This massive building fills one side of the Domplatz and at present has large amounts of scaffolding up and work ongoing. It was the seat of the Bamberg Prince Bishops until the early 1800’s. It was €7 to enter and I believe this included a...More

This is an impressive place, full of paintings and wonder that you can spend hours walking around while taking it all in. Wear good shoes, you'll be walking for a few hours here. You can take in the Dom church, this Neue Residenz and the...More

As other reviewers have said the interior can't be seen unless on tour and tours are only given in German. I went at 9:15am hoping that I would be the only person on tour, thus increasing my chances of having an English tour, which they...More

Impressive architecture and size! You can only go inside with a guided tour, so we did not do it. Still worth to go.

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Why can you not supply the same amount of information, in other languages, to all visitors, you only cater for German native speakers, I know enough to get by in the language but the dialect Spoken was too difficult, I was told on paying at front desk it's no problem as other language guides are available, these are not guides, one told you dimensions of a room? Why would we want to know bedroom is 90sq m? The guide is informing on many things, she is so rushed through the many rooms she cannot take time for anyone. You take money from tourists to the town but you are not catering for them, if you continue to do this negative reviews will be posted and no visitors will come, is this the way forward? What do you do when people come from Viking river cruises? Or do they not? I look forward to hearing from you
