This evening I am in Erfurt, Germany. I decided to spend the night in Erfurt so that I had an easier trip to Frankfurt in the morning for my flight. Instead of getting up very early and hauling my bag for 20 minutes to the train station to catch a regional train. I am walking about a hundred meters from my hotel to the train station to catch an ICE train.
Above is the Krämerbrücke, which is a footbridge in Erfurt. The bridge spans the Breitstrom River. As you can see the bridge has houses and shops built on top of it.
Here is a large plaza named the Domplatz. It has a obelisk in the middle of it as well of a statue of Minerva which is not shown in this view. The plaza is lined by some very nice looking buildings. The picture is taken from the steps leading up to the Erfurt Cathedral.
I will not share the history of the site in this post, but may write one in the future after doing some more research.
A historic ordination took place in the cathedral in 1507. This is where Martin Luther was ordained as a priest.
The church building on the right is St. Severikirche which was built in about 1300. I have been in both of these church buildings. I will have to try and find the pictures that I took.
Now for some sleep before catching my train in the morning. It am reading to get home, but am teaching a course on Monday so there will be no time for a good rest.
