Beer & Gossiping in medieval Erfurt

Erfurt Old Town ©Bjoern RudekWhile visiting Erfurt Germany I was struck by a few accoutrements on the medieval buildings that still adorn the streets of this Thüringen city.  Back in the day brewing rights were given to certain buildings in the city.

Erfurt’s Krämerbrücke

There are many reasons to visit Erfurt and one of them is the Krämerbrücke or Merchant’s Bridge. Florence Italy may have its Ponte Vecchio but Erfurt Germany has the 120 meter long Krämerbrücke which is the only bridge in Europe that has houses along its entire length that are still inhabited!
