Domplatz, Erfurt

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Domplatz, one of the largest markets in Germany, was once the main market square and Courthouse Square--so a trip here allows you to shop where people have been trading since the 12th century. Enjoy the view of Cathedral Hill and the fortress, or stop and see the Minerva Fountain or Erthal obelisk. Various festivals are held here throughout the year, including one of the largest and best-known Christmas markets in Germany. Several restaurants are sprinkled throughout the area. If you don't speak German well, consider skipping this site; few people here speak English. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Domplatz and many more Erfurt attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Erfurt vacation planner.
