Visit the charming medieval city of Erfurt on an overnight city break and enjoy 4-star accommodation, a privately guided tour, and entrance to the the Old Synagoge including the Erfurt Jewish treasure. Combining a city tour with plenty of free time, the package is a great way to get acquainted with the picturesque and historic city. Learn about the history of landmarks like the Erfurt Cathedral, the Merchant's Bridge, and the beginnings of the Reformation through Luther. A chocolate and praline tasting is included, as is a buffet breakfast at the hotel, and a ErfurtCard. This intimate package is specially designed for 2 guests.

Day 1:
Check in to the Erfurt hotel in the afternoon, meet your guide in the lobby, then head out on a 3-hour private walking tour to get acquainted with the history-laden sights of the city and to enjoy the chocolate tasting.

The city of Erfurt is like a picture-book of German history. It is home to the magnificent architectural ensemble of the cathedral and Church of St. Severus, elegant patrician houses, charming timber-framed buildings and many churches, which have earned the city its nickname the 'Rome of Thuringia'. This tour will take you on an interesting walk through the old quarter with the Merchants' Bridge (which has 32 buildings along its 120-meter length, making it the longest bridge in Europe to have inhabited buildings from end to end), the town hall, the university quarter and the many traditional town houses.

As Thuringia’s economic, intellectual, cultural and political center, Erfurt has always attracted great individuals, especially those who influenced the spirit of their age like Martin Luther, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, Johann Sebastian Bach, or Napoleon Bonaparte. Buildings that are closely associated with these figures, such as the Augustinian Monastery and the Imperial Hall, have been extensively restored to give visitors a vivid impression of the past. During the tour, you will also visit St. Mary's Cathedral. The cathedral and the Church of St. Severus, a remarkable ensemble, dominate the cityscape and are arguably the most important buildings in the city.

After all that history, it's time for some sweet treats. Enjoy a chocolate and praline tasting at the Goldhelm chocolate manufacturers. Your taste buds will love you for this short stop. If you're still up for some more history, you still have free admission to the Old Synagoge with the amazing Erfurt treasure. It features one out of seven still existing Jewish wedding rings from the Middle Ages, or you may choose to do this on the next day. The evening is free of any itinerary, so feel free to wander around town and enjoy your evening. Overnight: 4-star hotel in Erfurt

Day 2: (B)
Check out of your hotel after your continental buffet breakfast, and spend the day exploring the Jewish Heritage of Erfurt with your free entrance to the Old Synagoge, if you haven't done it the day before, or just do some sightseeing as you wish. You can also use your ErfurtCard to visit other museums.

Let’s begin this tour by the market square, a popular meeting place in Weimar. Many famous people were at home here. The renaissance painter Lucas Cranach the lived in one of the buildings close by, in the square. But it is mainly the classicists that attract the visitors that come here. Weimar is a city of pedestrians and all sites are close together. The architecture reflects the city's feudal days. The democracy Square used to be called the Duke's Square. Very fitting since it's surrounded by royal buildings: in this area you have the so called red and yellow palaces or the house where Duke Charles Augustus lived and next to it, a small palace that house a lovely library for centuries already. The dowager duchess Anna Amalia, whose name it bears, supported the library decisively and many treasures are to be found here. Amongst these, a document that offers a first indication of Wolfgang von Goethe's presence in the city. He ran a library for decades. Right next to Anna Amalia's Library, the Park an der Ilm was created in the 18 th century. It's renowned for its valuable trees and architectural gems, like the ruins of the Tempelherrenhaus. Goethe also played a part in designing the park. He spent his first years in Weimar in a very nice house to the park, a house that he received as a gift from Charles Augustus. After 1782, Goethe moved to a new and more impressive house on Frauenplan. Many of the rooms look exactly as they looked in the last years of the poet's life. The study in which he wrote works like Faust is unchanged. Goethe stayed in Weimar until his death in 1832. The composer Franz Liszt spent many summers in one of the houses of Weimar. Just like Goethe, Liszt received a house, as a gift from the local Duke. In his house from Weimar, the composer thought young pianists from all over Europe for free. The next stop is where Friedrich Schiller lived. An assembly brought Schiller and Goethe together. When the two of them met, impressed by Schiller, Goethe invited him to Weimar. From that moment, an intense creative association existed between them. Weimar classicism can be traced in the dowager duchess Anna Amalia, who lived in the Widow's Palace. She was a very well educated and ambitious woman. She hosted a lot of lustrous gatherings there and among the guests, were, of course, Goethe and Schiller. The two of them now attract the attention of the tourists as a memorial in front of the National Theater.
