With buildings from as far back as the 11th century, Bamberg Altstadt has a remarkably intact core. You can see an interesting mixture of Baroque style and a quintessential old German feel at this site on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Look for the 13th-century cathedral, the 14th-century town hall, and the city castle. Several bridges connect the different streets and neighborhoods by way of a small island. Be sure to try the area's famous Rauchbier--a brew with an interesting smoked flavor. For a deeper look into the old town's history, pay a visit to the Benedictine monastery's small museum. Bamberg Altstadt is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

The whole old city center is a world heritage site and it is beautifully maintained displaying the rich history of Bamberg. They have plenty of restaurants and coffees where you can make a stop.

A surprising good museum! Our visit was quiet and made it easy to slowly browse and read (thanks to Google translate!) most information signs. A few signs had English too, but most were just in German.
Lovely old town with beautiful sights. The only downside, which seems true all along the Rhineland-Palatinate and Main rivers, is that any tourist signs are only in German.
