Erfurt is the capital city of Thuringia and the most central German city. The University of Erfurt is the oldest in the region in what is now modern Germany. Its most famous graduate is Martin Luther, who later became a monk in Erfurt. The city is home to 77 churches and is therefore nicknamed “Thuringia’s Rome”.
