WELCOME TO BAMBERG
Bamberg is located in southern Germany in the state of Bavaria and is chock full of history. The Bamberg cathedral and numerous historic buildings exude olden-day charm. The historic centre of Bamberg is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
One of the things you’ll find a lot of here is churches. The largest and most impressive is the cathedral which towers over the entire historic downtown. In the vicinity you’ll also find a castle called the “Neue Residenz”. You can enjoy a beautiful view of the historic part of town from the castle’s rose garden.
The old city hall is situated on the Obere Brücke (Upper Bridge). The bridge crosses the river “Linker Regnitzarm“. This is where you’ll find “Little Venice” (Klein Venedig) with its many old romantic buildings along the riverside. Bamberg’s largest funfair, the „“ takes place here every August.
On a mild summer evening you definitely should enjoy the sunset at „Untere Brücke“ with your friends!
In the summer time, the paths along the “Rechter Regnitzarm” are ideal for taking relaxing walks and enjoying the enchanting charm of the town.

The residents of Bamberg truly enjoy spending hot summer days at the swimming pool. The “Hainbadestelle” is a really nice spot where you can take a dip in the Regnitz River. After cooling off, you can take a walk through the Hainpark, Bamberg’s largest park.
If you want to go out for drinks at night, you can find a number of small bars and pubs on Sandstrasse. In some of them, you can also try out the famous Bamberg Smoke Beer.
