Travelling by train

Erfurt is easy to reach by train. And it's not far from the main train station to Erfurt Christmas market. In fact, passengers are greeted by some Christmas stalls on Willy-Brand-Platz square right outside the station. These huts mark the start of Erfurt Christmas market, which stretches across Schlösserbrücke bridge and various squares all the way to Domplatz square, the heart of the action and where you'll find the Nativity scene, the enchanted forest, the Christmas pyramid, the children's eco-bakery and much more besides.

Allow about 15 minutes to walk from the station (Willy-Brandt-Platz) to Domplatz square. Alternatively, you can take the tram from the station to stops on the Anger, Fischmarkt square or straight to Domplatz square. Tickets are available from the machines on board the trams.
