Bamberg – Town on Seven Hills

As said “Unplanned trips are the best, because planned never happen”

… I truly believe in that after my trip to Bamberg. Few days ago, I had been to Nuremberg for some work and done with it by afternoon. Since I had Bayern Ticket, I just thought of going to some other place around Nuremberg. After checking in Google, I found some really beautiful places around Nuremberg and Bamberg was one of those. Then I went to Nuremberg Bahnhof and checked the train timings on display screen. Luckily, there was a train in 10 minutes from Nuremberg to Bamberg. It took around 45 minutes to reach Bamberg from Nuremberg. Finally, I got down in Bamberg and checked Google for sightseeing places over there.

The old town area of Bamberg was a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Bamberg’s world cultural heritage is divided into three main parts: Mountain town, Island town and Garden town – a unique mixture of historic town structures, which has been preserved over the centuries.

I took a bus

… just before Bamberg Central station to go to Rathaus. I would say that this Old town hall (Altes Rathaus) is a very unique architecture that was often referred by local people as as Island or Bridge Town hall. A lot of tunnels were also constructed beneath the town. When I checked about the construction of town hall, I came across an very interesting story. According to History, the Bishop of Bamberg did not want to give the citizens any space to build a town hall. This is why the Bamberg piles rammed into the Regnitz and created an artificial island on which they built the building. You can find some really beautiful images of this construction here.

Then, I walked to the back of this town hall.

There I came across magnificent view of half-timbered houses and small gardens as if they are clearly arranged in row. This area was called as “Little Venice”. There was also option of boating for visitors so that they can experience this beautiful view. I also heard from the people over there that the banks are constructed in such a way that any damage cannot be caused by several meters of flooding.

As said “Unplanned trips are the best, because planned never happen”, I truly believe in that after my trip to Bamberg.

From here, I walked through very beautiful narrow streets.

As Bamberg was one of the places which was not destroyed during World War II, I came across various constructions depicting holy Roman Empire. These medieval streets made Bamberg look so authentic and stunningly amazing.

I almost visited the whole important points through walk, thereby experiencing the architecture and the nature so close. Then I reached Bamberg Cathedral and New Residence Hall (Neue Residenz).
