Religious Site Church
Marking the heart of the city is Museen um den Bamberger Dom--also known as Cathedral Hill and the home of the Imperial Cathedral of St. Peter and George. Choose from four tours and be ready to be impressed with its altitude on top of one of the seven hills of Bamberg. Dating back more than a millennium to the reign of Holy Roman Emperor Henry II, the Gothic/Romanesque cathedral contains the grave of Pope Clement II. The Bamberg Horseman, an intricate equestrian statue by an unknown artist, is also worth a look. To visit Museen um den Bamberger Dom on your trip to Bamberg, use our Bamberg vacation trip planner.
