Fin gård och intressanta faktaskyltar där du kan lära dig om Gotlands historia med avseende på hur man levde och byggde sina gårdar. FInns även djur att titta på samt en lekplats för barnen att springa av sig. Maten var dock inte någon höjdare. Kanske beroende på att vi kom "off season", men det var micromat och tämligen oinspirerat. Både mat och de som serverade. Kanske hade vi bara otur den dagen vi var där. Jag rekommenderar ändå ett besök, men ha inte för höga förhoppningar kring mat. I bästa fall blir ni positivt överraskade.

Så mysigt och vackert ställe! Fin gammal gotländsk museigård med café där man kan välja att sitta ute i den fina trädgården eller inomhus. Butik, en rolig lekplats samt lite djur som barn brukar uppskatta mycket att titta på. Ett givet besök varje sommar!

Mysigt för familjer med yngre barn. Stor lekplats, djur man kan mata och sist men inte minst fika/enklare mat i fin historisk miljö.

Erfurt Synagogue

The Erfurt Synagogue was built c. 1094. It is thought to be the oldest synagogue building still standing in Europe. Thanks to the extensive preservation of the original structure, it has a special place in the history of art and architecture and is among the most impressive and highly rated architectural monuments in Erfurt and Thuringia. The synagogue was constructed during the Middle Ages on the via regia, one of the major European trade routes, at the heart of the historical old quarter very close to the Merchants Bridge and the town hall. Many parts of the structure still remain today, including all four thick outer walls, the Roman­esque gemel window, the Gothic rose window and the entrance to the synagogue room.

After extensive restoration, the building was reopened in 2009. On display in the exhibition rooms is an collection of medieval treasures discovered during archaeological excavations. This includes 3,140 silver coins, 14 silver ingots, approx. 6,000 works of goldsmithery from the 13th and 14th centuries and an intricately worked wedding ring of the period, of which only two others are known to exist anywhere in the world. A mikveh (Jewish bath) has been excavated close by (13th/14th century). The Old Synagogue, the Small Synagogue and two Jewish cemeteries together form a network of historical buildings and sites which vividly portray the role of Jewish life in the history of Erfurt.
