Bamberg Altstadt, Bamberg

(4.9/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
With buildings from as far back as the 11th century, Bamberg Altstadt has a remarkably intact core. You can see an interesting mixture of Baroque style and a quintessential old German feel at this site on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Look for the 13th-century cathedral, the 14th-century town hall, and the city castle. Several bridges connect the different streets and neighborhoods by way of a small island. Be sure to try the area's famous Rauchbier--a brew with an interesting smoked flavor. For a deeper look into the old town's history, pay a visit to the Benedictine monastery's small museum.

  • In particular the undestroyed, historic old town it can recommend everyone Bamberg. The 10 breweries, which are still in the city, so to speak, the beer capital of the world are the highlight of the city. Much to recommend also the ride on the main on a pretty small excursion boat. The child studied now here, that's why we come here like to for two reasons.

  • The best six months of my life. City that could seem small and monotonous and instead is convenient to everything, both to reach the major cities to stop and try the local specialties like smoked life and fun pub in the main street

  • Beautiful city, lively and full of young people because of the University, with a beautiful historic centre full of cobbled streets and ancient buildings which run on the banks of the river Regnitz. To see absolutely.

  • Tourist usualy starts the tour either around the Cathedral or at the Old Town area nearby the town hall. As I used to live there as a local, I see things differently. As soon as I live somewhere else, I know what a treasure the old town area of Bamberg is. Dont miss the Bridge over the river and the paintings there...
  • 欧洲最大的完整的老城区中心之一。楼很漂亮,维护得很好,很多无车区,所以你可以欣赏到这特别的老城中心的美妙感觉。附近有很多吃喝的地方。
  • Bamberg is a city that leaves no wishes open many breweries, churches and much more only recommended
