  • Erfurt Card

    Erfurt Favorites

    I am usually reluctant when it comes to "cards" for tourists. For example, in my city the "Dresden Card" is not really a good deal - expensive and only pays off if you spend morning to evening in museums, and many of them. Unlike in Erfurt - I found the Erfurt Card to be a good deal.The cost was 12.90 Euro for 48 hours, and in 2015 it is still the...

    Towering a massive 120 meters above the small town of Jena, the Jen-Tower is one of the tallest buildings in all of Germany.
