Another restaurant that I go to often is Ballenberger's located in the Gotthardstraße, a cobbled cul-de-sac. Like the Güldenen Rade, the owners and staff renovated Ballenberger's during lockdown. Ballenberger's has a warm, intimate charm. The charming waitresses pitched in, which gives the interior its feminine sweetness.

Kathrin, the tall blonde on the right, is also a painter, painted most of the pictures in the place, and also chose the colors for the walls. Notice how the colors in the centre flower arrangement resonate in the painting behind it. The artistic intelligence of the design really impressed me. Each place in Erfurt has its own appealing decorative ambiance.
