The town of Bamberg, on the river Regnitz, is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, primarily due to its authentic medieval appearance. Its cathedral, which has the tombs of Emperor Henry II and Pope Clement II, is a late Romanesque building with four towers founded in 1004 by Emperor Henry II.
Bamberg is known for its smoked beer Rauchbier and is home to nine different breweries. Every year in August, there is a five-day mass called Sandkerwa, which is celebrated with beer. The German town is twinned with Prague in the Czech Republic, Bedford in England, and Fredonia in New York, United States.
The coat of arms of Bamberg is Saint George, the patron of the Cathedral chapter, holding a lance and shield. In 1973, the town celebrated the 1,000th anniversary of its founding. Bamberg itself extends over seven hills, each crowned with a church. This has led to the town being nicknamed the ‘Franconian Rome’. Bamberg’s street names tell a lot about the local history, for example ‘Fischstrasse’ (Fish Street) is where the fishermen used to live, as it is close to the river, ‘Residenzstraße’ (Residence Road) was one of the most popular streets to live in, and many more.
The 19th century writer E.T.A. Hoffman lived in the town, and the theatre in the centre is named after him. The town remained untouched throughout history, even during the second world war, unlike many other German towns.
Most international visitors will arrive by plane, with the nearest airport half an hour away by car. Bamberg offers a park-and-ride system, and traffic is not allowed in many streets in the town centre. In the pedestrian precinct there is a statue of Nepture, ‘Bambergers’ call this statue Gabelmann because of the three-pronged fork he is holding (Gabel).
Green Market near Maximilliansplatz square sells meats, drinks and crafts, and is very popular with people wanting to purchase a piece of the local produce. There are some houses set on the river, known as ‘Little Venice’, and many visitors walk through this area of the town to capture some beautiful images. Because of the river, transport by boat has always been important, and the Rhine-Main-Danube canal starts near Bamberg, which makes transport between the North Sea and the Black Sea easy.
Fränkische Rauchbierhaxe is a hearty pork dish, famous to the area, that consists of slowly cooked pork in a root vegetable stock, a Bamberg dark beer which is used for gravy, and served with fried potatoes and salad.
Brotzeit is a popular sandwich snack, eaten in between meals, commonly found in local bistros and restaurants. The bread base comes from slices of Frankenlaib, a rye and wheat bread with a crunchy crust, filled with sliced raw beef smoked over plum tree wood, with butter and pickles, and topped with camembert cheese and put together with white wine, paprika and onions. These dishes are the most popular within the region and are available in most restaurants or eateries in Bamberg. During the summer, the average highs are 25 °, with the lows in Winter being -2 °, not dissimilar to the south of England.
