Once in Erfurt, we picked up the Straßenbahn (streetcar) to the youth hostel. The most intersting thing in Erfurt was the Krämerbrücke, which is a bridge over the river where not only the road, but also the houses continue over. It's most interesting from the outside, or from the next side over, where you can see it arching over the water, and the back sides of the shops and houses and such. From the middle of the bridge itself you cannot tell that it is a bridge.
After a delicious dinner and a bottle of wine, we returned to the hostel for the night and an early bedtime, since we had an early morning the next day.
