Bamberg Altstadt, Bamberg

4.8
Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
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 Altstadt is absolutely worth a visit. It is very fine to walk through the city. Very good atmosphere. Good shops and cafés.  more »
  • A lovely little town full of great antique shops, sites well-worth visiting and typical restaurants. However, they do pull in the sidewalks early and it's best to get to the restaurants by 8pm.  more »
