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.
