Today we arrived in Bamberg and after breakfast we had a town tour with a 15 minute bus transfer from the ship into the centre of town. Our guide took us for our walking tour around explaining all as they went.Some of these buildings were built in the thirteenth century and are still in very good condition and still being used to this day. Plenty of food shops, cafes and pubs who brew their own beer, in Bamberg they make a smokey flavoured beer, tastes a bit like bacon, not my personal favourite but very popular with the locals.
As with most of these little towns they have all got churches and castles which have been there since way back when and religion is very important to most people here, so they are very proud of their churches and in the old day the castles were used for defence of the town.
After some free time to walk around, have a coffee and try some of the best apple strudel you have ever tasted, some people of course has to look at the shops and then it was time to walk back to meet our bus for our transfer back to the river ship and yes you guessed it it’s lunch time! While we sit back and enjoy our lunch the river ship starts sailing down the river Main to our next destination Wurzberg. After lunch the staff were running galley tours to show the passengers where and how their food was prepared and most were very surprised how small the area was considering the quality of the food and the excellent service we have all been receiving each and every day. The rest of the afternoon was filled in with afternoon tea and relaxing sitting watching the world glide by. At 6.15 pm it was time to meet Luke the Cruise Director for our port talk about tomorrows program and yet another dinner that was to die for. Dinner usually takes a couple of hours each night and then we retire to the lounge and tonight it’s karaoke night, unfortunately there were no singers amongst us so we were lucky to have our mate Brett onboard to sing and dance to us and even our Tour Director Luke sang a couple of songs, they are both quite talented. Another late night snack before bed tonight.
