The Old City Hall in Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany

Bamberg is a city in Upper Franconia in Bavaria, Germany. This city was not destroyed during the World War II bombing because there was an Artillery Factory nearby which prevented planes from getting near this city. This city is very famous to American people because there is a U.S. Army Base outside of the citiy. Bamberg is included in the list of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1993.

I have below an image of the Altes Rathaus, known in English as the Old City Hall. It is also known as the island or bridge town hall since it was built on an artificial island in the river and is connected to the banks by two bridges each. Its construction was mentioned in 1386. It was built in the middle of the Regnitz River.
