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.
