Mini-holiday in Bamberg

A beautiful backdrop for a busy visit to Bamberg

Quick trip to Bamberg: spend the day sightseeing in the old town, and spend the evening sampling local cuisine.


Take a trip to Bamberg and find out for yourself just how much flair the town has to offer. Stroll along the river Regnitz and enjoy the waterside charm of Little Venice during the day, then try out the unique flavour of the local smoked beer in the evening. Well known in the town, the cafĂ© Zafran serves up Indian food when you'd like a full meal. If you're looking for some entertainment, go to the puppet theatre, with its charming productions of famous plays. Sound interesting? There's lots more besides! Book your ticket for Bamberg, the ancient town of bishops and emperors. We hope our suggestions help you have a different kind of daytrip.

The Bamberg Puppet Theatre

This is where all the threads come together: at the Bamberg Marionette Theatre. Although there is usually a children's play on the schedule, the majority is for adults.

Welcome to the Café Zafran in Bamberg

The name, “CafĂ© Zafran”, in Bamberg is slightly confusing as neither coffee nor cake is served here. Instead, you can expect to find Indian dishes here.
