Bamberg Michaelsberg

The Michaelsberg Cloister is a former Benedictine monastary in Bamberg Germany. It is a phenenomenal church / cloister complex dating to 1015. Besides the fabulous church, there are restaurants, cafes, a hotel, an old-folks home, and the Frankish Beer Museum among other things in this massive enclosed square which sits atop a hill looking down on the old city center of Bamberg, with good views of the Imperial complex and Cathedral / Dom.

It was certainly worth the longish walk and hour and a half or so I spent walking around, inside and out..
