Bamberg - a tale of two cities.June 2, 2017 in Germany
We continued to sail this morning as we would not reach Bamberg till lunchtime. Unless our cruise director is pulling our legs, there is a German tradition called Fruhschoppen. This means that on a Sunday they eat sausage and drink beer as a pre lunch snack. Although it's only Friday, we did it this morning. We had pretzel, sausage and venison ham, all washed down with an ale. All this a couple of hours before lunch.
After lunch we set off for a walking tour of the old, medieval town within the bigger, newer town. By the river is an area called Little Venice. These houses were originally all owned by fishermen. Today three fishermen still earn a living here. We walked with a guide for an hour or so and then everyone went their own way exploring the town and its shops. As is our want, we found a cafe / beergarden and had drink. This is another university town which means there are people on bicycles everywhere, and they go very fast and therefore they seem to think they have right of way.
