Bamberg - Germany

This is 1 of the cards i've received today. I'll show the other one when the respective RR is complete. This is a card from Bamberg, a german world heritage site and it was sent by Gabriela "Zimtschnecke".

"Bamberg is a town in Bavaria, Germany. It is located in Upper Franconia on the river Regnitz, close to its confluence with the river Main. Bamberg is one of the few cities in Germany that was not destroyed by World War II bombings.
The Old Town of Bamberg is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage, primarily because of its authentic medieval appearance. The city established a documentation centre in 2005 to support World Heritage activities.
Bamberg is known for Rauchbier (or smoked beer in English). The most famous is Schlenkerla's Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier from the Heller brewery; it can be enjoyed at the Schlenkerla tavern on the Dominikaner Strasse in the Old Town. Bamberg was in 2005 home to nine traditional breweries and one modern brewpub - an unusually high number for a city of 70,000." - in: wikipedia
