  • We visited three times as we just loved the views over the rooftop. Simply lovely. Great place to soak up the atmosphere in an amazing town.  more »
  • The rose garden is a very beautiful area with great views of the Bamberg old town! The rose garden is located directly on the Cathedral Square, integrated into the new residence. Since the rose garden can be reached only through an archway, this beautifully landscaped facility is somewhat hidden.

  • The Bamberg old town overlooking the gardens visited in early summer, but Roses beautifully on the Hill is very beautiful.

  • 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.
  • Massive mansion with impressive gardens behind it.
  • Wonderful palace and square in front of it!
