Place is historical and very beautiful! It’s located right inside the city and after you see this you can walk around and there’s plenty to do!

Small but beautiful old town. However, very crowded, specially on the weekends. Stroll along the river and enjoy the view over the big city.

Bamberg is a beautiful town and the Altes Rathaus on the island is just amazing. You can get a great view of it from the wooden bridge (this is where the photos are always taken from). Great pubs, beautiful church, wonderful to just wander around.
