What to see in Bamberg

Bamberg, situated in the heart of Upper Franconia, Germany, is a city where the past and present converge in a beautiful tapestry of culture, history and tradition. Known for its picturesque landscape and rich architectural heritage, Bamberg offers a myriad of experiences for those who dock at its port.

A journey through Bamberg must undoubtedly begin at its historic old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area, characterised by its medieval layout and well-preserved buildings, tells stories of centuries past. The Bamberg Cathedral, with its four imposing towers, stands as a testament to the city's religious and architectural heritage. This 13th-century cathedral is a masterpiece of Romanesque and Gothic styles and houses the famous Bamberg Horseman, a striking statue that has intrigued art historians for years. Nearby, the Alte Hofhaltung and Neue Residenz (Old Court and New Residence) showcase the opulence of the former bishops of Bamberg. The Rose Garden of the New Residence offers a panoramic view of the city and is a splendid spot for relaxation amidst beautifully manicured flower beds.

No cruise to Bamberg is complete without experiencing its unique beer culture. Bamberg is renowned for its Rauchbier, a traditional smoked beer that has been a local speciality for centuries. The city is dotted with numerous breweries and beer gardens where visitors can indulge in this unique brew. A popular choice is the historic Schlenkerla, one of the oldest breweries in Bamberg, known for its Rauchbier and traditional Franconian cuisine. Beer enthusiasts can also embark on a guided brewery tour to learn about the brewing process and the history of beer-making in Bamberg. These tours often include tastings, providing an opportunity to sample a variety of local beers.

Another significant aspect of Bamberg is its waterways. The city is sometimes called Little Venice due to its picturesque network of canals reminiscent of the famous Italian city. A boat tour along the Regnitz River is a delightful way to experience Bamberg’s beauty from a different perspective. These tours navigate through the old town and the fishermen’s district, offering views of historic houses and serene landscapes. The boat ride is both informative and relaxing, allowing visitors to appreciate the city's charm as they glide past its medieval structures and lush greenery.
