This instagrammable town in Bavaria will win you over with its fairytale-like buildings, cobblestone streets, and nature just steps away.

I grew up reading German storybooks and always pictured these fairytale lands with cobblestone streets, intricate-detailed buildings, and rivers crossing the town going into the forest. This is exactly what Bamberg looks like.

#1 Bamberg is a fairytale city

You’ll be able to casually stroll though the streets, enjoying a gelato on the bridge, and maybe going to take a swim at the bathhouse where locals hangout during summer.

It’s only about 30 minutes away from Bamberg and gets its name from its overwhelming natural beauty. Rent a car and go for a drive through this beautiful area.

Bamberg has a surprisingly large amount of ice-cream and gelato shops considering it’s such a small city. Here you can find ice cream for every liking, from spaghetti ice cream to matcha sorbet!

If you enjoy cycling in warm weather then you must visit Bamberg in the Spring or Summer.
