There's a lot to see and do in the state capital, which, with more than 200,000 inhabitants, is the largest city in the Free State of Thuringia and is considered to be one of the most attractive cities in Germany. Hundreds of years ago, Erfurt was already an important traffic junction: in the Middle Ages, two important trade routes crossed here, the Via Regia and the Nuremberg Geleitsstraße, which helped Erfurt gain in importance and wealth. The city, first mentioned in 742, still owes much of its attraction and radiance to its historic trade in woad, a plant that was used to dye fabrics blue.
