Town of Bamberg
From the 10th century onwards, this town became an important link with the Slav peoples, especially those of Poland and Pomerania. During its period of greatest prosperity, from the 12th century onwards, the architecture of Bamberg strongly influenced northern Germany and Hungary. In the late 18th century it was the centre of the Enlightenment in southern Germany, with eminent philosophers and writers such as Hegel and Hoffmann living there.City of Bambergtourism & congress serviceP.O.

Husband was stationed here from 2008-2011. I miss it so much. Cute German town with lots of history and friendly residents. Definitely go to the Altenberg Castle and Schloss Seehof (a palace). Great restaurant right outside of Bamberg called the Blau Grotte in Stegaurach. Awesome pizza schnitzel and salad. Inside is decorated like an underwater cave. Also Elida's Italian restaurant in Stegaurach is SO good! Great Italian food and fresh GELATTO! In the summer you can eat outside. We ate there weekly. Best doners in Bamberg can be found by the Atrium, the King Kebab Haus, address is Luitpoldstrasse 48. Loved going downtown and walking around. Especially by the canal. So beautiful! Another great restaurant downtown was Orlandos (another Italian restaurant). Or get fresh fruit and vegetables at the market. Or a warm crepe. I hope we can go back to Bamberg to visit very soon! The Beirfest in August/September (I can't remember which month) was a lot of fun too. Night life at the Mause Falle, Green Goose and the Irish Pub :) Lots of good memories! You'll never run out of things to do!
This is the most beautiful and romantic city in Germany (as far as I am concerned). We absolutely love to visit Bamberg..have been there MANY times and are ready to go back. Please include it in your travel plans.
The only reason I want people to stay away is because I don't want too many people to stay! I first visited Bamberg in 1989, and had the opportunity in 1991 to be stationed there. I fell deeply in love--with the city. The girl came later. Ultimately, I never left. Bamberg is home.
In my opinion, Bamberg is the greatest city in the world. This is perhaps the reason UNESCO recognized Bamberg as a world cultural treasure. Whether it is the Cathedral, Michael's Church, the Old City Hall, or the Market Place, Bamberg is yesterday playing everyday of today. Nevertheless, Bamberg is also modern, with shopping centers, theaters, and a world-class university. Unlike most American cities of its size, Bamberg has an outstanding public transportation system with which one can go anywhere throughout the surrounding area.
For the young and young-at-heart, Bamberg has numerous indoor swimming pools, lakes/ponds, picnic areas, bike paths (miles and miles!). Nightlife is great with numerous clubs, including Irish Pubs, regular dance clubs, and just places to sit down and relax. Restaurants range from traditional German Gasthauses to elegant to ethnic--Greek, Italian, and more. Yes, McDonalds and Burger King are here too. Ultimately, if you want to do it, it's in Bamberg.
So, stay away! Bamberg is the best kept open secret in Europe. If you visit once, you will never want to leave. The city is addictive! I just want the city I call my home to stay like it is. I don't want to wake up in a city of a half million!
Seriously, Bamberg is the Best!
I have lived in Bamberg for over a year and a half, now, and I love it. There is so much history here, as Bamberg was one of the few cities not completely destroyed during WWII. One of the most famous sites in Bamberg is the Kaiserdom, where the only Pope buried outside of the Vatican is entombed. Other beautiful sites in this marvelous city include Altenburg castle, Saint Michael's cathedral, the NeuRezidenz palace and rose gardens, "Little Venice"--part of "altstaadt" in the historic district and the shops line the waterfront. There are numerous festivals held in the Marktplatz throuhout the year. My favorites include the Weinachtsfest in December and the Sandkirkweih in the summer. Bamberg is also centrally located to other fabulous cities and towns in Franconia, including Wuerzburg, Erlangen, and Nuremberg. It's easily accessible via Autobahn or the Bundesstrasse (which is much more scenic). The cuisine in Bamberg is fabulous--everything from sidewalk cafes, to numerous bakeries, to cozy Gasthofs and four-star restaurants. My favorite restaurants include Ambrausianum, which features traditional Franconian cuisine and a special smoked house beer; Italia, which is a family owned and operated restuarant and features excellent authentic Italian cuisine; Callimero's, which features Tex-Mex style cuisine (my favorite, since I'm originally from Texas and I'm rather homesick despite the beauty of this city). If you're in the mood for a Turkish "Doener Kebap" then I highly recommend the Imbiss snack hut outside the Netto's store on BerlinerRing--they have the best Doners in town!
Bamberg is a small city dating back to medevil times, it's people are well cultured and friendly. The Beer, if you like Beer you will love this city, there are also several beautiful cathedrals you can visit and it's located about 40 minutes away from nurenburg.
Just wanted to let you know, we are living in Bamberg for the last 4 years. There is so much to see, the Dom for instand has one pope burried. During the summer they have an open air theater. Bamberg is Weltkulturerbe, an old town with fascinating history, wonderful beergardens and lots to see
