Altes Rathaus, Bamberg

(4.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Resting on an artificial island over the Regnitz River, Altes Rathaus, Bamberg's historic town hall, is one of the city's most iconic landmarks. According to legend, the citizens of Bamberg took ram stakes into the river to build the hall when the bishop refused to grant them any land for it. The building received its impressive Baroque and Rococo frescoes during the 18th century. Pass through large arches as you cross the bridge to the building, which divides the hillside Episcopal city from the bourgeois island city. Inside, you can visit the prestigious Rococo Hall and the Ludwig Collection, which includes precious porcelain. By using our Bamberg itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Altes Rathaus and other attractions in Bamberg.

  • Totally excited, I faced the old Bamberg City Hall the first time. The weather was great and the River had good water, as well as on the picture. The Town Hall, as well as the rest of the city has done it us, so that we will come again!
