At Bamberg's historic core, the Altes Rathaus, is tucked snugly on a small island in the Regnitz. To the west of the river is the so-called Bishops' Town; to the east, Burghers' Town. The citizens of Bamberg built this rickety, extravagantly decorated building on an artificial island when the Bishop of Bamberg refused to give the city the land for a town hall. The excellent collection of porcelain is a sampling of 18th-century styles, from almost sober Meissens with bucolic
Watteau scenes to simple but rare Haguenau pieces from Alsace and faience from Strasbourg.
