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.

  • Everything fine and close together. Worth. Shopping at a small level possible. Otherwise annoy the minimum characters!

  • Beautiful town is surrounded by rivers is unclear. Hotel is ideal for enjoying the view of the city of roses in the rose garden, down the Hill, walk along the River as well. Photography is full of spots!

  • 躲過二次世界大戰的班貝格城於1993年UNESCO將整個古城定為人類世界珍貴遺產,行經此城的河流為雷格尼次河,富有[小威尼斯]的美名,水鄉澤國的小橋流水景緻,讓此地多了浪漫氣氛。

  • 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
