Full description
Feel the medieval magic of fire, mead, and witches' ointment in a present-day UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go on an interactive tour of Bamberg, the town chosen to become a "second Rome" by German emperor Henry II in the 11th century. 

Check out well-preserved structures dating back to the 11th century from the colorful town hall to the city's ancient Romanesque cathedral. Learn how the town's architecture influenced central European urban form and evolution over the centuries. 

But don't just get the official, zoomed out history of the city. Greet your tour guide and enjoy a glass of delicious medieval mead before coming face to face with how the common people lived, loved, and died when the world was still populated by demons and witches. Take on the role of a noble lady or a simple craftsman for the duration of the tour. Appreciate the authentic props and hands-on approach that will allow you to collect water from wells and ignite the embers in the stove with a fire striker like someone from the Middle Ages.

Wir hatten das große Glück, mit einer Kunsthistorikerin durch die Stadt zu laufen. Es war sehr unterhaltsam, abwechslungsreich und gut dosiert.
