Had a great time walking around this little town, and we took a short visit to this Church. A little different that some of the others, but worth visiting.

I drove here from Wurzburg on a Sunday & found parking near impossible. After walking a considerable distance I was able to plow thru the crowd & buses. Best thing, other than viewing the Riemenschneiders, was an organ concert. Remarkable organ

I have just returned (23 Aug) from St. Michael’s, and I am almost totally sure it is closed for renovation. It had scaffolding all around it and we couldn’t find a way in. Good luck!

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.

I think the church isnt open for public. The mass is only for the imtern or monks/nuns. IMHO
