Bamberg is a city in the south of Germany. It is located in Franconia in the state of Bavaria. The city has almost 78,000 inhabitants. The river Regnitz flows through Bamberg, divides briefly and then joins again. In doing so, it forms an island, the so-called "Inselstadt", which is part of the city center.
