The Domplatz was a great venue for the Advent Christmas Market. The regional bratwurst was delicious - however lots of other specialty foods are available, such as a melted cheese and ham - scrumptious! Tip - don't miss the smaller Christmas Market behind the Dom. Take the broad staircase leading up to the church plaza and head down the opposite... More

The Christmas market that filled this square was one of the best we've seen across Europe over the past two years. Even though it's a two hour drive, I'd come back for this Weihnachtsmarkt.

Very significant historically. Parking is a real problem, however. You'll drive around for an hour in order to jump into a just vacated space, just like musical chairs.

Great little local market to take a stroll through selling everything from fresh veggies, smoked meats to flowers. There is also a Beer Garden, however this was closed at the time of our visit.

Great location right outside the church. Please note however to find authentic German made souvenirs you will need to travel down the walkways to the shops on the way to Merchants Bridge. Lots of treasures there!

The Domplatz is a large town square which hosts a variety of markets, concerts and special events throughout the year. Have a look at the local tourism office for more information. My last visit was in October 2016, one of a series stretching back several years. My tip for the Domplatz would be the Erfurt Christmas market. Having been others... More

Two distinctive church buildings of different traditions dominate this site in the centre of Erfurt overlooking the Platz. Excellent views from this site of the old town.
