The Best View | Bamberg, Germany

View on the Bamberg Old Town Hall (Bamberger Rathaus) in Franconia at Night

This picture was taken completely by chance. We were on the way to visit the Franconian city Nuremberg for a couple of days, when we spontaneously decided to take a little detour to the beautiful city of Bamberg. Up until then Daria has never seen the incredible Old Town of Bamberg, which is in its entirety listed as an UNESCO world heritage site since 1993.

The Old Town of the university town Bamberg is the largest preserved historical city centre in the Federal Republic of Germany and is source of many myths and legends. Beside the impressive Bamberg Cathedral, the very famous „little Venice“ and all the small and crooked alleys, which are framed by medieval buildings, one of my favourite buildings is the Old Town Hall. Documentation about the impressive building with its baroque and rococo facades is dating back to 1387. But it is not just an ordinary Town Hall, as you find it in any other city, Bamberg’s Old Town Hall was built in the middle of the river Regnitz. As unique as the building itself, is the legend about its origin, according to which, the bishop of Bamberg was too greedy to provide suitable land for the Town Hall to be built on; however the townspeople knew how to solve this problem and created an artificial island from stakes and timber on which they built this very precious building for us to admire today. Daria wasn’t able to take her eyes of it, so I took the opportunity to capture this beautiful scene.

Get it On Your Wall

Nico Trinkhaus presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
