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.

Breakfast is served.
After breakfast, between 0845 and 0900, we will depart the Amadeus
II and have a chance to visit Bamberg with its seven hills and a
river flowing through the center of the old part of town. After
the walking tour you will have a little bit of free time and then
it is off to St. Michael's Abbey for the concert by Capella Antiqua.
Lunch will be served upon our return.
The afternoon will be spent relaxing while we sail the Main‑Danube
Canal. During the afternoon we will also start our lecture series
with a talk by David Barnes on the history of Europe and Germany.
