St. Michael's Church, Bamberg
(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
St. Michael's Church was built atop the highest of the seven hills in Bamburg in the 12th century. Follow the old, cobbled road up the hill from the cathedral, past ancient houses to the church, with all of Bamburg below you. Take some time to explore the surrounding woods and gardens. Inside the church, rest in the peaceful surroundings that are enhanced by many paintings. The most interesting are on the ceiling; it's covered with paintings of hundreds of medicinal and exotic plants, many of which were once grown in the herb gardens on the grounds. Make St. Michael's Church a centerpiece of your Bamberg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bamberg vacation planner.

  • 我們來參觀班貝格城最著名的地標就是這間St. Michael's Church,她有四個綠色哥德式尖塔大教堂,這裡是德國宗教歷史聖地,很幸運有進去參觀,因為長眠於此有三位名人:亨利二世(Heinrich II)、坎妮皇后(Kunigunde)及偉大的教宗克雷門二世(Clemens),似乎西方人不介意紅白喜喪擺一塊,這也讓此地成為阿爾卑斯山以北唯一教宗的墓地。 
  • Definitely a site to visit, too bad that both the Church and the monastery (though already converted to Senior Center and then not open) are undergoing restructuring. Worth the climb up the Hill for the nice view of the town.

  • Elegant look from outside and also inside the cathedral. Located on the hill. It is landmark of the city. Do not miss when you are there.
