As I mentioned on Friday, I was having big blog issues which is why I couldn’t write but hopefully I’m done with that now.
So today I’m having my last travel post before getting back into the groove of DIYing. Like my son mentioned in his post (click HERE if you missed it), we went to Bamberg. I have been there many many times. Growing up we had school trips to Bamberg and every time we had foreign visitors we took them for a trip to Bamberg. Our son has been there twice already too but our daughter only as a baby, so I felt like it was time to go again.
Bamberg is a beautiful old German city and unlike my other favorite city of Würzburg, it was not destroyed during WWII which is one of the reasons that it is so special. Another reason was mentioned by my son as well is that a big portion of the town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Old town hall
My kids love the inside of all of the churches. Especially the cellars and dark corners.
The old palace (Alte Hofhaltung)
We had to tour the “Residenz” again of course and it’s remarkable every time. Like I mentioned above the “Residenz” in Würzburg was bombed badly during the war and had to be rebuilt but this one was not, it’s original.
The inside is impressive and the tour was interesting.
My little interested tourists:
My new wide-angle lens (THIS is the one I bought, affiliate link) really came in handy for the room photography and all the large buildings.
My kids were especially fascinated by the below portable travel potty, go figure.
The Rose Garden
We always have lunch at the restaurant where you see the red umbrella. It’s right below the cathedral and “Residenz”.
View of Michaelsberg Abbey
which was closed unfortunately
This particular area below reminded my son of Amsterdam and he informed us that he wants to have a house in Bamberg. The little pinkish red one. Oh and he wants a house boat in Amsterdam, one on the “Fraueninsel” on lake Chiemsee (HERE is our post about it) and one in Avalon NJ. All I got to say is: good job dreaming big buddy and best of luck because I’d love to visit you there.
It was a wonderful day in Bamberg spent with my dad and I love the fact that I’m able to document it here.
