1,000 years of Bamberg imperial cathedral

Last weekend saw the start of celebrations for the thousand-year anniversary of Bamberg imperial cathedral. Part of this is a special exhibition running until 31 October 2012: 'Towards the heavens – 1,000 years of Bamberg imperial cathedral 1012-2012' offers a journey back through a millennium of history and grants access to places usually closed to visitors. The cathedral treasury also welcomes the return the Reliquary Crown of Henry II in replica form. A host of family events in the coming weeks provide a great opportunity to join in the celebrations.
