Antiguo ayuntamiento de Bamberg


Una joya en la isla y los canales de Bamberg

La antigua burguesía bamberguense habitaba en esta parte de la ciudad y eso queda patente en la cantidad de edificios singulares que podrás encontrar junto a los canales. El más impresionante es el antiguo ayuntamiento ubicado sobre un puente que constituye una isla artificial. Los frescos pintados en su fachada añaden más plasticidad a este lugar único del barroco. Hacía tiempo que no veía un monumento tan original y exquisito.

Barrio de los horticultores


Horticultores que son Patrimonio de la Humanidad

La presencia de los horticultores en Bamberg data de la Edad Media. Se trata de una tradición muy arraigada que ha marcado el desarrollo del paisaje urbano de la ciudad. Todavía hay muchas casas típicas que se pueden visitar junto a sus huertos urbanos. Son fácilmente reconocibles por sus grandes portales que permitían el paso de los carros de caballos hasta los patios exteriores.

Todavía quedan muchas familias de horticultores que conservan sus tradiciones medievales y que venden sus excelentes productos frescos en los mercados locales.

All Things Bamberg

48 hours in Bamberg

Navigating S-Bahns and U-Bahns, passing Crobags and Currywurst stands on every corner, and hopping from one national museum to another…Germany’s big cities have a lot to offer, but they leave my head spinning after a while.

Following three days in Munich, I knew I needed to see a slower pace of German life. So I started heading north, and BAM! There it was: Bamberg. Just 45 minutes north of Nuremberg sits this Baroque gem of a city. Although technically in Bavaria, Bamberg has its own distinct Franconian culture.

Starting from the heart of the city, I fell in love with its old town hall, covered in colorful frescos.
It's wedged on the tip of a small, artificial island on the Regnitz River, which with the series of bridges leading to and from it, makes it look a bit like Venice. Around this, Bamberg has plenty to see and do from hikes to museums to breweries. Armed with a transport and museum BAMBERGcard and passes to the city’s BeerTaster tour, I set out to find the best brews and views it had to offer:

*Hop on Bus 910 up to St. Michael’s Abbey and The Franconian Brewery Museum*
Check out the beautiful Baroque church, and you’ll also be rewarded with a tour of the Franconian Brewery Museum, where you can see the history of how the city’s tastiest beverages are created.

*Hike up to Altenburg Castle*
Whether you start from St. Michael’s or the old town, you’ll have a green hike to what was formerly the city’s main line of defense. Stop for lunch in the castle’s café and check out the great panoramic view of the city.

*Try the Rauchbier*
This is the signature beer of Bamberg: a smoky, almost bacon-flavored beer. (That’s right, bacon.) After that, feel free to sample one of the other 300 types of beer brewed in the city.

*Take Bus 912 to catch a beautiful view from Greifenklau*
Or if your staying at Bamberg’s main hostel, Jugendherbergen Am Kaulberg, it’s just a 10-minute walk. Greifenklau’s biergarten looks out over the treetops and offers a peak at Altenburg castles.
