Bamberg to Schweinfurt

Monday 18 July
Bamberg was this morning's destination. The old section of the city has many medieval buildings. There was very little damage to the town during the Second World War so the buildings are mainly original.
Buildings visited included the cathedral and its precinct
including The Beautiful Gate
and The New Residence built 1697 - 1703.

The afternoon was a cruise down the river to Schweinfurt.
In the afternoon there was a talk about the European Community. Theme for dinner was medieval and the entertainers, Minniglich, performed medieval music.
