Bamberg Sculpture Trail
The exhibitions of the “International House of Artists Villa Concordia” formed the basis for the Bamberg Sculpture Trail. The modern works now turn heads in the Old Town.
More than just the Bamberg Horseman: the bishop’s city on the Domberg covers a wide area. Don’t miss the Residence in the Rose Garden and take a look at the Alte Hofhaltung!

Fascinating World Heritage
The two-hour guided tour offers a great introduction, taking in the main attractions, historic monuments and works of art.
Gärtner- und Häckermuseum
The small Market Gardeners’ and Wine Growers’ Museum uses tools and a historic home to bring to life the period in which the market gardeners and wine growers exported produce from Bamberg around the world. One highlight is the museum’s own market garden.
