Some say this is the best attraction in Bamberg with its architecture and frescoes depicting its history. You could spend an hour just looking at the outside and it’s surroundings without going inside to look at the collections inside.

We visited the bridge on a Sunday evening, when foot traffic was minimal. The architecture is amazing. Highly recommend visiting if you are in the area.

Prince Bishop declined local request for a town hall so they built in middle of the river - ultimately getting approval for the building of a bridge to gain access and an extension.

This city museum includes a very impressive porcelain collection that comes with a good historical overview of how this craft developed in Germany. Pieces are treasures and some, like the monkey chorale, are also quite humorous. Nice place to spend an hour or so. Outside...More

You have to see it from different places, bridges, near a far away. Is much more beautiful outside than inside.
