I have several trips planned for Germany and Bamberg is in one of the routes I have already traced. The 1st reason is because it is a UNESCO site and in addition, its historical center looks pretty beautiful and interesting. In this postcard sent by Andrzej there's an area known as Little Venice.
The former fishermen's district in Bamberg's Island City is endearingly known as Little Venice. This district is characterised by half-timbered buildings that prop each other up and by tiny, pretty gardens.
The half-timbered buildings were mainly built in the Middle Ages. They are squashed together along the riverbank, creating a quaint and picturesque scene, with boats floating in the moorings by the front gardens. The river cruise takes you directly past this unique line of houses. - in: http://en.bamberg.info/poi/little_venice-4650/
