“A must see in Bamberg”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Hard to miss, but worth making sure you stroll by, the old city hall is situated in the middle of the river, with a bridge passing through it. There are a few other pedestrian bridges nearby that are worth working your way over to in order to get a nice picture (and possibly avoid the bulk of the crowds).

“One of the most interesting buildings in Germany”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The old city hall was built in the middle of the river to get around the refusal of the prince-bishop's refusal to allow its construction on "his" land. It is amazingly decorated, with an incredible stucco representation of St. George and the dragon, the city coat of arms. It is covered with fresco painting and stucco details as well as a half timbered addition protruding out over the river. It is an amazing and photogenic sight well worth a visit.

We were lucky enough to have dinner here as part of the conference we were attending. The building is beautiful and the porcelain collection really lovely
