Bamberg − 3 days from £229


The self styled "World Capital of Beer" is the centre of an area with the greatest concentration of breweries anywhere in the world. Bamberg's medieval heart belongs to a thriving, modern, university town full of life, colour and character. Originally built on seven hills, and with the only burial place of a Pope north of the Alps in it's cathedral.

Often described as a miracle city as it was one of the few to suffer little damage from bombing in the Second World War, it's architecture is a living museum of 1000 years of German history. Today there are still nine breweries in the town creating Kellerbier and Rauchbier as well as more conventional beers.
