ERFURT – in the center of Germany

Erfurt is the capital city of Thuringia and the main city nearest to the geographical centre of Germany. In 2010, Erfurt had a population of over 200,000 and is part of the Erfurt-Weimar-Jena metropolitan area with a population of about 500,000.

The town is first mentioned in 742 under the name of "Erphesfurt". Throughout the Middle Ages, it was an important trading town because of its location, near a ford across the Gera river. Erfurt has preserved an intact medieval city centre. The city is known for its two churches, Erfurt Cathedral (Mariendom) and Severikirche, which stand side by side and together form the emblem of the city. Both churches tower above the townscape and are accessible via huge open stairs called Domstufen.

The Erfurt Synagogue was built c. 1100. It is thought to be the oldest synagogue building still standing in Europe.
