Erfurt: merchants bridge - Krämerbrücke

The bridge was originally built as a wooden connection across the Gera river. Since the 11th century merchant stalls are lining the bridge, making it the longest of its kind in Europe. After several fires its planks were finally replaced by stone in 1325. The originally 62 narrow structures were finally merged into a compound of 32 bridge houses.
