You'll fin here lots of restaurants, markets of various kind, including the one for Christmas, but also festivals. If nothing is going on, you can just enjoy the view of the Dom and take pictures.

When we visited - there wasn't anything actually happening in the Platz (Though I assume there are things from time to time). It has a lovely backdrop of the Cathedral, but when we were there - not a lot else was going on.

I was exploring Erfurt and came across the Cathedral and the town square in front of it. It is a large open area where they have Christmas Markets for the holiday. Off to the side are some small cafes for food and drink.

For a nice walk through the old town area, this is a must have seen! Not only the old cathedral, also the castle next to it, makes it absolutely worth it! On a nice sunny day it's a really nice spot to hang around and...More

When I came up to the platz from a side street my breath was taken away from the beauty. Of course we were there for the Christmas market and that help. But the massiveness of the area just stunning
