The easiest, most healthy and most fun way to get to know Bamberg!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
On our Free Walking Tour you experience Bamberg's old town with enthusiastic locals. In 2 hours, we offer you an entertaining mix of history, legends, fun facts and useful recommendations for the rest of your stay. We cover the main sights such as Little Venice, the brewery's street, St. Michael church and the old town hall .
Currently we provide tours in English on Saturday and German on Sunday. All tours start 11 am at the "Face" sculpture, close to the "Altes Rathaus" (old town hall) where we welcome you with our green and white umbrellas.
The tour is suitable for all ages and can also be visited with a wheelchair, pram or dog. Everyone is welcome! Please make sure you dress accordingly to Germany's ever changing weather, bring water and sun protection.
In the end of the tour, you can honor the guide's efforts with a tip, that may depend on how much you liked the experience.This way we guarantee that every guide will always give his or her best. We're not financed by any external institution and do depend on your tips. As a guideline you can refer to the value of comparable commercial tours, that cost 8-15€ per person. But also with 1€ you help us continue with this project.
RESERVE OR NOT?
The cool thing about our Free Walking Tour is, that you can just come to the meeting point and join! Generally, there's no reservation required. However, sometimes, it can become quite crowded.
To ensure safety, health and quality on our tours, we limit the group size to 25 people and prioritize guests with reservations. Therefore we recommend to make a booking if you're visiting with a big group (+8 people).
WHAT WE'LL SEE ON OUR TOURS
Bamberg is a true jewel, nestled gently along the river Regnitz in Franconia, north Bavaria. We show you hidden alleys and famous monuments of the UNESCO-World heritage old-town as well as the local cuisine and beer culture. The city is easy to reach on trips from Munich, Passau, Nuremberg, Würzburg or Regensburg, but is worth a journey on its own!
