The Krämerbrücke is one of the oldest buildings in Erfurt and is one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is built on both sides with half-timbered houses and spans the Gera. It connects the Benediktsplatz in the old town center with the Wenigemarkt, which lies at the eastern end of the Krämerbrücke.

Beautiful old town with landmark "Krämerbrücke". There is a shop here where you can get into the basement and can look directly into the Gera. If you go over the bridge you do not realize that it is a bridge. The houses are built so densely that one does not see the water.

One of the landmarks of the city of Erfurt is the Krämerbrücke, the longest bridge built and inhabited by houses in Europe. The Krämerbrücke is the most interesting secular building in Erfurt, it was first built of wood and stone in 1325. Originally, the 120 m long Krämerbrücke was built with 62 narrow houses, which were later combined into 32 houses. Of the two former bridgehead churches at the two ends of the bridge, there is still the eastern Aegidienkirche (imposing tower view, Tue-Sun 11-17 clock). On the Krämerbrücke are galleries and shops, with Thuringian blue printing materials, hand-painted ceramics, glass Lauscha, jewelry, wood carvings and other Unstrut wines that invite you to linger and discover the history.
