The bridge is unusual, attractive and very well preserved. Along it are some pretty craft shops and cafes. Behind it there is a grassy area where people enjoy the sunshine and the beers at the local inn. All very pleasant

Personally, I would trnslate the term Krämerbrücke with ‘Chandlers‘ Bridge‘. Beautiful little shops and so close to other sights and, most importantly the Wenigemarkt which is an excellent place to dine and vine. Try Zum Wenigemarkt 13 restaurant which offers excellent local food. My favorite...More

We crossed the Merchant's Bridge several times. There were banners hung overhead across a part of it while we were there. From the river view it was colorful and there were a few bushes in bloom along the river bank which added to the charm.

Erfurt was extremely disappointing with respect to the people who we found to be overtly unwelcoming to tourists. The shops on this bridge had some slightly more friendly owners and the architecture was interesting.

I highly recommend to hire a local guide and to let him tell you all the story about this amazing bridge. A wonderful place and a must see in Erfurt!

great to see. Eat an ice cream in the special ice cream shop, just at the end of the bridge. Home made and excellent place to have seen

This is THE place you have to see in Erfurt - otherwise you have not been here. Tip: Pass by also from outside and see the tiny houses from another view. TOP!

From memory, most of the shops keep fairly normal "small business" times ... closing around 17:30-18:00. Again, I think there's only one café/restaurant on the bridge, which I don't think is open in the evening. However... More

No. Most accommodation in the city includes parking, and the main part of the city can be explored on foot or using the excellent tram system. However parking in the city is limited - if you're making a day visit park in one... More
