    I always love your photos. I’ve never been to Erfurt except to their Christmas market. Your photos remind me I’ve got to go back. It’s a beautiful city!

      Thanks for your very kind compliment, Corinne! How did you manage to visit the city’s Christmas market but not the city itself? Were you on your way elsewhere later that evening?

      Hi, Eloise. I had a very informative stay and visit to both Erfurt and Weimar, separated by a short 15-minute journey on the train. Thanks for reading and for your comments!

      Hi, Vlad. You might have heard of Weimar; from that city with two UNESCO World Heritage Site classifications, Erfurt is only 15 minutes away with the train. I’m really glad to have visited these two cities and the state of Thuringia. Thanks again for reading; I hope you’ll visit Thuringia.

    I think my great grandfather may have emigrated from Erfurt. I’m only now learning a bit about it. His family were farmers, though, so I’m guessing they may not have lived in the city itself. Thanks for these beautiful pictures, giving me a taste of what the city is like.

      Hi and you’re welcome, Rosemarie. Erfurt and Weimar were a real joy to discover, and I hope to return, especially as I’d like to also go back to Eisenach and to go farther east to Jena. There’s still a lot of farming in the area, as seen in the products sold in the outdoor markets. The “central” part of Germany in the state of Thuringia is a beautiful and historic part of the country, though many might forego what was once the former “east” (GDR/DDR). Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave your comment!
