Lined on both sides with inhabited half-timbered houses, Erfurt's oldest and best-known symbol is unique in all of Germany.
Crossing the River Gera, and linking Benedict's Square on one side with Wenigemarkt Square on the other, the bridge was originally named after the merchants ("Krämer"), who used to hawk their wares on this former trading route. Originally constructed from wood, Krämerbrücke was first mentioned officially in 1117. Today you will find its route lined with arts and crafts shops and antiques businesses. Browsers welcome!
