Enjoy a fascinating Bamberg trip during a Rhine cruise with The River Cruise Line. The German city of Bamberg has a beautifully intact old town which was bestowed with Unesco world heritage status back in 1993. It’s an area filled with narrow alleyways, cosy corners and beautiful buildings, and it’s a great example of how a town would have appeared in the middle ages. Probably one of the most interesting sides to the city, however, is its association with beer – Bamberg’s brewing industry goes back almost 900 years to the days when monasteries were the first breweries. Our guided tour takes you around the old town so you can see the highlights, whilst also telling us about Bamberg’s beer and the importance it has in daily life.
