By car ----- Erfurt lies on two federal motorways. Bundesstraße 4 from Ilmenau in south to Nordhausen in north and Bundesstrae 7 from Gotha in west to Weimar in east.
By train ---- The Erfurt Hauptbahnhof (main train station) is quite large. Numerous ICE and IC trains pass through daily, with direct lines to Berlin, Munich, Leipzig, Dresden and Frankfurt.
By plane ----- Not the best option for budget travellers. However, Air Berlin  flies to Erfurt airport from London and other locations.
