The historic city of Erfurt is underhyped but a fascinating town to explore, thanks to its range of stunning historic architecture. To make your holiday in Erfurt extra special and delightfully homely, why not book an Airbnb with a friendly local? Whether you wish to stay in the midst of nature far from the crowds or right in the thick of the best attractions in town, or want a combination of both, or you’re planning a romantic weekend or a getaway with a group of buddies, we have something suitable for you.
The façade of Roman’s apartment is undergoing renovation, so it is currently in a less-than-impressive state. However, don’t let that put you off—inside, this apartment is pure luxury. When we say luxury, we are talking rain showers, motion sensors, underfloor heating, automatic fireplace and soundproof windows. To top it, the apartment has an amazing entertainment system in place: 2.80m screen, 4K projector, B&W reference class speakers and an entire SKY library for you to enjoy. Up to seven guests can share this three-bedroom apartment located in a quiet, green area only seven minutes away from Erfurt city center. And you can even barbecue in the big garden and park your vehicles for free.
If you are in town for sightseeing and like to be right in the middle of all the action, Loic’s apartment is perfect for you. It is right in Erfurt old town, a mile and a half (2.5km) from the railway station, three miles (5km) from the airport and within walking distance of many of the highlights of Erfurt. Also, some of the best restaurants and cafés in Erfurt, as well as the Convention Center, is a stone’s throw from the apartment. The apartment is stylish, impeccably clean and very comfortable and can accommodate up to four guests.
Speaking of central, it simply can’t get any more central than Doreen’s apartment, though this is good for only up to two guests. It is located smack in the middle of the old town, right on the river. Treat yourself to wonderful views of the river as you lounge in the lovely living room or cook your favorite meals in the well-equipped kitchen. As you sip your coffee on the terrace, you can enjoy views of Erfurt‘s most famous landmark, Krämerbrücke. The apartment is a hop away from most of the major tourist destinations in town, plus a row of shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and cafés. Paid parking can be arranged in the vicinity of the house.
If you wish to spend your holiday away from the brick and concrete of the city, we have just the thing for you. Superhost Alexandra’s holiday house is nestled in a forest on the outskirts of Erfurt, but close to public transport. This large property can comfortably fit up to seven guests across two floors. The garden is a great place to relax. A slide, a sandbox and other toys ensure that the little ones in your group have a good time, too. The hosts live in another building in the same premises and are known to be very friendly and approachable. As an added bonus, the property provides free private parking.
Here is a property that combines the best of both worlds—it is tucked away in a parkland away from the busy town, yet is only a few minutes from Erfurt city center. For guests, the most attractive part of the property is the organic garden, a great spot to relax or barbecue. To add a special touch to your holiday, you can even book cooking lessons with the hosts. They are also happy to arrange for breakfast and other meals, excursions, tickets and tours, for a fee.
Here is yet another choice for a solo traveler or a couple who wishes to stay close to the city center. This recently-renovated property is in a peaceful residential neighborhood, only a few minutes away from the magnificent architecture of Erfurt Cathedral—one of the most significant sights of the city—and also conveniently close to other popular tourist spots.
