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!

Enjoy and linger on this fascinating bridge. Read about the history, linger in the stores. Enjoy the museum and take pictures in and around it. We also had a wonderful ice-cream at one of the very busy shops as well as a fine meal. Charming..

Amazingly well preserved piece of medieval architecture and history still serving its function of a trading place with many tiny shops and cafes. Nice view from its outer side.

You only realize it's a brigde seeing it from aside, while walking trough it, seems like another commercial street. I loved the city, and the Altstadt is very beautiful and charming.

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
