    Walking around

    by ophiro Written Mar 8, 2014

    The main touristic part is very small so the best option is to park your car and walk around the area.
    The main area is called Kleine Venedig or Little Venice and is very nice and beautiful.
    Just pay attention to use comfortable shoes because the old part of the city has some old pavements,

    Shuttle to Altenberg Castle

    Bus waiting for tourists to board

    There is s shuttle that takes you to and from the caste sitting on top of the hill. In retrospect we may have been better off taking it rather than driving the car since finding the streets to get there and back is a challenge. Price for the shuttle (blue & yellow) is 5 Euro, and it comes and picksup/drops off every 1/2 hour, and/or it waits for 15 minutes for visitors to see and leave right afterword, and this time is enough since there is nothing to go inside except for climbing the tower.

    Location of park & ride out off Strada 70

    There are two park & ride areas in order to arrive at the center of old town on a bus, and save the agony of finding a parking spot, or paying an exorbitant amount-like at Information center the costs is around 10 Euro for the day. There are only about 1100 parking spaces in the center.
    The two park and ride are south of the town about 2 miles and north off A70 and Hallstadt Strasse. They do not operate on Sundays, and last bus is 6PM. Cost to park is about 3 Euro for the day and the bus is 1 Euro. A Bamberg card if purchased give free bus rides as part of the deal

    Free Parking

    by BruceDunning Written Dec 16, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Keep it to the VT visitors so it does not get deluged. We found a place that was only three blocks east of the information center, and it is free street parking for a length of about 5 blocks; maybe 30-40 spaces. This is shared by local residences so it may not always seem easy to find a parking place, but we had no problem when arriving to the old center around 10-11AM daily.

    It is located on Hainstrasse which is the main street after crossing the river over Liutpoldbrucke. Closest intersection is Richard Wagner strasse that crosses the river to the island

    Bamberg is not near any of the major Autobahns. But it is nevertheless well connected to the network: the A70 from Schweinfurt (connecting to the A7 there) to Bayreuth (connecting to the A9) runs along the northern edge of the town. The A73 on the eastern side of town connects Bamberg to Nuremberg (connecting to the A9).

    By Train

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bamberg is very conveniently located for train journeys, either as a day trip from Nuremberg, or as a stop-off en route to Berlin from Munich. Bamberg is served by both regional trains, which can take you to places like nearby Coburg, and also the main ICE link from Munich to Hamburg. This means you can be in Bamberg in half an hour from Nuremberg, in two hours from Munich and in four hours from Berlin. Bamberg is also in Bavaria, along with Nuremberg and Munich, so you can also take advantage of the Bavarian Regional Ticket (Bayern Lander Ticket), which allows you to travel all over Bavaria with up to a total of five people for a whole day for only 22 euros.

    Taxi to the Old Town

    by iluvtrvl Written Oct 10, 2007

    If you are arriving in Bamberg by train, you will want to take a taxi if you are staying in the old part of Bamberg. It is not far by taxi - perhaps a 5 minute ride, with the fare less than $10 E (around $6E I think).

    Taxis

    by seoulgirl Updated Aug 25, 2007

    We found that the taxi service was excellent. We called from our cell phone in various parts of the city and they were there within 5 mins. The drivers were helpful, were happy to speak English, and were very nice. The price from Spezial Keller to Lange Strasse was 5 euro. We only had one night to explore so our time was important to us.

    Train between Nuremberg and Bamberg

    You can reach Bamberg very easily by a one-hour train ride from Nuremberg. The railway station in Bamberg is not too far from the Old Town, so you can just walk there without using any other public transporation.

    Bruni & Emmanuelle taking a break in Bamberg

    Once you get to Bamberg, however that may be (buses in Germany are relatively inexpensive), getting around town on your own two feet is probably the easiest way to get around, especially in the Altstadt (old town).

    The Altstadt is a 15 minute walk from the bus/train station and portions of the Altstadt are pedestian zones.

    I arrived via car my first time through but this time out, I took the train from Prague for 1152 kc ($32). It took about five hours.
    Bamberg is a lovely town to explore on foot but there are some boat trips run on the River Regnitz.
