The imperial cathedral of St. Peter and St. George is one of the legacies of Emperor Henry II. It impresses with various sights inside.
As early as 1002, Emperor Henry II had the cathedral built in Bamberg, which was completed in 1012 after an incredibly short construction period of only 10 years. However, this place of worship burned down, as did its successor building. The third building, which has both late Romanesque and early Gothic style elements, has survived to this day. Worth seeing are the high grave of the holy imperial couple Kunigunde and Heinrich II, which was designed by Tilmann Riemenschneider, the mysterious "Bamberg Horseman", the Marian altar by Veit Stoß and the papal grave of Clemens II.
