Must see · Bridge · Landmark
Kramerbrucke Erfurt is the only bridge of its kind in Europe north of the Alps. First chronicled in 1117, the other ancient bridges like this one have burned up. This bridge, however, is composed of lime- and sandstone instead of timber. Its long stretch of inhabited buildings features craftspeople displaying and selling pottery, woodcarvings, and blown glass. Check out the 1:1,000 scale model of the bridge in the House of Foundations. To see the whole thing, walk across the bridge and also take a look from above and below.

  • Great on the photos, but during 2 months in Erfurt I didn't find a single minute without traffic or just an opportunity to take a photo without at least hundred people
  • That’s an amazing area! If you come to visit in Erfurt you have to learn about this city’s history and visit here. You can put on your foot under the river and eat ice cream, lots of people are doing like this:) %100 recommended!
