Since the 4th July, 2008, residents and visitors admire the venerable old town of Erfurt in a scale model.

The bronze replica provides a comprehensive overview of the many half-timbered houses, churches, streets and alleys of the city center. Especially blind and visually impaired visitors is the 200-pound bronze plate a welcomed guide.

The artist Egbert Broerken created the impressive plastic and labeled the streets and buildings with Braille. With the help of over 3.000 photos, aerial images and cadastral maps created by the sculptor, he finally created the impressive bronze sculpture on a scale of 1:780.

As the map is a gift of the Rotary Club Erfurt-Krämerbrücke to the city of Erfurt, the map's a great success for enthusiastic residents and visitors alike.

For further informations please visit the german languaged website of the Rotary Club Erfurt-Krämerbrücke.
