While there is a fee for the museum while the church is free it is included in the Bamberg Card. The museum has wonderful holy outfits and artifacts from through the ages. Enjoy!

I was deeply impressed by the huge silk robes embroided so skillfully with golden threads, absolutely amazing. How many women and how many hours did it take to make such a robe? There is also a unique collection of valuable liturgical objects, relics, golden heavy...More
