Bamberg Altstadt, Bamberg

4.8
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. Bamberg Altstadt is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Bamberg Edition.

  • 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...
  • The Bamberg old town is always worth a visit! Simply beautiful in every season. The impressive churches, mixed with narrow streets and colourful houses façade invite directly to a journey of discovery!
