Bamberg is a town in northern Bavaria, Germany, laid out over 7 hills where the Regnitz and Main rivers meet. Its old town preserves structures from the 11th to 19th centuries including the muraled Altes Rathaus (town hall), which occupies an island in the Regnitz reached by arched bridges. The Romanesque Bamberg Cathedral, begun in the 11th century, features 4 towers and numerous stone carvings. (Wikipedia)
Hello everyone! We’ve just got back from our three-day visit in Bamberg. It’s a very charming place and we had fun walking around and discovering it. The weather might be a bit cold, but we didn’t mind. We took a train from Munich and it was a two-hour ride on the ICE-fast train. I just slept through the whole trip. Our hotel is near the train station so we’ve been walking around the town. The old town is brilliant, with all the canals, that’s why Bamberg is known as “Little Venice”. We visited their Residenz museum, very impressive, shame we couldn’t take photos inside. We also took their “hop on hop off” tourist bus when we couldn’t walk up the hills anymore. All in all, we enjoyed our holiday, our smile this week. So, what made you smile this week?
