Photographer's Note

Bamberg is part of UNESCO as world heritage.
This is a romantic city with an impressive intact old center. The largest in Deutschland. This city is a must in Germany with its 1000 years of history.
According to the legend, Bamberg"s bishop did not want to give a single millimetre of land to the citizens.
This is why the citizens of Bamberg ramed piles in the River Regnitz for their Town Hall and created an artifical island at the centre of the Regnitz. The location marks the border between the clerical city on the hills and the merchants" island city and has therefore to be considered as a proud demonstration of civil striving for power. The Town Hall is first mentioned in 1387. In 1461, a new Town Hall began to be built. It was mainly finished in 1467 and today, it is the core of the Town Hall.
