Postcard from Germany – Bamberg, a world heritage site

The old town hall in Bamberg is no doubt its most well-known building. It was built in the 14th century and rebuilt by the people of Bamberg after it was destroyed by fire in 1440. The historical centre of Bamberg was declared a world heritage site in 1993 because of its beautifully preserved mediaeval centre.
L’ancienne mairie de Bamberg est sans doute sa construction la plus connue. Elle fut construite au 14ème siècle et reconstruite par les citoyens de Bamberg après une incendie en 1440. Le centre historique a été inscrit sur la liste du patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO en 1993 pour son caractère de modèle médiéval.
