Bamberg, City of Nativity Scenes

Part of a nativity scene in a church of Bamberg, Germany

More than thirty nativity scenes can be visited in the city of Bamberg. These are spread over the entire town and invite you to an exciting exploration of cribs as well as the places of Bamberg. The range extends from historical to modern models. [German]

Where is the kitty cat?

A special attraction for the whole family are hidden small animals in the nativity scenes. So you have to look for the figurine of a small black cat at the crib inside the Church of Our Lady (Obere Pfarre). That can be quite challenging standing in front of a several meter-long crib with dozens of figures.

Here is the kitty cat!
