    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.

    The Kämerbrücke is the most interesting secular building in Erfurt. It is the longest, continuously built with houses and inhabited bridge in Europe (32 houses).

    The historic bridge with closed perimeter development is very crowded. Best to visit in the early morning.

    The Krämerbrücke must be seen! It is one of the oldest buildings in Erfurt and is one of the city's most famous landmarks. The bridge is built on both sides with half-timbered houses. It spans the Gera and connects the Benediktsplatz in the old town center with the Wenigemarkt.

    Built - inhabited - with small shops, to a few hundred years under its belt: Such bridges are today in Europe only in very few places.

    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.

    The bridge was built next to a ford through the Gera and was part of the west-eastern trade route Via Regia. Originally built as a wooden bridge over the Gera, it was first mentioned in 1117 after being destroyed by one of the many fires (Wikipedia).

    Its architectural beauty is not revealed only in the driveways and shops, quiet times even make a walk outside, or behind trampling down to the riverbank.

    On hot days, the hiker can cool his feet in the Gera with an ice cream in his hand and watch it drifting

    If you like something special with regard to the flavor of the ice is right here. But, you should keep in mind that the ice cream maker will pay extra for the waffle.

    If you walk over the Krämerbrücke, you should definitely look in at Goldhelm. It is worth it .. A dream in chocolate.

    From the light, rather in the afternoon visit. An ice cream shop is waiting at the end of the bridge.

    A shady passage where so many hikers and tourists in the hot summer like a bank. Also as a shortcut serves this underpass.

    The Krämerbrücke is next to the cathedral the landmark of Erfurt and when you stroll on it, then you feel like you're on vacation and despite the tourist bustle, it also slows down in the shops to rummage for rarities And to stay
