A fine testament to the ingenuity of the people who live here. These buildings are built on the river and offer a glimpse of the medieval half timber building style of times gone by. Picturesque and intriguing to see.

Had a nice stroll past the house's from the other side of the river. Very impressed with them and not quite sure how some aren't sinking!

The city of Bamberg is delightful. Go there. See it. But Klein Venedig was essentially a lone gondolier. I felt sorry for him really.

Former fishermen’s properties and a picturesque view from the opposite River bank. Small medieval half timbered buildings with balconies and tiny gardens. Known as ‘Little Venice’.

There really is no comparison between Klein Venedig and Venice. However this is a charming part of Bamberg. The houses along the riverside are beautiful old timbered buildings with flowers adding more to their appeal. Not to be missed while visiting Bamberg old town.

I loved these little picturesque houses along the river and couldn't stop taking pictures. According to me it is the most beautiful part of Bamberg. It is possible to take a boat trip or even gondola to see them from another perspective which we didn't...More

This area is very pretty, but making the Venice comparison is utterly ridiculous. Can see this "sight' as an incidental look to the side when visiting the Altes Rathaus. This is a free attraction, and requires no preparation for visiting.

Standing on the lower bridge of the Alt Rauthaus and looking ate Little Venice is a relaxing way to sip a cup of coffee and think about where on the planet you are. This something unique you will not see anywhere else. Enjoy.

It is well worth a stroll along the river opposite these buildings in the morning or late evening. Just sit for half an hour and look at how these building fit together right on the waters edge. Take your camera to get some great shots.

I am not sure about which cruise you are asking about. But in general if it is a short cruise of one or two hours I think not, for longer cruises of a day or so, it might be wise to book ahead. Let me know which cruise you... More
