Erfurt Flea market in the city centre, copyright Erfurt Tourismus Gesellschaft
As the whole city centre is a listed site of historical interest, shopping in the traffic-free heart of Erfurt is a particular delight, whether in the typical 1870s buildings and modern shopping centres around Anger or in the tiny medieval half-timbered buildings around the Merchants' Bridge and Lange Brücke (Long Bridge).
Originally the market where woad was traded, Anger is now the central shopping area. Shopping here is a real pleasure: cafés, restaurants, large shopping centres, shops and department stores offer a huge range to suit every taste and pocket.
Merchants' Bridge and Long Bridge
Today's small boutiques, galleries, antiquarian bookshops, woodcarving and porcelain workshops, pottery and glassblowing studios are reminders of just how skilled medieval craftsmen were. Articles produced here make excellent souvenirs and travel far and wide to new homes in Germany and abroad.
Market on Domplatz
If you enjoy the colourful bustle of stalls selling flowers, fruit and vegetables, you will love the Erfurt market on Domplatz in the quaint old quarter. Popular Thuringian products, especially the Thuringian bratwurst sausage, are sold alongside fruit, vegetables, meat and flowers.
