A view of some houses lining the river Regnitz in Bamberg.

Bamberg is a town in Upper Franconia, Germany, on the river Regnitz close to its confluence with the river Main. A large part of the town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993, primarily because of its authentic medieval appearance.

The town has a long history, in 1973 it celebrated the 1000th anniversary of its founding. However, it was first mentioned in 902, having grown up around the castle Babenberch which gave its name to the Babenberg family. On their extinction it passed to the Saxon house. The area was Christianized chiefly by the monks of the Benedictine Fulda Abbey, and the land was under the spiritual authority of the Diocese of Würzburg.
