Bamberg area with group-2 days

We are taking a bike/barge trip from B. What should we not miss other than the usual churches and museums? Are there any day tours of the outskirts? Wine tastings? Direct service to Rothenburg?

In Bamberg? The real beer capital of Germany?

There are however wine growing areas not far. E.g. along the river Main and Tauber (Würzburg and others).

> Direct service to Rothenburg?

Not that I'm aware of. Bamberg and Rothenburg are both inside the VGN local public transport association. Albeit at the opposite ends of the VGN. You can go there by train, but not without at least 2 changes of trains.

Starting this weekend, until October, Bamberg has a major flower show. Judging by the TV coverage so far, it should be very impressive. Don't knowe how it will affect hotel spaceavailability.

The garden show is Landesgartenshau. Amazing. It's a HUGE park with beer garden, etc. The MS Franken is the new boat for the show from city center to Landesgartenshau. I suggest Spezial Keller even if you don't like beer. The view is amazing.

Wurzburg is nice for a day, but there's enough to do in Bamberg for two days.

Do they have the Gartenschau every year? We are actually planning ahead for 2013, as the bike/barge trips are already booked for 2012. They book up 14+ months ahead. Thanks

There is one in Bavaria every second year but always in a different city/town, hence nothing in 2013, and it's "now or never" in Bamberg. Other federal states have these garden shows, too - depends where you intend to go.
