What to see in Bamberg ?

On the river Regintz is a strip of buildings which mainly constructed in the middle ages. Formerly the fishermen’s village, this part of Bamberg has been one of the most favorites, tagging it as the Little Venice in Franconian Rome.

A main attraction is City Hall that lies in the middle of the Regnitz River.  It was originally placed in 1386 but was reconstructed from 1744 up to 1756 to widen the services to the public. The impressive location of the hall in the island is amazing. Best foto shooting spot is from the bridges on the opposite side. Legend tells that people failed to get a land from the Bishop, where they can build the town hall, so they put up a human-made island where city hall has somewhere to stand to.

The 11th-century Cathedral is considered as one of Germany’s most important models of architecture from Romanesque to the Gothic period. It exhibits not only the royal couple’s tomb but as well as the Bamberg Horseman, the altar by Veit Stoss, and the papal tomb of Clemens II.

Old City of Bamberg is UNESCO World heritage site.
