Quite a large square with the best view of the massive cathedral and church looming high above. There was a sort of farmers market the day we were there.

When we visited - there wasn't anything actually happening in the Platz (Though I assume there are things from time to time). It has a lovely backdrop of the Cathedral, but when we were there - not a lot else was going on.

I was exploring Erfurt and came across the Cathedral and the town square in front of it. It is a large open area where they have Christmas Markets for the holiday. Off to the side are some small cafes for food and drink.

A lovely setting for the Christmas market with the cathedral towering over you. Great selection of stalls, in fact my favourite market and i have visited a few. Some nice authentic shops. Don't forget a ride of the Ferris Wheel!

Having been to several Christmas Markets in Germany this was by far the most spectacular backdrop to the Domplatz. Worthwhile visiting just to see the magnificent site. The market was spread around the Domplatz offering a variety of events. Erfurt off the well run tracks...More

At Domplatz in Erfurt you find one of the most beautiful christmas markets in Germany. It becomes especially atmospheric at night when the cathedral is lit and some snowflakes are coming down. I like the pyramid and the fairytale forest which is nice for children...More
