ERFURT, Germany 🇩🇪

Christmas Markets 2023

For our final Christmas market tour, we are in Erfurt, the capital of the German state of Thuringia. The Erfurt Christmas Market is located in the city’s old town, surrounding the Mariendom (St. Mary’s Cathedral) and St. Severi Church. Typically, this market operates from late November until just before Christmas. There are over 100 stalls offering traditional Thuringian crafts, foods, and Christmas decorations. Highlights include a large, decorated Christmas tree, the pyramid and a nativity scene featuring life-sized wooden figures.

We start on the main market at Domplatz, visit the Erfurt cathedral and then check out smaller markets all around the city. A nice and cozy setting is the Brückenadvent at Krämerbrücke. We walk around the Anger, see the Domplatz yet again before hiking up the Petersberg (with an elevator to the viewing platform).

Out tour ends there yet this video features a little extra - some 32' minutes of extra footage I took just with the camera walking back to the train station after sunset.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
