Just off Marketplatz the university church seems both active and ornate. It was impressive with the sun filling the structure. Definitely worth a stop while passing by.

St. Martin Church was located downtown near to the market square. The external facade of this church was impressive while the internal decorations were beautiful. I never thought that there would be such an impressive church in the middle of the town.

Located in the centre of the town just off the market square. We only viewed the church externally as part of our walking tour. Beautiful front facade so well worth a visit for this alone.

This church is in the shopping district and easy to see if you are strolling along the marketplace. It is very ornate and very beautiful as many of the Bavarian cathedrals are. Worth stopping in to see for yourself as you visit Bamberg.

I don't think so, as my tour was in German by the priest who runs the church, but if you come here, they may have something for those who don't understand German.
