  • This is a must for a vist to Erfurt. Indeed an impressive church worth climbing a lot of starrs to get to.  more »
  • Cool place but only from this side. The other side you find narrow streets and a bad view. Not that far from City Park and Central Station.
  • A place of contemplation of relaxation a place of reflection but first of all a place of prayer, worth seeing is very well preserved and cared for.
