Bamberg Cathedral, Bamberg

4.6
Marking the heart of the city is Bamberg Cathedral--also known as Cathedral Hill and the home of the Imperial Cathedral of St. Peter and George. Choose from four tours and be ready to be impressed with its altitude on top of one of the seven hills of Bamberg. Dating back more than a millennium to the reign of Holy Roman Emperor Henry II, the Gothic/Romanesque cathedral contains the grave of Pope Clement II. The Bamberg Horseman, an intricate equestrian statue by an unknown artist, is also worth a look.

  • Very nice medieval town/city. Well worth a visit, someone told us there are 120 bridges. You can have a goldela boat trip, just like in Venice. Lots of guided tours available from tourist office. Park and ride, many car parks about 2 euro per he approximately. Have a good trip.
  • This old church is very famous for its gothic architecture... The couple saints are very influential to the people of that time through their devotion and love to Jesus Christ which reflected in their daily lives.... Many people are visiting their tomb in this cathedral...
