Bamberg - UNESCO World Heritage Site

One thousand years of history have shaped the Franconian imperial and episcopal town of Bamberg, leaving behind many valuable architectural monuments such as medieval churches and baroque town houses. The magic of the past hangs like a veil over the town.

Magnificent architecture steeped in a thousand years of history
Bamberg's fascinating historical townscape has developed over more than a 1,000 years. At the centre of this world heritage town is the largest preserved old quarter in Europe. Around 2,400 listed buildings and the centuries-old garden quarter make up the town's unique cultural heritage. The fa�ades of its buildings are richly decorated in fascinating detail with spectacular ornamentation.
