In the most recent episode of the radio show one of the Berlin guides recommends a day-trip (or longer) to Erfurt, and Rick goes into his usual commentary about Martin Luther, with the guide trying to make the case that there is more to Erfurt than Luther worship --
well it so happens that the current travel segment on DW TV, called 'check-in' does a full 25 minutes on Erfurt :
and makes the case indeed that there is plenty to like about the place.
I didn't realize that there's been a Jewish museum in Erfurt since 2009, and that it has a thriving underground music scene as well.
What caught my ear most, as usual with me, was the local Thuringia sausage varieties - more to put on my to-do list!
