Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Bamberg.
For notorious nostalgics, Bamberg should be a worthwhile destination. The reasons? You name it: The ornate town hall, the old town with its half-timbered buildings and pretty arched bridges, and last but not least, the quiet canals: so romantic!
It's not easy to become a World Heritage Site. You have to have a lot to offer. Like Bamberg, the city in Upper Franconia with its nearly 80,000 inhabitants and its Romanesque imperial cathedral. First, a geographical side note: Like the Eternal City, Bamberg was built on seven hills and is sometimes referred to as Franconian Rome.
The city was lucky in the Second World War: many buildings in the old town were preserved and now form a listed ensemble between medieval and baroque architecture. Anyone who wants to know more about it: Everything is explained in the best possible way at the World Heritage Visitor Center in the Old Town.
Other recommended visits: On the highest of Bamberg's seven hills rises the Altenburg - the panoramic view from here over the city is unique. The Old Town Hall and the Cathedral Square of Bamberg are among the classics and can hardly be overlooked. On the other hand, you have to look a little longer for a gondolier, who takes you through the Bamberg canals in a slender gondola. This, in turn, no longer looks like Rome, but rather like Venice - so much Italy in the middle of Franconia!
