    Bamberg

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    A cold bleak day in Bamberg today...no 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...

    Bamberg

    October 16 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 4 °C

    Gestern sind wir erst spät in Bamberg angekommen, so hat die Zeit nur noch für ein gemütliches Abendessen gereicht, bevor ich erschöpft ins Bett fiel. Die Anreise war aufgrund vieler Baustellen und damit verbundenen Staus recht mühsam und dauerte von Salzburg knapp 5 Stunden 😳.

    Heute waren wir aber gut ausgeschlafen und nach einem ausgiebigen Frühstück im Hotel Altenburgblick gings in die Altstadt Bambergs, die UNESCO Weltkulturerbe ist. Um einen ersten Eindruck der Stadt zu erhalten, machten wir eine Hop-on, Hop-off Tour, bei der wir einen guten Überblick der Sehenswürdigkeizen Bambergs erhielten und auch viel über die Stadt erfuhren.

    Nach der Stadtrundfahrt besichtigten wir den schönen Bamberger Dom, das Alte Rathaus, das Porzellanmuseum, schlenderten durch die engen Gässchen der Innenstadt, bestaunen die Fachwerkhäuser, von denen es zahlreiche in Bamberg gibt, sogen den Flair von "Little Venedig" auf und statteten der Altenburg einen Besuch ab,von der man auch tolle Ausblicke auf Bamberg hat.

    Am Abebd gings in ein typisch fränkisches Restaurant (das Weinfass), in dem wir fränkische Spezialitäten schlemmten (Nürnberger Rossbratwürste und Schäufele (gebackene Schweineschultern, die sogenannten Schäufele (wegen des schaufelförmigen Schulterblatts) mit der knusprigen, rautenförmig eingeschnittenen Schwarte). Sehr lecker!

    Ein toller Tag in einer sehenswerten Stadt!

    Destination Bamberg

    October 4, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    We'd got used to the pattern of sightseeing in the morning and then having free time in the afternoon. This time we had a leisurely morning on board while we continued on to our destination of Bamberg.

    We were warned that, unlike all the other places that we had visited, Bamberg's port area is totally unattractive. As we saw when we arrived just after lunch, that was certainly the case. Fortunately we had buses to pick us up and take us to the centre of town.

    Bamberg is certainly a very attractive town and we began by walking alongside the river from where we could admire all the old houses along the water's edge on the opposite bank. With good reason the area is known as Little Venice. We then walked quickly through the old town and up the hill to the cathedral. It and the surrounding buildings are quite spectacular, though our guide unfortunately was in a bit of a rush which limited the opportunity for photographs. Opportunities were further limited by the large amount of road and foot traffic in the area and by the fact that many of the buildings were undergoing repairs and restoration work. Nevertheless, what we did see was quite impressive.

    Our guide then took us back down the hill to the old town, leaving us to our own devices for a couple of hours. That was fine, except for the fact that round about then it started to rain. This was unfortunate because up until then the weather had at least been dry, though overcast and cold.

    Bamberg contains many shops and restaurants, and would have provided many photo opportunities also if the weather had been kinder. We were tempted to try the smoked beer, a local specialty, but as we had been eating and drinking so much on board the ship we decided to give it a miss. At the appointed time we were happy enough to get back on the bus and return to the comfort of our ship. We were certainly pleased to have visited Bamberg, though a little disappointed that the weather had prevented us from getting a lot more out of the visit.

    Thanks Marijke. Pleased you're enjoying it. I'm having fun writing it, and it's a good way of keeping friends and family up to date with what we are doing. After we get home I'll do some editing of the photos. We'll then get it printed as a book for us to keep as a memory and souvenir of the holiday.

    Another place we enjoyed - just for a day - and stumbled across a choir practicing in the cathedral - free listening for an hour - not sure if it was "the" Bamberg Choir but great. Became intrigued with the smoked beer and pork fat with salt !! Bruce C

    Bamberg

    October 12, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Am Nachmittag sind wir dann in Bamberg eingetroffen. Hier ist vorallem der Domberg auf dem sich unter anderem der Bamberger Dom befindet und das Rathhaus bekannt. Der Dom gehört zu den Kaiserdomen Deutschlands, nebenan sind mit der neuen Residenz und der alten Hofhaltung noch weitere Sehenswürdigkeiten. Das alte Rathaus ist durch seine spezielle Bauart in vielen Reiseführern vertreten. Gebaut wurde es um das 15. Jahrhundert. Auch in der restlichen Altstadt lässt es sich schön verweilen. Hier haben wir das einheimische Rauchbier probiert. Dies scheckt, wie der Name schon sagt, nach Rauch. Könnte mir vorstellen das dieses Bier nicht jedermanns/fraus Sache ist.Read more

    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

    Bamberg

    August 2, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    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 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.

    Hallo, für eure Rückfahrt noch ein paar Tipps. Wenn ihr die zeit habt unbedingt meine Geburtsstadt Nürnberg besuchen. Eine rustikales Lokal befindet sich direkt bei der Frauenkirche am Hauptmarkt https://www.bratwurst-roeslein.de/de/ Oder ihr verlasst kurz die Autobahn bei Schwabach West http://www.gasthaus-gartenlaube.de/ und zu guter Letzt noch ein Abstecher bei Ilshofen Wolpertshausen, da kam der Krustenbraten zu Heikos Buffet her ( 500 mtr. zur Autobahn, Restaurant) https://www.besh.de/ Liebe Grüße, Kurt
