Klein Venedig information
Lonely Planet review
A row of diminutive, half-timbered cottages once inhabited by fishermen and their families comprises Bamberg’s Klein Venedig (Little Venice), which clasps the Regnitz’ east bank between Markusbrücke and Untere Brücke. The little homes balance on poles set right into the water and are fronted by tiny gardens and terraces.
Klein Venedig is well worth a stroll but looks at least as pretty from a distance, especially in summer when red geraniums spill from flower boxes. Good vantage points include the Untere Brücke near the Altes Rathaus, and Am Leinritt.
