Franconian Rome

First mentioned in historical records from the year 902, Bamberg retains today the medieval, old-world charm that has defined its past development. Home to stunning architecture and a picturesque riverside setting, the entire town is in fact considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Though its many surrounding hills and antique appearance may make it seem bucolic, Bamberg in fact possesses a lively student population, contributing to its energetic spirit and surprisingly active nightlife. In addition to its traditional German pub-style cooking, the town’s most famous product comes in the form of a certain “smoked beer”, brewed in multiple places around the city. Perhaps amongst the best-preserved towns in Germany, Bamberg combines its ancient charm and splendor with an atmosphere replete with culture, the arts, and outdoor activities. Add Bamberg and other destinations to your itinerary using our Germany family vacation planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
