St. Michael's Church was built atop the highest of the seven hills in Bamburg in the 12th century. Follow the old, cobbled road up the hill from the cathedral, past ancient houses to the church, with all of Bamburg below you. Take some time to explore the surrounding woods and gardens. Inside the church, rest in the peaceful surroundings that are enhanced by many paintings. The most interesting are on the ceiling; it's covered with paintings of hundreds of medicinal and exotic plants, many of which were once grown in the herb gardens on the grounds.

  • Beautifully located on the Michielberg, high above Bamberg, certainly seze walk and drinking beer in the brewery is definitely recommendable, very nice view over the city!

  • The church is located on Michelsberg and can be seen far around and you have probably the city's best views from here. But unfortunately, it happens that one must restore old buildings and that is the case with the church and it pulls out some years yet. But walk or take the bus up to Michelsberg anyway, here is beautiful and here there are both cafes and restaurant and nice paths through the old wine mountain down to the cathedral. Must come again later.
