Route: Karlovy Vary - Bamberg - Nuremberg - Karlovy Vary
Duration: 9 h
Our first stop in this tour will be at the city Bamberg which is located on the seven hills and where narrow lanes, baroque and romantic facades, mediaeval flair and the magic of the centuries make city very interested for our visit. Bamberg's nicknames - the "Seven Hill City" or "Franconian Rome" - refer to the part of the city situated on the hills. Cathedral Hill was the spiritual and secular centre of power in the diocese of Bamberg from the 11th century until 1802. This is where some of Bamberg's best-known and prominent buidings are located, including the Imperial Cathedral, the baroque New Residence, the Old Court and Michelsberg Monastery. Additional striking features in this district are the former monasteries of St. Stephan and St. Jacob and the Parish "Church of Our Lady" (Upper Parish). Altenburg Castle which towers above the city, the greenery of the hills and the church spires, which can be spotted from afar, are typical landmarks of Bamberg. Also in the city you will see the homes of tradesmen alternated with breweries, bourgeois houses and even palatial edifices. The four-spire cathedral perched on top of one of Bamberg's seven hills is the true heart of the town and the most significant work of art in the region. St. Peter's and St. George's Cathedral was founded by Emperor Heinrich II. who established the bishopric of Bamberg in 1007. Ranking among the most important sights are the papal tomb of Clemens II., the only papal tomb north of the Alps to be recognised by the Vatican, and of course the Bamberg Horseman. Despite lengthy research, the identity of both the statue and its sculptor still remain a mystery.  Next we will visit to the city Nuremberg where you can exploper the picturesque streets and corners of the city, and learn the history hidden between its stunning walls. We will start our route from the main square in the old town, Hauptmarkt where admire the impressive Schöner Brunnen, the fountain composed by figures that represent the world view of the Holy Roman Empire and is decorated by two brass rings, golden and black. It is said that you have to rotate them, one of them brings you good luck in life, and the other one gives you luck in pregnancy, also witness the beauty of the Church of Our Lady, known as Frauenkirche. Next we will continue towards the Kaiserburg Castle, such a jewel of the medieval Holy Roman Empir. Here, we will enjoy the best panoramic views of the old town. In addition, you will learn everything about the renowned Albrecht Dürer and the popular museum that reveals the life of the artist. Then, we will wander along Trödelmarkt, well-known as the “love island” a little and beautiful island in Pegnitz River. Also we will take a stroll along the Way of Human Rights, one of the main entrances from outside the wall. Decorated by numerous monumental columns, this is considered an open-air museum where we will unfold what happened in the 12 Nuremberg Trials that took place during the Second World War between the allied nations that fought to combat the human abuses and crimes. During the tour you will see Hauptmarkt, Schöner Brunnen, Frauenkirche, Kaiserburg, Albrecht Dürer’s House, Way of Human Rights, Tiergartnertor-platz, Schlemmereck and much more! After we return to Karlovy Vary.
