Getting here and parking

Getting here

Because of its central location, Erfurt benefits from an excellent infrastructure, including an airport, ICE connection and motorway intersection. The city is located at a major railway intersection in the centre of Germany. Because of its link to the main Frankfurt/Main-Erfurt-Halle/Leipzig line and the Ruhr Area-Kassel-Erfurt-Chemnitz central German rail link, the city of Erfurt can be reached quickly and easily.

The DomStufen-Festspiele is held at the foot of the Domberg on Domplatz. It can also easily be reached on foot from Erfurt’s main railway station. Visitors can also catch tram line 4 from the station to the “Domplatz Süd” tram stop. From other directions (and also from the main railway station), the “Domplatz Nord” stop can be reached using tram lines 3 and 6.


There is sufficient parking in the car park ‘Parkhaus am Domplatz’ for the DomStufen-Festspiele. Parking for the disabled plus 15 parking spaces for buses are provided right by the Domplatz.
