The morning will be spent in the delightful town of Bamberg. The old section of town will be our focus and many have said that the inner city is the most beautiful in Germany. Coaches will pick us up after breakfast and take us to the nearby Dom Platz with the grand Imperial Cathedral. After some time at the Cathedral we will head downhill to the beautiful Town Hall and the center of town. Bamberg is also famous for smoked beer and after the walking tour you will have some free time and then we will meet at the crane for a bus pick up to take us to St. Michael's Abbey where the Capella Antiqua will perform a special Medieval Instruments Concert for us.
