Travelling by car

Park-and-Ride car parks (P+R)

You'll see signs for park-and-ride car parks (P+R) as you approach the city. There's also a parking information system to help you locate the various multi-storey and underground car parks in the city and to tell you how many free spaces they have.

Please note that the city centre car parks are often very busy while the Christmas market is on, owing to the high volume of visitors coming from all over Germany.

Our tip

For a hassle-free journey into the city centre, take the tram or bus or use the park-and-ride services on the outskirts of town, which are connected to the public transport network. Public transport provides a quick and easy route to Erfurt city centre and the Christmas market. Ticket machines are located at bus and tram stops.
