EFL Seminar Bamberg
On March 28 & 29 2019, our German member Joseph Stiftung from Bamberg will host a housing event of the European Federation for Living. The theme and content of the event will be published later.
Bamberg is a beautiful city and is well known as UNESCO World Heritage city. Bamberg is located in southern Germany in the north of Bavaria. It is a good example of a central European town with a basically early medieval plan and many surviving ecclesiastical and secular buildings of the medieval period. When Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, became King of Germany in 1007 he made Bamberg the seat of a bishopric, intended to become a ‘second Rome’. Of particular interest is the way in which the present town illustrates the link between agriculture (market gardens and vineyards) and the urban distribution centre.
