Monastery gardens of St. Michael’s
The gardens of St. Michael’s, a former Benedictine monastery, invite visitors to linger and amble about or enjoy a cup of coffee in the café.
A lovely walk is the “Benedictine path” traversing the former baroque gardens. One of the projects of Bamberg’s 2012 Bavarian gardening show is the new vineyard within the old monastery gardens. Up until the 18th century, Bamberg was a wine-growing area as well as a beer producing town, and this vineyard now re-establishes this tradition.
Please note, that St. Michael's church is closed for visitors due to extensive restoration works.
