My mom served in the little town of Bamberg for nearly 6 months, and it was by her favourite of all the places she served. Hearing all the stories from her time there for so many years, I had pretty high expectations. Honestly, no amount of her daydreaming could have ever done it justice. Before arriving, I already loved it for her sake; but now, it is one of my favourite places I've ever been. It is charming in every way, and I could've happily spent our entire trip in this one place alone.
I will say that it made a brilliant first impression, as we arrived on the day of its annual one-day-only International Antique Fair. And you know how antiques make me weak in the knees. ;)
The most famous doorknob in Bavaria, and one that
I've heard about for more than 20 years. #iwantone

|Bamberg is called 'Little Venice' because of its many lovely canals|
|For the size of the town, there are several churches and cathedrals. |
We ran out of time to visit this one, but we enjoyed the view of it every night.
