Under renovation, so you cannot see much, at the moment. Impressive complex, and one of the landmarks in the old city of Bamberg.

St. Michael's Monastery was also under intensive renovation, both inside and outside, for quite a long time. It was expected that the project would complete in 7 years' time. There was not much to see around. Just suggest others to skip this spot.

Unfortunately the interior was under renovation when I visited so I wasn't able to go inside. Nonetheless...I enjoyed viewing the exterior of the building.

It is very close from Dom Platz and there is probably the best panorama of Bamberg. You can also eat something in a restaurant with nice sunset (may be a little overpriced).

We went on an organised river cruise tour and found the history here just enthralling. The buildings are impressive, the gardens cool and sculptures interesting. We were bused in and walked back down to the town after our visit. A lovely town, just a wee...More
