Vacation 2010 Day 8: Bamberg

bam3018

Bamberg is a wonderful example of a Bavarian medieval town that escaped the bombings of the war, so its no surprise that the whole of the old town is a World Heritage Site.

I was fortunate to be able to be shown around by friends who live in Bamberg.

There were of course lots of churches, cathedrals, etc, but as usual my eye was drawn to details...

I don't think I have seen anything like the murals on the outside of the Old Town Hall.

Built in the middle of the river, the 14th Century Old Town Hall is reached via two bridges. This is probably the most well known view of Bamberg.

Like I mentioned, my eye was drawn more to details...... after 3 days of massive churches and cathedrals.....
