The Brühl is a district of the Thuringian capital Erfurt , which administratively belongs to the districts of Altstadt (east) and Brühlervorstadt (west). It is located in the Gera valley between the former inner (10th century) and the former outer city wall (14th century), roughly between today's Gothaer Platz and Domplatz . In the Middle Ages, the Mainzer Hof , a piece of land that belonged to the Archbishop of Mainz and was cultivated for him, was located in Brühl . Otherwise the Brühl was characterized by orchards and loose buildings. When industrialization began in the 19th century, the Brühl became one of the first industrial areas in Erfurt, which did not change until 1990. The Optima office machines were manufactured here and the Funkwerk was also based in Brühl. After the industrial use of the 22 hectare area was discontinued in 1990, the factories were partially demolished and urban use was developed for the Brühl. The new Erfurt theater was built there. The Federal Labor Court also got a new building here. Finally, the tram line between Domplatz and Gothaer Platz, which was closed in 1978, reopened. The Brühler Garten , a central park in Erfurt, is also located in the Brühl .
