Krämerbrücke | Erfurt, Germany

Krämerbrücke (Merchants Bridge) in Erfurt, Germany.

Look very closely! Do you notice something unusual about this building?

This is actually a bridge and not a town house, as you probably thought. Krämerbrücke (Merchants Bridge) in Erfurt, is one of the few bridges in the world with occupied buildings above and it’s so well preserved.

Krämerbrücke was one of the sights I just had to have crossed from my photography list. Once I became familiar with my new camera, which I bought and was delivered to Berlin from Erfurt on the last moment before our road trip to Italy, I thought that it would be much better to pick it up on our way to the shop in Erfurt.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time in the town, but we had an opportunity to walk through the streets between the houses on the bridge. I must say, it was definitely a wonderful experience. The shops there specialise in hand made products and souvenirs which would also have been used as toys for children hundreds of years ago. The stone part of Krämerbrücke was built in 1325 but the houses located there have continuously been inhabited during the past 500 years – longer than any other bridge in Europe! If not for the modern outfits of passers-by, you could actually feel a little like you are still living in traditional medieval German city.

When we surrounded the complex of the buildings, we suddenly realised that we were walking along the Gera River. It was such a silent path in comparison to the busy bridge alley. We then saw Krämerbrücke with its colourful facades and traditional region ornaments. I know I might not be the only photographer in the world who has taken this photo, but this composition just had to make its debut into my portfolio.

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.

Maybe this place evokes some good memory for you?

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

I wish a high-quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
