Erfurt. It's got a beautiful centre, is larger than Weimar and there's lots to see. Weimar is also nice, but it's an easy trip from Erfurt and perfectly doable in a day or even just a few hours.
There are several pages about both Erfurt and Weimar here on VT, have a look at them to decide.

I haven't been to Erfurt, but would have no hesitation recommending Weimer, because of it's cultural heritage.

Goethe and Schiller are linked with that city, as is Liszt and I would expect that there will be some special events as 2011 is the 200th anniversary of his birth.

The Bauhaus School also has its roots in Weimar.

Erfurt is a pretty place , with the merchants bridge etc. Erfurt is small and i saw what i wanted in a afternoon. See my Erfurt VT page. Hope this helps.

Weimar if you're into Schiller and Goethe, parks and castles. Erfurt if you're into a more lively city with beautiful old town and churches.
