What a great place to just wander. There is something of interest around every corner. It might be a shop, bar, restaurant, church or just a beautiful old building.

Bamberg is a beautiful old town that simply refuses to look like a modern town. Its old center is absolutely wonderful with churches, old houses and a charming vibe of a medieval town. you can easily spend half a day enjoying this beautiful small town.
