St. Michael's Church, Bamberg

(4.2/5 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.

  • 我們旅行團來到班堡參觀了這裡, 導遊帶我們詳細的介紹這間St. Michael's Church, 很棒的歷史,地下室,雕像,等等。 它是在一個小山頂, 所以要做好準備爬一個陡峭的斜坡步驟或步行, 而且山頂上還可以看到美麗的城市景色
