Churches fascinate me. Some are plain, others elaborate. The Bamberger Dam reflects its former elaborate following the reformation. One can imagine what it looked like before changes

Beautiful city in the Bavarian region. The whole town can be seen by walking. Bamberger dome isn't much different from rest of the architectural buildings in Germany but still worth a visit.

Large and imposing, the cathedral sits on a higher part of the old town. The interior is austere but atmospheric.

An impressive exterior which is sadly not matched by the interior. Inside is quite plain, with virtually no stained glass or ornamentation.

Replacing Henry II Cathedral destroyed by fire in 1185, the Dom was built 1237. The combination of round and pointed arches reveals that it spans the Romanesque and Gothic styles. We saw thee tomb of the canonized Imperial couple Henry II and his wife Kunigunde....More

Very nice place to visit. On top of mount there is a large garden with a great view on city where you can have some fun to take pictures. Unfortunately, church was closed due for repair. Nevertheless I recommand it to climb it.

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.
