you're in luck. Due to a work project involving the building of housing accomodation for one of the largest and most modern US military bases in Europe, I will off and on be going to the region around Bamberg. I was last there only last Tuesday.
Please visit the German Forum from time to time. I plan to write a number of blogs on places that I will be visiting over the next few months in Germany. Bamberg will definitely be very high up on my list. Bamberg is one of the most interesting and beautiful towns in Germany, and in its entirety is considered a UNESCO world heritage site.
For starters, Bamberg is located in the German state of Bavaria, and can be reached in 2:20 hrs by train from Frankfurt airport. Not all Bamberger's like to be called Bavarians though. In Bavaria, there are two main regions: Bavaria and a subregion of Franken. The relationship between these two is like the Scots and the English. They are both governed out of Munich, but other than that there is little similarity in language dialect, food, culture or otherwise. Bamberg is located an hour north by train from Nürnberg, and an hour east by train from Wuerzburg.
Unfortunately, very little can be said about Breitengüßbach. It is located 10.6 km north of Bamberg. A pretty little village with two large man-made lakes to the west of it. Currently these lakes are being renaturalised and connected to a river and canal network to permit eco tourism in that area of Franken. Should you ever want to visit that area, touristic focus should be on places like Bamberg, Würzburg and Nürnberg. If I find out anything about the base, I will post a reply on this post.
If you have any further specific questions, please raise them, and I will see whether I can answer them, and as said, in the near future, I will be blogging about the opportunities for Bamberg and Nürnberg.
