We took a walking tour of the city and went by this old cathedral. This cathedral is situated on a hill and cannot be missed due to the four spires topped with oxidized copper. They were having a wedding at the time, so we did...More

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

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.

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.
