There are many interesting and impressive features of the Bamberger Dom that makes this a must see while in this lovely city. We have visited twice while in Bamberg and undoubtedly would visit again when there. Beautiful gothic architecture.

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.
