Erfurt's "Anger square"

The beauty of Erfurt's town centre lies in its lovingly restored houses from various architectural eras. The beautiful town houses on Angerstrasse and around Anger square lend this shopping paradise its elegant flair.

Shopping bliss in the shadows of town houses
Buildings steeped in history such as the Ursuline convent or the baroque packing and weighing house are interspersed with trendy shops and department stores. Don't forget to look out for genuine blue printed articles from Erfurt's blue printing workshops. Woad, the plant from which the blue dye is obtained, brought riches and prestige to Erfurt in the Middle Ages. This blue became the fashionable colour in Thuringia and can also be seen in the traditional pottery.
