Just north of Nuremberg in Eastern Germany, the town of Bamberg dates back to the 9th Century and is regarded as one of Germany’s most beautiful towns. A fantastic example of European medieval architecture, and thankfully untouched by the second world war, the old town of Bamberg is so well preserved, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993.
Intricately decorated baroque churches, a Romanesque cathedral dating to the 11th century, buildings richly decorated with tromp l’oeil paintings such as the town hall, narrow medieval streets and buildings, it’s easy to feel like you have stepped way back in time as you wander the streets of Old Bamberg. It’s difficult to run out of beautiful buildings and museums to explore and admire in this stunningly preserved town.
When it’s time for refreshments, Bamberg is full of tasty Bavarian specialities. And it is practically compulsory to try Rauchbier, one of the most famous beers brewed in Germany. Its unique smoky flavour is produced by drying malt over an open flame in a smoke kiln. There are 9 breweries in Bamberg and you can visit Schlenkerla brewery in the heart of Old Bamberg, where they have been brewing smoked beer since the 15th century.
