Bamberg offers many opportunities to celebrate and have fun: markets, fairs and festivals invite visitors to experience true Franconian hospitality.
The historical backdrop of the Old Town forms the perfect setting for its traditional markets - from the honey market and mid-Lent market (Mittfastenmarkt) to the antiques market. In the summer months, visitors can taste and appreciate Franconian wines at the wine festivals, whilst music festivals and street parties bring life to the inner city. The highlight of the year is Bamberg's Sandkirchweih, the beer festival that attracts 250,000 people to Sandstraße every year. With a variety of Christmas markets, Bamberg adds a touch of romance and charm to the Christmas season. So why not come and enjoy the various fairs and markets throughout the year? Or else, you can find out more about areas such as well-being, health, sport and leisure.
