Zum Wenigemarkt 13

Top choice german in Erfurt

This upbeat restaurant in a delightful spot (an 18th-century house on the small marketplace at the eastern end of the Krämerbrücke) serves traditional and updated takes on Thuringian cuisine, starring regionally hunted and gathered ingredients where possible. Tender neck fillets of pork with sauerkraut and Thuringian dumplings and roasted char with potato-coconut purée are both menu stars.

The three-course menu (€28) is great value.
