Bad weather at Bamberg? Don’t worry! The city has a good natural history museum with one of the most beautiful ancient presentation rooms (the Vogelsaal) I’ve ever seen. This special room once belonging to the university was finished in 1810 and is still in its original state. It was formerly used to teach biology and hosts are large collection of birds.

The museum itself was created in 1791 to collect items on the biology and geology of the region. Highlights next to the Vogelsaal are collections on minerals, insects and ancient fruits of the region. The museum is located within the rooms of the university on the river island, close to the Maximiliansplatz.
