Bamberg – Worthy Hills to Climb

14 September 2021

I suppose I could say all rail lines lead to Bamberg because my train is transiting southeast to reach the city of Bamberg, some 45 miles north of Nuremberg. The train travels via Bayreuth and I go where the conductor goes. The countryside is green, bikers abound, fields are plowed and raked. I see a smattering of half-timbered houses, barns, corn, bundled hay and chickens. Occasional white sandstone cliffs dot the landscape among dense Bavarian forests with high distant hills. Quiet streams weave around it all. Quite idyllic, except for the steeply pitched roofs which hint of winters with lots of snow.
