This is an impressive and well-preserved building best seen from the outside. The inside has been updated and restored and contains a collection of porcelain unrelated to the building's original uses. Unless you have an interest in porcelain, I suggest the inside not be on...More

This is a highlight of a visit to Bamberg. It was crowded (especially near the food stalls) but still worth it.

Very beautiful building with bridges in the middle of the river. One of the buildings that is worth seeing in Bamberg on a nice day. Just walk around it.

Bamberg's historic town hall is one of the most picturesque buildings in Bavaria -- the stunning location in the river, the half-timbered architecture, the beautiful murals.... What a wonderful historic monument.

Outstanding building the outside is so wonderful to view and of course to see the cherub’s leg, adds to overall impression of the building - obviously the artist was displaying his humour!

This mediaeval town has unesco world heritage designation. It is outstanding. We did a guided walking tour that was very informative and pointed out things we may have missed. The side of the building is almost as interesting as the classical front view on the...More
