It seems that the city of Bamberg decided to put scaffolding over most of its top attractions at the same time. The St. Michael's is completely wrapped in scaffolds, and closed, 2 of the 3 towers of the cathedral, the exterior of the residence, even...More

I drove here from Wurzburg on a Sunday & found parking near impossible. After walking a considerable distance I was able to plow thru the crowd & buses. Best thing, other than viewing the Riemenschneiders, was an organ concert. Remarkable organ

A must see, the ceiling is amazing and overall the structure is something to see. What history! Wear good shoes or take a bus or taxi as this church sits high up on a hill. The views of Bamberg are wonderful from up there!

The outside of the church was covered with masssive scaffolding hiding almost the whole structure. I will have come back when the work is finished

The best view in Bamberg. It's a bit less crowded than in the old town, and allows this amazing view over the city.

A sight that we had to see ofcourse, and the climb to this church on the hill is very nice, but the church itself in March 2018 is completely under renovation - so from the outside it is a bit disappointing! The panoramic walk however...More

I think the church isnt open for public. The mass is only for the imtern or monks/nuns. IMHO
