hkskyline's 2009 in BAMBERG, Germany

Bamberg was a pitstop from our drive into Munich across western Germany. It was a charming little town, and too bad we had so little time to explore. Emerging from the car, we crossed a bridge with this big landmark in sight.



The red flowers seem to be a common decoration throughout Germany. Add to that the different-coloured walls, and you get a charming old town.









It was a cool, grey day, but a bit too late for alfresco lunch in the open.





This building has a beautiful cover. It appears so new.







A fairly major street was pedestrianized, with plenty of shops and restaurants. Go back a few months in the mid-summer, and this place should be bursting with people.













Lunch consisted of curry bratwurst. The notion of adding curry didn't seem to jive with German food so well, but after a few more days in the country, I realized this was a popular dish.















I wasn't going to get Chinese food in Germany.









The river plays an important part of this town, and with the colourful buildings, a beautiful setting arose.



I needed blue skies though.

















Beautiful town ... for the full set, please visit http://www.globalphotos.org/bamberg.htm

No longer . Currywurst and even Hamburger were surpassed several years ago by Döner Kebab (turkish) as being the most popular fast-food .
Probably nowadays its some asian food.

Bamberg is a very nice city and its popular here in Germany for its beauty.

Great tour of an unknown town. Looks very nice despite being a bit kitsch.

It's neither unknown (to culturally/architecturally interested/educated people at least) nor kitschy, as all of those buildings are original and belong to UNESCO world heritage. Word.


Great photo thread hk! I just love Bamberg and Franken as a whole.
