Altes Rathaus, Bamberg

(The Old Guildhall.) Bamberg was a brief stop during our visit to Franconia and northern Bavaria in October and, whilst lovely, would benefit greatly from being less floodlit. I hope to return and spend a little more time there, as the small city contains a lot of old architecture and interesting sights.
