Bamberg, Bavaria

Bamberg may not have been as powerful a church center as Würzburg, but it had the same overlay of Italianate Baroque influence - and it survived the war mostly intact. Here is an ornate door of a building on Judenstrasse.

The smoky and very ornate interior of Saint Michaels Church on a Sunday.
This area of Bamberg is called Little Venice and is surrounded by rivers. This modern sculpture is at an area dedicated to the memory of those who died in the War.

The local specialty is Rauchbier/Smoked Beer, made with roasted malt. Alan does his research at a bar called 'Schlenkerla,' the home of the Bamberg Rauchbier.
