The district of Bamberg is located in the heart of Franconia. It is part of three nature parks: the contemplative Hassberge in the northwest, the wild-romantic Fränkische Schweiz in the east and the varied Steigerwald in the west. In between there are wild and fertile valleys close to the rivers Main and Regnitz. In the middle of this impressive natural landscape lies the city of Bamberg, whose historical town center is a UNESCO Wold Heritage Site. Numerous cycling and hiking trails invite you to actively discover the region.

The district of Bamberg is the beating heart of “Oberfranken”, the region of leisure. Cultural highlights are completed with the culinary ones: there’s always freshly tapped beer on hand as well as the regionally grown wine, that combines great with the Franconian cuisine - and last but not least, the typical hospitality of the Franconians.
With 64 breweries, the Bamberg district has the highest brewery density per capita in the world. In hundreds of restaurants, 82 beer gardens and 34 beer cellars, visitors can enjoy the traditional good fare. Countless are the types of beer brewed just in this region. One of the outstanding brews is the “36 Kreisla”, which was co-developed by the Kundmüller brewery in 2015.
