There are two reasons why you should visit the church; firstly the views of Bamberg from the church are amazing, and secondly, the church has some very special crypts, including one of a pope. If you are in Bamberg, this is a must visit.

The cathedral itself is dark and in need of internal cleaning of the stone, which may be underway.Beyond that, it is splendid and ornate, with much gilding. Summer 2017 there was serious scaffolding over the main altar.
