Trip Report Bamberg and Environs - 9 nights

Jump to last reply

Just back one week ago from a lovely trip to this area of Germany!
Thanks to all the Fodors input, we got to visit the less-commonly seen sights of the Vierzehnheiligen Basika above Bad Staffelstein, the Alte Anatomie Museum in Ingolstadt, the Albrecht Duerer house and the medieval dungeon-cells in Nuernberg. We became aware of, and visited, a Pentecost Fair (Pfingstdult) in Amberg (what fun!) and I finally tried (and liked) my first Rauchbier.

We had the best weather (70s and sunny) and our chosen FeWo in Bamberg was a two floor townhouse with loads of space and a very good price.
For our final two nights, we moved to Hotel Cristall in Frankfurt to explore that city as well. Highly recommended for price (45E per night), proximity to Bahnhof and quiet/clean rooms. We "learned our way" around Frankfurt in about 30 hours, seeing the Roemer/Dom/Staedelmueum/Judengasse Museum and more.
Details, and hopefully in time, photos, will follow!
