Old Town Hall | Bamberg, Germany

Bamberg Old Town Hall with deep blue sky

The Old Town Hall is for me the most remarkable building in Bamberg. It was built in the 15th century in the middle of the Regnitz River and for long time marked the border between the clerical, bishop-led Bamberg and the civil town center.

Not affected by the war it was solely the river that damaged the town hall several times. By now they have the water level under control so that the Old Town Hall of Bamberg can continue to sit enthroned for a long time in the water of the Regnitz.
