    Bamberg

    August 2, 2017 in Germany

    Bamberg is north of Nuremburg and well worth the visit. We walked around the Old Town Bamberg admiring its arched bridges, cathedral, muraled Town Hall (Altes Rathaus) and a very pretty fishing village - each house looked as if they were holding the next house up - they were so packed together!
    We drove up to Bamberg Castle - walked up to the top of yet another tower - totally worth it for the view. Time to move on to Regensberg.Read more

    Bamberg

    August 2, 2017 in Germany

    Drove north from Nuremberg to Bamberg. Up there with one of my favourite places we've visited, it's the oldest preserved medi-evil town in Europe. The river is very fast flowing with old houses along one bank where the fisherman lived. Of course there are also a couple of churches and a palace on the hill.

    A day out in Bamberg

    January 15, 2017 in Germany

    Dave and I did our morning stroll across the park to the bakery. On the way home snow was falling on us and it was so peaceful and serene walking through the park. I just want to hang onto this memory. Serenity was soon to be broken, we arrived back to the apartment with our bedroom floor flooded. The shower is in our bedroom and is an open shower. The water decided not to drain away and Brodie didn't notice it until he had finished then had to get dressed before he could get Kellie to help him. We have a huge rug in our room so that was nicely soaking up the water. My bag was on the floor full of souvenirs, but they had shifted that to safety. Half an hour later every towel soaked, the rug dripping over the clothes horse we had breakfast, yes that memory will be lasting. We had to wash all the towels so we couldn't leave until they were finished. A very late start to the day. We headed off to Bamberg which is less than an hour away by train. It took about 15 minute walk to reach the old part of the town. It was well and truly lunch time by the time we got to the centre. We found a quaint place which we were seated out in a covered courtyard and had heaters. Another nice lunch and a relaxing hour. Kellie was stoked as the waiter made her a vodka fanta. Bamberg is famous for its breweries, so Dave sampled the local beer. After lunch we followed a tourist trail around the old town. All day the snow showers would come and go. The good thing about the snow is it doesn't stop you from walking you just keep going and enjoy it. The kids had snowball fights whenever they could. We caught the train back and we had to go to the train station's grocery store as ours is closed on Sundays. It's a small shop and is chokkers with people. We got back to our apartment a bit after 6pm. Eggs for tea as we had a decent lunch. We are all a bit weary today, so an early night.

    Bamberg

    August 15, 2016 in Germany

    Will had visited Bamberg when he was 14 on a school exchange. The town is another colourful German town with an impressive cathedral. Its highlight was the old half timbered town hall, built in the middle of a bridge over the river. Its walls displayed large scale murals that added to its individuality.

    As it was our 7th wedding anniversary we treated ourselves to an evening meal at a local restaurant and brewery that lived up to its excellent reputation. Arriving at 6:30pm we found the place packed and buzzing. There didn't seem to be any eating area open inside the building and the outside courtyard was made up of 6 seater tables and benches. Having read about the custom of sharing tables and seeing people inquiring if there was space at others' tables, Will found one with two people who were happy for us to share.

    We went for 'The Classic' menu, ordering pork knuckle with potato dumpling and sauerkraut for Will and pork schnitzel for Vicky. It was simple food done really well and the waitress kept us topped up with the brewery's own beer to wash it down. Will couldn't manage desert but Vicky had the only choice on the menu other than icecream; apple ring donuts coated in cinnamon and sugar- delicious!

    An evening stroll over the bridge and short cycle along the riverside cycle path topped off the evening beautifully.

    Bamberg

    December 26, 2017 in Germany

    There wasn’t a lot to see at Bemberg. It is a very old town but doesn’t have a castle or any other major attraction. We wandered around the town and there were some interesting buildings which were very old, some to 800 years old. One thing I did try here is their famous smoky beer.

    Cherries with Zues

    July 12 in Germany

    Little Venice in Bamburg, elite Germany, churches that took so long to build, the back has one style, the front another, rose gardens built seven stories high for Napoleons wife (who never visited), storybook river scenes through the old town, Smokey beer which we will have to imagine how it tastes as marks belly is tag teaming mine in queezy city, and a sunny spot in the modern square eating cherries so fresh I could taste sun.

    Bamburg

    June 22, 2016 in Germany

    Bamburg was governed by Bishops and Imperialism for almost a thousand years, and often referred to as the Rome of Franconia.

    Bamberg stands on seven hills surrounded by beautiful countryside. Dominated by its imperial cathedral, the town is a unique and superbly maintained masterpiece of urban design, uniting medieval and baroque architecture.

    Bamberg's well-preserved old town comprises three historical districts – the episcopal town, the island town and the market gardener's town. All three are part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and provide a fascinating example of how central European towns were built up around the basic layouts established in the early Middle Ages.

    Bamberg was given special status in 1007, when Heinrich II was building the town into a centre of episcopal and sovereign power, making it the centre of the newly founded diocese and turning it into a second Rome. Five churches in the form of a Latin cross mark the layout of the town. The historical townscape features numerous monuments from the 11th to the 18th century and some 1,200 architectural monuments. With its four towers, the imperial cathedral of St. Peter and St. George is the most prominent building.

    Other highlights include the the rose garden with a view of the old town, the tanners' cottages by the old canal, the mill district and the fisherman's village known as Little Venice.

    Walking around Bamburg

    June 22, 2016 in Germany

    The day started with a walking tour of Bamburg. Bamburg is larger than the towns we have visited over the last few days.

    It had a number of interesting buildings including a castle which is now a Retirement Village. What an interesting concept Michael and Melissa. You could put us in this home and we would be living in Bamburg Castle or Camperdown Castle. Hmmm what a decision.
