Altes Rathaus over the river
Bamberg is in Bavaria, Germany. The whole town of Bamberg is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Walking is best throughout the Altstadt (old city center). The Hauptbahnhof (train station) is less than two kilometers northeast of the Altstadt. Walk or take a bus.
- The Dom contains the intruiging Bamberg Rider sculpture. No one knows for sure who the young royal rider is.
- The Altes Rathaus is perched in the middle of a bridge above the Regnitz River and is a must-see. More infos: www.bamberg.de or www.bamberg-germany.info
- Walk around and simply enjoy.
- Try Rauchbier (English: Smoked beer), unique to Bamberg. The two main brewers are Schlenkerla and Spezial, both of whom have taverns where you can sample the beers.
