Bill and I have spent a little more than a week in Bamberg, described by Lonely Planet as a disarmingly beautiful masterpiece with an almost complete absence of modern eyesores. The entire Altstadt, or town center is a Unesco World Heritage Site. The town is bisected by two rivers, and built on seven hills!
We have walked most of the streets, down the park paths along the river, stopped at most of the 10 breweries, and visited the different historic sites. We have made three-day trips, by train to three different cities, all within an hour’s ride, Nuremberg, Wurzberg and Colberg, to visit the different Christmas Markets and see the sights, all beautiful cities deserving on more time. The train system is amazingly efficient, and an economical way to travel in Germany.
We have loved our time in Bamberg and would come back again, tomorrow we are off to Frankfurt.
