Built at the end of the late Gothic period, the church is one of the most venerated places of worship in this area. Proceed to the Island district for a view of the Old Town Hall with its fascinating history. According to a local legend, the bishop refused to give the citizens of Bamberg the land they needed to build their Town Hall, so the people started throwing stakes and logs in the river Regnitz, creating in this way a small artificial island, on which they built their Town Hall.Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
