Like Rome, Bamberg sits on seven hills, though these are lush, green Bavarian ones. You’ll find all sorts of architecture here, so enjoy exploring the cobbled streets. Plenty of shopping and museums await you, as do nine different breweries. The city loves markets and festivals, especially around Christmas.

Fantastic experience! The actor was great, giving a very comprising overview of Bamberg's history. Very entertaining

From the 10th century onwards, this town became an important link with the Slav peoples, especially those of Poland and Pomerania. During its period of greatest prosperity, from the 12th century onwards, the architecture of Bamberg strongly influenced northern Germany and Hungary. In the late 18th century it was the centre of the Enlightenment in southern Germany, with eminent philosophers and writers such as Hegel and Hoffmann living there.
This preserved UNESCO site will allow your thoughts to take you through time to picturesque moments from the present to the Middle Ages. Simply gorgeous. It is a must see!

This stunning building is the centre piece of Old Town Bamberg and houses the famous Bamberger Rider sculpture which was mistakenly identified by the Nazis. Unfortunately, whilst I was there the building was undergoing restoration inside and out which clouded my judgement. The surrounding area has some beautiful architecture and the rose garden next to the Dom would be spectacular when in bloom. Still as part of the medieval walking tour it is worth a visit.

Garden forms part of the The New Residenz and contains thousands of roses. Not at their best at the time of our visit but worth a wander round. Garden also provides an opportunity to soak up the views over the town.

Walk up from Bamberg is hardly strenuous if you are of fit mind and body. Views are nice but not spectacular. Much of the 'castle' was reconstructed in the period of the Romantic movement. It is all free, mind. Nice little restaurant in the courtyard where you can have a lovely beer before you head back. All-in-all a decent couple of hours spent.

The title is filling you with expectations. That aside, is my favorite spot in Bamberg. The running water and the dam, the extended houses over the river, the bridge with the old town hall, all gives you a very nice feeling and fantastic photo shooting opportunities.

Impressive building located in close proximity to the Cathedral and Old Courtyard. Very similar in appearance to the Residenz building in Wurzburg but certainly not as large. Didn’t have time to visit inside during our guided tour but would visit next time. Adjacent rose garden is well worth wandering round as it provides views overlooking the town.
