  • It is located next to the Bamberg Dom, 17th century building, was residence for Prince of Bishops. Now library, has a beautiful garden at the back side. Unfortunately, winter time was not good to spen...  more »
  • A single person is worth 4.5 European dollars, and winter time only ends at four in the afternoon. The first floor of the gallery is accessible, but the part of the main hall of the second floor must be led by the navigator. What we are involved in is the German guide, and fortunately I can still understand some of the languages, and the guides and the other participants are very interested in trying to translate some of the key words into English to me and make me feel the same. It is a pity that a large part of our visit is in the process of maintenance, and cannot see the whole picture.

  • fantastic building with a beautiful rose garden
  • Guided tour is required to see the rooms. The guide spoke in German and gave some highlights in English. Though the building has been preserved well most rooms are not very pretty.
  • The tour through the apartments was really great, with a guide who spoke excellent English and could explain the significance of each item or room. Bring your coat - it's not heated at all in winter!
  • This is a must see place in Bamberg. The overlooks of Bamberg are alone worth it. Very close to the city center and many other great destinations.
  • Very nice view and building
