You must visit it. Extraordinary church. If you like gothic style buildings in excellent conditions and well maintained. The visit is free of charge.

You can visit this place winter or summer. It's a top5-must in Erfurt. The entrance in the Cathedral is free, so you can visit inside too.

Be sure and attend an organ concert. During Christmas markets, they have a stunning floral show below the Cathedral for a very nominal entrance fee. Actually was the highlight of our market visit.

Erfurt Cathedral is a lovely cathedral. Since we visited during the Christmas season, it was very crowded but lovely all the same. Very dramatic location up on the hill and a definite icon of Erfurt.

This Cathedral is huge for its population, sits high up on a hill. It is beautiful inside and outside, well worth a visit.

There is some fine stained glass to admire here, above the choir. There is also a tall candelabrum in the shape of a man holding out his arms that each hold a fat candle. This was made in 1160 and is unusual and arresting.

This church has very old parts but is made larger and more beautiful over a long period. There is a relic from Bonifatius, the bisschop who tried to convert the locals to cristianity. The church is very long.

We had planned to go inside, but having criss-crossed town several ways on foot, fatigue and the steps changed our minds.
