Kramerbruecke is the only bridge of its kind in Europe north of the Alps. First chronicled in 1117, the other ancient bridges like this one have burned up. This bridge, however, is composed of lime- and sandstone instead of timber. Its long stretch of inhabited buildings features craftspeople displaying and selling pottery, woodcarvings, and blown glass. Check out the 1:1,000 scale model of the bridge in the House of Foundations. To see the whole thing, walk across the bridge and also take a look from above and below. Plan your visit to Kramerbruecke and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Erfurt trip site.

  • I knew Erfurt was nice, I didn't know it's this nice. Beautiful, taken straight from your imagination on how a medival merchant street would look like.

  • Looks great! A nice little street on top of a river bed with little stores and souvenirs of all sorts. You must come here if you are in Erfurt
  • Wonderful location and friendly staff. It helps if you speak German fluently (not a problem for me 🙂) Rooms could be a little more functional: wooden floor instead of moquette, a fridge, more space for luggage.
