Neue Residenz Bamberg Reviews
Der Besuch hat sich gelohnt. Die Führerin war informativ, aber auch witzig mit ein paar Seitenhieben auf die Stadt(verwaltung) more »The visit was worth it. The guide was informative, but also funny with a few side-strokes on the city (administration)
This was a wonderful place to visit and we learned a great deal from our guide. The size of the palace and the display of wealth was mind boggling. more »
It was as majestic as the surrounding buildings. It had a beautiful garden we explored. We did not go into the castle but the cathedral and courtyard nearby gave you a sense of mediaeval times. At the garden was a beautiful lookout over the city.
Have to go on a guided tour at a set time. The tour is in German. There are guidebooks with information in English. Restoration work is being carried out to the main hall. At the end of the tour there are a few rooms with displays that you can look at at your leisure. Would have given it a higher rating if was allowed to go around at your own pace.
