A lovely cathedral watching over the little old town, well worth a visit inside. There are some great statues and paintings, including a 'green man'! Do not miss this - but be careful, the 'road' around the cathedral is quite busy and its not clear...More

Too bad there was scaffolding due to construction work but this is really a beautiful cathedral. We went during Advent and sauce the nativity scene on display.

This cathedral has the imperial couple, a horse statute and some beautiful altars. It's definitely worth your time to walk through. It's right across from the Residence so you can do them both in a fairly decent amount of time.

This is a fascinating Dom, containing the tomb of Heinrick and his wife, beautifully presented. Also the tomb of Pope Clement. Some lovely stained glass and statues. Fabulous views over the old town.

Mina, I notice you mention the Blessed Sacrament Chapel relating to your visit to Bamberg Cathedral. Could you please tell me exactly where it is located? (I am constructing a website on the cathedral, have good photos, but can't locate the chapel!!) Thanks, Paul

Hi, We visited this year and I see from the plan that the Sacrament Chapel is marked number 13 and is on the left hand side entering from Adam's Portal just before The Chapel of the Nail. Hope this helps.
