  • 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.
  • Guided tours of residency held in German. Otherwise texts in English, Spanish, Japanese or Italian that you can carry during the tour. There's a gallery to tour yourself while you wait for the guided tour. 3.50 euro student price per person. Lockers available for belongings.rose garden just outside. Close walk to the Dom.
  • Wonderful palace and square in front of it!
