I highly recommend to hire a local guide and to let him tell you all the story about this amazing bridge. A wonderful place and a must see in Erfurt!

This is THE place you have to see in Erfurt - otherwise you have not been here. Tip: Pass by also from outside and see the tiny houses from another view. TOP!

Enjoy and linger on this fascinating bridge. Read about the history, linger in the stores. Enjoy the museum and take pictures in and around it. We also had a wonderful ice-cream at one of the very busy shops as well as a fine meal. Charming..

One of the wonders of Erfurt. Nice and cute shops when you're walking on the bridge - you won't actually notice you're walking on one. And the magic comes when you step outside and see that it's actually a bridge made of houses. Best viewed...More

Amazingly well preserved piece of medieval architecture and history still serving its function of a trading place with many tiny shops and cafes. Nice view from its outer side.

We were fortunate enough to visit Erfurt just before Christmas. This place, same like the rest of the town, is a lovely way to explore what's the best of Thuringia. A place worth visiting!

You only realize it's a brigde seeing it from aside, while walking trough it, seems like another commercial street. I loved the city, and the Altstadt is very beautiful and charming.

From memory, most of the shops keep fairly normal "small business" times ... closing around 17:30-18:00. Again, I think there's only one café/restaurant on the bridge, which I don't think is open in the evening. However... More
