In the evening we sampled the local specialty, Rauchbier or "smoked beer," which tasted something like liquid ham.
Possibly my favorite small town in Germany, Bamberg was one of the few German cities to be spared from bombing during WWII and thus retains a very medieval feel. Something about the many hills and the way things were built around the river (or indeed over the river, as is the case for the town hall) is very aesthetically appealing. We also toured the Dr. Pfleger pharmaceutical company, which has the wonderful feature of being not-for-profit. Hooray!
