A must see, the ceiling is amazing and overall the structure is something to see. What history! Wear good shoes or take a bus or taxi as this church sits high up on a hill. The views of Bamberg are wonderful from up there!

The best view in Bamberg. It's a bit less crowded than in the old town, and allows this amazing view over the city.

Like others I was only able to glimpse views through the scaffolding. It just reminded me how splendid these old churches can be.

I suspect that if it wasn’t covered in scaffolding and had been open it would have been worth the stiff walk up from the town. Regrettably in early January, all I could access was the terrace - and while the views were interesting, on their...More

During our visit to St. Michael's Church, it was under renovation and could not enter to view the internal part of the church. We took a few photos on the external facade and the building was absolutely nice with some fascinating monuments outside.

Excellent view of Bamberg on a clear day. Take the bus to the top and work your way down. To me it is too steep to climb. Renovations going on so you are limited on what you can see.
