Day 9: Weimar – Bamberg

by bretzelitos

After another splendid breakfast in Hotel Elephant, we went prior to check-out for a walk through the Ilm Park in Weimar, followed by a path through the city that does not cover all the tourist sites and has an alternative look on the city.

Our train ride today consists out of a short ride to Erfurt, followed by just a 45 minute high speed trajectory to Bamberg – which was completed uneventfully.

We checked in at Hotel Brudermühle in the core city center, just next to the Regnitz river.

Just after arriving, we wanted to take a walk around – however, we saw a tourist bus stopping just merely in front of our hotel. We took it without even thinking further. It took us up to Schloss Altenburg that sits above Bamberg. We had a great view around. Also a theater play for children took place while we have been there – Ronja Räubertochter. Back in town, we descended at Bamberg Dom and explored the city center by foot a bit more. We decided to take an early dinner and got a table for two at the Schlenkerla beer garden.

Pretty tired after being well served with food and beverages, we continued our round and retired to our bed after taking the last in our hotel.
