We found this church after leaving the Cathedral. It's fairly plain looking from the outside but revealed a stunningly beautiful interior. Also nice place to have a few minutes rest and contemplation during a busy sightseeing day in Bamberg.

There's nothing bad about this Church, it's just unremarkable. True, there's a Tintoretto, but, to be fair, he churned out pieces like this one by the dozen. Move on-nothing to see here!

Walked in here while exploring Bamberg on foot, and the architecture inside is simply stunning. One of the most beautiful and ornate buildings we saw while in Europe.

In 1325 the wealthy merchants of Bamberg built the Church of Our Lady, known simply as the Obere Pfarre (Upper Parish) of the Kaulberg (in distinction from the Old St Martin Lower Parrish church once in the Maximilianplatz). The church is architecturally noteworthy for its...More

Lovely baroque church on one of the Bamberg hills, just out of the centre. The alter was really stunning and it was so peaceful away from the old town's tourist hoards.
