Where to Go in Germany

The Town Centre of Erfurt

"The Erfurt town centre in Germany to visit when hiking in the area"

The Thuringian state capital of Erfurt is not, strictly speaking, part of the Rennsteig, but you should make the detour – under an hour or so – when you are hiking in the area. Enjoy its old world cafes and shops.

The historical town centre has been meticulously restored, and since Erfurt was safely tucked away behind the Iron Curtain when the craze for cheap concrete-and-glass architecture laid much of Western Germany to waste in the 1950s and 1960s, it gives you views that you cannot experience in any other German city.
