Bring your camera and good shoes for walking. This church is in the heart of downtown Bamberg. Lots of cobblestones to get there but so worth it! The church had a major renovation that last few years and is now open to the public again....More

Beautiful church. We enjoyed a mass with incredible music due to the natural acoustics. One can walk out of mass onto Gruners Square and enjoy the food market.

Right in the middle of the main tourist market street, it's a cool quiet place to sit, contemplate and pray.

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.
