothe, Herder, Schiller, Wieland, Humboldt.
