All through this region, government came from the Prince Bishops (or Archbishops) directly comparable to those we had in Northumbria UK. They were not sparing with their apartments! As with many other palaces and museums, photography is not allowed inside the building, a pity because...More

The New Residence is the seat and home of Bamberg's Prince Bishops. Impressive in many ways unfortunately the rear rose garden was under snow in the winter.

Neue Residenz was located near to Bamberg Cathedral. The roll of medieval structures was very impressive from outlook. Due to time constraint, we just took a few photos from outside and left the place. Will come back again in future.

Visited as part of an included tour on Viking River Cruise. Well renovated, the gilded mirror room worth the visit, beautiful gardens.

Another building that set out to mimic Versailles, but didn't make it. It is nonetheless a very impressive structure and has the added attraction of a beautiful rose garden at the rear, which is quite beautiful.

Our tour of this residence included the story of how the owner wanted to build a three sided palace in the design of Versailles, only to run out of time and /or money. The protruding timbers on the front wall are evidence that construction of...More

Why can you not supply the same amount of information, in other languages, to all visitors, you only cater for German native speakers, I know enough to get by in the language but the dialect Spoken was too difficult, I was told on paying at front desk it's no problem as other language guides are available, these are not guides, one told you dimensions of a room? Why would we want to know bedroom is 90sq m? The guide is informing on many things, she is so rushed through the many rooms she cannot take time for anyone. You take money from tourists to the town but you are not catering for them, if you continue to do this negative reviews will be posted and no visitors will come, is this the way forward? What do you do when people come from Viking river cruises? Or do they not? I look forward to hearing from you
