    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.Read more

    A cold bleak day in Bamberg rain but about 10° maximun temperature made for a chilly day.

    Did a 2 hour walking tour of the town which ended at the Bamberg Cathedral and Palace. Great views of the township from here.

    Wandered back down the hill and looked around the market stalls and stopped for hot chocolate and of course the obligatory german sausage...

    Corona überall

    September 30, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    In Bayern wird Corona deutlich ernster genommen als zB in der Schweiz. Deutlich mehr Maskenträger, deutliche Hinweise überall und überhaupt mehr Selbstverständnis dabei.
    Einschränkungen gibt es auch - Restaurants haben weniger lang geöffnet und weniger Plätze, kaum spontane Stehdrinks, wenige bis keine Führungen und Besichtigungen.Read more

    Après nos, désormais habituelles, deux heures de trajet, nous voici installés à Bamberg. La place pour les cc est située au bord du canal Main-Donau, lequel nous longeons à pied sur 2km pour rejoindre le centre-ville de cette cité classée UNESCO. Nous avons déjà arpenté les ruelles de ce joyau il y a qq années, mais c’est de nouveau un plaisir d'admirer ces nombreux palais et églises. En premier nous allons à la recherche du troquet qui nous avait nourri la dernière fois: Schlenkerla. Son “Biergarten" dans la cour de l'ancien couvent adjacent convient à merveille pour un dîner et une bière de la maison (fumée, typique pour Bamberg). La Altes Rathaus, la cathédrale, la Neue Residenz et sa roseraie et la Alte Hofhaltung, tous des lieux occupés à l'époque par les princes-évêques, sont impressionnants. Bamberg est construit comme Rome sur plusieurs collines; nous en avons visité qu'une, mais il faut laisser qqch pour la prochaine fois.Read more

    A day out in Bamberg

    January 15, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    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.

    Finally have some time to let you know we still love seeing your photos and blog. Glad to Kellie has the making of an angel on Facebook. Brodie needs to have shorter showers. It may not have been such a flood! Glad he is enjoying the snow. The couple of photos of rail stations reminded me of those depressing movies over the years of war time Germany and the transporting of prisoners. You will be getting good use out of your thermals. It's been on the radio news here of the "cold snap" Europe is having at present.

    We had the car "show & shine" on the foreshore yesterday. We did the sausage sizzle for the Muscle Car run again, plus Mick Hart did up a stage and music and we did demo's in Rockabilly dancing. Busy day but we made money and had really good feed back about the dancing. Theres a bit happening with it at Tunarama as well. I'm having to be very careful with my shoulder as it "froze up" on me last week. Could not use it. Plenty of drugs got it moving again a bit. Booked in for a scan this week and hopefully some cortisone.

    Sandra is being keep very busy with Malcolm's four. I have been going down to swimming lessons some days with her as you need eyes in the back of your head to watch them all. She had a really bad night last night. Her back has gone on her. She is off to the Doctors this afternoon. Malcolm and Dannyelle due back late Wednesday. I will offer to take the kids to the beach tomorrow so she can have a rest.

    May 15, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    We left this morning for Bamburg, an important city in medieval Bavaria. Dmitri our guide led us on a walking tour of an ancient town that was as lovely as any of the towns we have visited over the last week. I feel as though I'm drinking from a fire hose. The cathedral was impressive but not as beautiful as the one in Wurzburg. I was impressed with the courtyard around the original palace of Hendricus II, which dates from the tenth century. The filming of a recent film version of The Three Musketeers was filmed at the site. We passed a hotel owned by the Messerschmidt family. This is the house in which the famous aircraft designer for the Third Reich was born. His father was an innkeeper here, and the house is still a hotel run by the Messerschmidt family. At the end of the tour we walked back to the Green Plaza, where green grocers originally sold their wares, got an ice cream cone, and photographed the Jesuit church. We got some free time at the end of the tour, and we spent it in a park. There was an evangelical youth group singing in German very loud rock songs about Jesus. It is hard to see that anyone would find such evangelism attractive. I walked to the nearby Jesuit church and took photos. Glenda waited for me on an interesting set of concrete pillars sitting beside a splashing pool in the public park. Near the cathedral, which was dark and forbidding, a bride was making preparations for her wedding. I snapped a shot, and her groom looked displeased. However, later when we were at the brewery, we met some of the wedding party's family, and they were very pleasant people indeed!Read more

    July 1 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Auf dem Weg zum Königssee legten wir einen Stopp mit Übernachtung in Bamberg ein.
    Dort vertraten wir uns erstmal, nach einer knapp 5 stündigen Fahrt, die Beine.
    Wir besichtigten das alte Rathaus, die wunderschöne Altstadt, den Dom, sowie den Domplatz, das Kloster St. Michael, den Rosengarten der neuen Residenz Bamberg und die Kirche "Obere Pfarre.

    Zwischendurch stärken wir uns mit Schnitzel an Biersoße und Käsespätzle. Und später kauften wir uns noch eine Tüte "geschnittene Hasen". Das ist ein aufwendig geformtes Schmalzgebäck 😁

    Das war ein sehr schöner und äußerst kilometer reicher Tag, an dessen Ende wir todmüde ins Bett fielen 😅
