History

Erfurt was first mentioned in 742 under the name of "Erphesfurt". It was an important trading town during the Middle Ages near a ford across the Gera river. Together with the other five Thuringian woad-towns of Gotha, Tennstedt, Arnstadt and Langensalza it was the centre of the German woad trade. In 1392 Erfurt University was founded, which was famous in its time, became defunct in 1816, and was refounded in 1994 by the Thuringian state parliament. In 1802 Erfurt became a part of Prussia, in 1806 a part of France and in 1815 again a part of Prussia. Although enclosed by Thuringian territory, the city remained Prussian until 1944.
