Create an itinerary including Bamberg Altstadt
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.

  • A very attractive neat place to visit and explore. Many sights to keep interest level flowing. Grab a cruise and experience sitting in a lock.

  • Walk it, just surrounded in splendid architecture and history. You won't leave disappointed. Autumn is a glorious time of year to visit.

  • Wow what life in this old town, not many get here it's great. We were near the top just below the church, had a beer and chips and watched people go by, really good life to the place. Should have spent more time here but had to keep going
  • A 09th century town with preserved medieval streets, walls and historic buildings. Also known as Franconian Rome, is a UNESCO world heritage site. Absolutely recommended to visit and at least stay one evening. It is an amazing, romantic, beautiful lovely small town always bustling with people with many bars and pubs around. Completely picturesque and vibrant with something for everyone. Absolutely worth all the time you will spend here.
