Great place to start the exploration of the city, starting with an amazing view of the Cathedrals and the lower part of the city. Weekend (and I guess Christmas) market as a bonus.

Erfurt is one of the best preserved cities of Germany. The medieval landscape sights are still present at most places, but especially at the dom square. If you visit Erfurt you will anyhow get the know this place. Recommendable during Christmas.
