What to expect

Welcome to Bamberg, an ancient Bavarian town that is always worth a visit! Standing on seven hills surrounded by picturesque countryside and dominated by its imperial cathedral, Bamberg was a center of secular and ecclesiastic power for hundreds of years. Walk along its narrow streets, discover local legends, admire the authenticity of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town and enjoy the famous smoked beer.

The tour starts in front of Bamberg Cathedral, also known as the imperial Cathedral of St. Peter and St. George. Step inside and admire art treasures and the marble tombs of Emperor Heinrich II and his wife. Here you will also find the only papal grave in Germany and the popular Bamberg Horseman. Enjoy a walk to the Old Court, dating back to the 16th century. The Renaissance building was once the residence of the Bishop and is nowadays home of the Museum of History and St. Katherine’s Chapel. Pass through the "Beautiful Gateway" to get to the romantic inner courtyard and admire the surrounding half-timbered buildings.

Proceed to the New Residence, an impressive statement for the lavish life led by the local prince-bishop. Do not miss the Imperial Hall, the elector's room or the bishop's apartments. Before leaving, visit the Rose Garden and take in breathtaking views of Bamberg. After a pleasant stroll through the medieval Old Town, you will reach the Church of Our Lady, the only purely gothic church in town. Continue to the Island district and enjoy stunning views of the Old Town Hall, built in the middle of the river Regnitz.
