A visit to the city in an enchanting setting combined with an outdoor vacation – you can have both when you rent an RV in Erfurt. The city of rivers and bridges is an ideal starting point for discovering the Thuringian Forest, the Kyffhäuser Mountains with the imposing Kyffhäuser Monument, and the Saale-Unstrut wine region. It is also worth renting bikes in the Erfurt area, as there are cycle paths along the Gera, Ilm, and Saale rivers that lead to picturesque landscapes.

Best time of year to visit Erfurt

You can rent a camper van in Erfurt at any time of year, but the spring, summer, and fall months are ideal for extended hikes, nature observation, and outdoor activities.

Between April and September, the weather is pleasantly mild, nature is in full bloom, and the temperatures are warm enough for outdoor pursuits. In April, consider visiting the Erfurt Spring Festival, and in June, enjoy the Krämerbrücken Festival, the largest Old Town festival in Thuringia. From September to November, temperatures remain mild, offering optimal conditions for hiking or cycling tours amid the vibrant fall landscape. During the low season, you’ll benefit from less crowded campgrounds and lower prices.
