Hotel location

Whether you would like to go strolling through the old town, go for a shopping tour or a day trip from the main train station, we are located right in the heart of Erfurt. The old town with its famous sights, the cathedral, the famous merchants bridge and the pedestrian zone, are only a few minutes' walk away. Thus, the hotel offers an ideal starting point to discover the city. The classic city of Weimar, well-known for its history of poets and thinkers such as Goethe, Schiller and Wieland is located only 20 minutes from here. The city of Eisenach is also just an hour's drive away. Towering above it is the famous Wartburg, where reformer Martin Luther translated the Bible into German.
