A nice cathedral to spend an hour touring. There is the tomb of an old German King and also the tomb of a Pope. Nice cathedral, nothing compared to Straßbourg or Notre Dame, but still very nice.

Along with the cathedrals Trier and Speyer, this one is one of the classics of the genre, Both inside and out, the cathedral drips of history and classical art. It is not to be missed.

In scale, overall artistic quality, specific items - the tombs, triptychs, carvings, choir stalls, Bishop's throne, and the famous Bamberg Rider statue, and state of repair, this is a must-see cathedral.

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.
