My wife and I make the climb, but were disappointed that we could not get into the Dom. It is under repair and will be for several years apparently. Great views of the city however.

Inpressive building with a good interior but it didn't really wow us. In General we found Bamberg to be very disappointing. No parking, nothing but tourist priced food, etc. Go to Coburg or Bayreuth instead.

A beautiful building to visit that makes you wonder how these builders were able to accomplish such feats of construction back in the times when these buildings were built. Amazing feats of construction and craftsmanship that do not go unnoticed by even the most causal...More

This cathedral is a transition from romanesque to gothic, and completed in 13C. Inside is Tilman Riemenschneider's exquisite tomb of Henry ll and his wife, Kunigunde who weeps at his death bed. It took this wonderful artist 14 years to complete and is very unusual...More

The Dom dominates the city from its lofty spot on top of the hill. A pity there was scaffolding on the towers, but I guess needs must. It'll probably be there for a lot less time than the scaffolding around Big Ben! Lots of intersting...More

Great period site to visit. But you won’t spend a lot of time here. The sign says you can. It visit at 10 or 1130. But really mass starts at just before 1130 and runs until 1230. Best to visit in the afternoon.

It's a impressive building on a high point in the town but surrounded by scaffolding at present. It is free to enter and was not overly busy. The alter is very ornate and eye catching but the rest of the church is fairly plain and...More

Sits impressively as a major landmark above the Town with it’s 4 spires highly visible. At present there is an abundance of scaffolding somewhat spoiling the view/ pictures externally. However, the interior is lovely and free to visit. There was an active service on during...More

The cathedral is a fascinating building, but has clearly been very throughly restored in the nineteenth century. Tilman Riemanschneider's tomb of Henry II and Kunigund is magnificant and the church has a lot of fine late medieval altarpieces. The Ritter is beautiful.

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.
