Culture - Museums / Exhibition rooms
The former Electoral-Mainzian Pack- und Waagehof from the beginning of the 18th century with its magnificent, richly decorated façade is one of the most beautiful buildings in the old town of Erfurt. More than a hundred years ago, in 1886, a picture gallery was opened here. From this, other special museums developed in a short time. Today, the Stadtpalast am Anger houses the art museum of the state capital Erfurt: here you can see landscape paintings, still lifes and portraits from the 19th century to the present day, as well as the largest collection of Thuringian works and crafts. Prominent is the most important collection of medieval art from Erfurt and Thuringia with works of international rank. On the first floor is one of the few surviving German Expressionist murals by Erich Heckel. • Parking in the multi-storey car park "Forum I" • There is a public car park 200 m away (Hirschlachufer 86). • Public transport: anger stop - all lines • The S-Bahn station "Anger" is 40 m away. • Guided tours for people with physical disabilities, it is necessary to reserve in advance.
