"St. Michael's Monastery" Bamberg Things to Do Tip by zrim

Bamberg Things to Do: 261 reviews and 676 photos


It requires an uphill walk from the old town, but it is worth the hike. Great views from atop the hill and the church at the old monastery is very interesting. The interior is rococo and therefore quite gaudy.

The most important reason to visit the monastery is for the chance to get some fine rauchbier at its biergarten. Nice ending to a hectic day, sipping the beer, looking out over the city, while sitting under the protective limbs of some great old trees in the garden.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
