What fun, olde Germany as it was and should still be. Bombing during WWII robbed Germany of the history associated with many of their cities, not Bamberg. Strategically unimportant, this city survives as it has for centuries. The Ringhotel sits right across the street from an international beer landmark- Schlenkerla. This very traditional bierstube serves what many travel the world to find- the best example of smoked or rauchbiers in the world. (Also, for a great german dinner, fine beer, and a stunning view that rivals many of the worlds great olde city vistas, climb up the hill to the Spezial Brewery.)
The Ringhotel is classic in that old, out of square style associated with buildings that surive generations. We had a room on the second floor, complete with flower boxes out the window. There was some street noise at night, but it was amusing and part of the local flavour. Great food is all around you. The only down side to this hotel is driving in. Bamberg streets are extremely narrow, frequently one way, and poorly marked. We passed the hotel twice on the backside before finally parking our car out there and tipping a bellman to drive it around front and park it.
