A place of faith and testimony to medieval architecture.
The cathedral is Bamberg’s most famous sight. At the same time, the four-towered imperial cathedral on the Domberg is the building that decisively shapes the old town of Bamberg. It was Henry II who decided in 1004 to build a church on the foundations of the former Babenburg. When Bamberg became a diocese in 1007, this project was given a much higher priority. Just how important Bamberg Cathedral already was at this time was demonstrated in 1012 on the occasion of its consecration.
