Germany: History of Bamberg

Today I got two cards from Germany.

One of them is the Chronicle card of Bamberg. Bamberg was first mentioned in 902 and in 1007 it became the capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg. It had its heydays during the High Middle Ages and in the Late Baroque period. When the Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg was secularised in 1803, Bamberg became a part of Bavaria. Today it is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Bamberg. Since 1993 is the Town of Bamberg on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
