4 June – sightseeing in Bamberg

It was good timing for a non-riding day, as it rained the whole morning. We relaxed in the hotel until around 11am, when we ventured out to do some sight seeing.

Bamburg is a beautiful city set alongside the Regnitz river and evidently over seven hills (I’m not sure we climbed them all!) – there is a lot to see here.

Look how happy he looks next to her!

We were interested in the “Pulse of Europe” demonstration in one of the pedestrian shopping streets. They are a citizens initiative against Trump and Brexit and advocating for European unity.

We ended up at the wine festival again – eating some Bratwurst and drinking beer – and enjoying the live music.
