World Heritage

More than 2400 listed buildings, winding lanes and an abundance of mediaeval churches make Bamberg a work of art of immense historical value. Because of the impressively well preserved architectural ensemble in the Old Town, Bamberg was awarded the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. Not without reason: the successful mix of imposing architectural styles and baroque town houses lend the town an atmosphere that captivates visitors as soon as they arrive.
