Another beautiful cathedral. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Bamberg. It has a triple-nave with two choirs whose apses are flanked by two pairs of towers 266’ high. The interior was very different from anything I’ve seen…very plain and constructed of huge stone blocks. The only papal grave in Germany is behind the choir…Pope Clement II who had... More

The Cathedral is named after two saints, Peter and George. Peter was Jesus's first disciple. George was a brave and pious soldier for Jesus.

A lovely cathedral watching over the little old town, well worth a visit inside. There are some great statues and paintings, including a 'green man'! Do not miss this - but be careful, the 'road' around the cathedral is quite busy and its not clear whether you are standing on road or pavement as they are all cobblestones!

Sited in a commanding position overlooking the city, the cathedral is impressive from the outside and majestic on the inside. A must-see on a visit to Bambewrg.

Too bad there was scaffolding due to construction work but this is really a beautiful cathedral. We went during Advent and sauce the nativity scene on display.

This cathedral has the imperial couple, a horse statute and some beautiful altars. It's definitely worth your time to walk through. It's right across from the Residence so you can do them both in a fairly decent amount of time.
