The East German town of Bamberg lies just 63km North of Nuremberg on the river Regnitz, close to its confluence with the Main. In 17 Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, became king and tried to make Bamberg the seat of the Bishopric, intending it to become a 'second Rome'.
Bamberg had a significant architectural influence throughout central Europe from the 11th century onwards, with its medieval and baroque styling evident throughout much of Germany and Hungary. Hiring a car in Bamberg allows you to see all of its stunning architecture, as well as visiting its other attractions.
With so much impressive architecture, no trip to Bamberg would be complete without visiting its Cathedral. Having been rebuilt three times, the current cathedral takes its inspiration from both Romanesque and Gothic styles. A tour around the Cathedral will leave you speechless.
If you''d like to learn more about the city and its heritage you can visit the Historical Museum in the Old Court. Featuring exhibitions such as The Bamberger Idols and '100 Masterpieces' by Lucas Cranach, Pieter Breughel & Otto Modersohn, it will give you a complete look inside what life has been like in the town throughout the ages.
If you fancy a slice of the big city life, Nuremberg is only 63km south of Bamberg on the A73. Hiring a car in Bamberg to get there couldn''t be easier thanks to our handy location on Jaeckstrasse in the town centre.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
