Travel Tips for Bamberg

The Cathedral

by zrim

Distinctive with its four massive spires. The outside of the church is a romaneque type of architecture, but the inside is pure gothic with an impressive nave.

If you are unfortunate enough to be with a tour group, you will learn a lot about a sculpture of an unknown horseman in the church. Some say its St. Stephen, some say its Konrad III, I say break away from the group and explore on your own!

Warmth while you dine.....

by Maryimelda

The weather took a turn for the worse whilst I was in Bamberg and it was really very bleak and cold on one day in particular. Here in Australia during the cold weather, Sidewalk cafes have gas heaters which are turned on to keep the diners warm. In Bamberg (and I guess in other parts of Germany as well) they provide woollen blankets for the cafe and restaurant patrons who want to sit outside. Nice touch, I thought.

On the site of the synagogue.........

by leics

As with other towns in Germany I have visited, synagogues were demolished in the early Middle Ages and Christian churches built on the same spot (or very near).

The Christuskirche (I don't think it is open to the public) was built in 1470 on the site (at that time) of the synagogue. It lies at the end of the street still named 'Judenstrasse', presumably in what was the Jewish quarter of Bamberg in the early Middle Ages.

a rose by any other name

by richiecdisc about Wilde Rose Bräu-Keller

This was a place that we just happened across when were visiting the nearby Spezialkeller. It was a great shady beer garden with lots of play areas for kids and a cheap no frills self service food/beer canteen. Lots of locals seemed to be enjoying themselves on this warm evening and taking advantage of the Bavarian tradition of bringing their own food. There appeared to be lots of cheap Fanconian delicacies but having just eaten at Spezial, we opted for just trying their beer. It was a typically tasty vollbier popular throughout Franconia and not in the least bit infected with the city trademark smoked flavor.

Carmelite Monastery

by Elena77

The Carmelites originally founded a monastery at the old town of Bamberg in 13th century. But in 1586 this building passed to the Bishop who needed it for his newly established seminary. As compensation the Carmelites received the empty 12th century monastery of St. Theodor at „Unterer Kaulberg“ which had housed a Cisterican nunnery until 1554. The Carmelites owned and used the buildings and the appendant church until 1803 when the monastery was dissolved. But already in 1902 the convent was reacquired by the Carmelites who reside at the site down to the present day.
Between 1692 and 1707 the medieval church was remodelled by master builder Johann Leonhard Dientzenhofer and thereby obtained a Baroque appearance. Unfortunately most of the church inventory was sold at the above mentioned secularization of the monastery in 1803. The Carmelites have only been able to repossess parts of the original fixtures like, for example, the early 18th century altar and the pulpit.
The monastery’s most remarkable feature undoubtedly is the cloister with its beautiful 14th century Romanesque arches and columns. The variety of the pillars’ capital decoration alone is defintely worth a visit. The meaning of many of these sculptures has not been unriddled, though. Have a look at this impressive works of masonry and maybe contribute to the mystery’s solution! ; )
The monastery can be visited daily between 09:00 - 11:30 am and 02:30 and 05:30 pm. No entrance fee.
