Luggage lockers in Erfurt train station?

by xirprma

We would appreciate knowing if there are luggage lockers or a left-luggage department in the Erfurt train station. ( also in Worms, but that is probably a different post!) Thanks very much.

Both stations have luggage lockers.
DB's railway station database
http://www.bahnhof.de/site/bahnhoefe/de/bahnhofssuche__deutschland/bahnhofssuche/bahnhofsdaten__filter.html

luggage lockers = Schließfächer

Left-luggage departments do only exist at half of dozen of the biggest train stations. Thus in cities considerably larger than Erfurt or Worms.

In addition to the above: Signs in German stations are usually symbols. To find the lockers look for the sign depicting a key and a square with a suitcase in it.

Travel Tips for Erfurt

Ampelmann

by alancollins

I have come across the Ampelmann before during my travels in Eastern Germany. They first started life in 1961 when a traffic psychologist had worked out that people were more likely to obey a friendly figure at traffic lights. After reunification it was decided to scrap the traffic light men for the same ones as the rest of the EU. Protests then followed and it decided to keep the existing Ampelmann in place, though I suspect that the red traffic light man in the photo appears to be an updated version. The Ampelmann has become a popular figure and you can now buy various gifts with the figures attached.

Buchenwald

by Leipzig

A concentration camp, just 30min away from Erfurt. As far as I know all school classes in Leipzig have to visit this former concentration camp at least once. So be prepared to see a lot of bored teenager here.

The exhibition is located in the former storage house. Inseide you see evidence of the Nazi crimes and life in the camp. The exhibition comprises objects, pictures and documents as well as biographies of the victims and the perpetrators. Accompanying texts and a visitors' guide to the exhibition are available in English.

free admission

opening times:

May-September: 9.45am - 5.15pm
October-April: 8.45am - 4.15pm

Flowers on the water

by christine.j

There are many cafés and bistros in the old part of Erfurt,on bridges or near bridges, where you can sit and enjoy the pretty flowers on the water. The gardeners have planted flowers in pots looking like boats, so when there is enough water, it looks like they are swimming. Unfortunately, when we were there, it hadn't rained for some time, so the water wasn't high enough and you could see how the flowerboats were fastened. But it still was a very pretty sight.

The Gera River from above

by Nemorino

Here is a view of the Gera River in the center of Erfurt, as seen from the tower of St. Aegidius Church.

This river used to overflow its banks quite regularly, causing periodic floods of the city center. To prevent flooding, a canal was dug in 1898, parallel to the Stauffenberg-Allee, to carry off the excess water. (Look for "Flutgraben" on the city map.)

A Gossip Stone/Klatschstein

by christine.j

When I first heard about gossip stones I thought it was something to punish gossipers.
But people in Erfurt were much nicer than my thoughts. They knew, people would stop and gossip, no matter what . So they had these gossip stones built at their houses. There are two stones, shaped like a chair, one right and one left of the front door. Instead of having to stand while gossiping, probably with heavy baskets full of shopping, the gossipers could just sit down and enjoy talking about who had done what with whom.
These gossiping stones can be seen at several of the old houses in Erfurt.
