Travel and Explore Bamberg in Bavaria, Germany

Bamberg is a city in Upper Franconia in the state of Bavaria, Germany. It is located on the river Regnitz close to its confluence with the river Main. Bamberg is an old and historical town and belongs to the list of UNESCO World Heritage due to its original appearance and structure. Its name has known its origin from the House of Babenberg.

There is also an American Base in the area. That is also the reason why there are thousands of foreigners living here and most of them are Americans and their dependents.

Some sights of the city include the Old Town Hall, Klein Venedig or the Little Venice, St. Martin Church, St. Peters and George Cathedral, Geyerswörth Castle, Maximiliansplatz, Green Market and some other more.

Below is an image of the Old Town Hall taken during our visit last Oct. 9, 2010.

Old Town Hall (1386), built in the middle of the Regnitz River, accessible by two bridges. I has a wonderful architecture and the frescos are particularly impressive due to its plasticity.
