Bamberg is the reflection of the power of church and empire and the most interesting structure of the town is The Old Town Hall which was built on the Regnitz River in 1461. It was quite an absorbing structure with the frescos on the exterior front and establishing a domination limit at the same time.

Two bridges are the connection point between The Old Town Hall and two sides of the town. “Rottmeisterhäuschen”  is the tiny structure at its east and it is only connected with building next to it.
