St. Jakob's church
In the year 1070 the Abbey Church St. Jakob was founded. The Abbey Church is the oldest catholic and the only almost completely romantic church in Bamberg. A flat-roofed building with basilica pillars.
The Aufseesianum, founded 1741 from Bernhard v. Aufsess, was built from J. H. Dietzenhofer as a dormitory for the Diocese from Bamberg and Würzburg.
To date it is still used as a boarding school. In 1972 it was the shooting location for the film “the flying classroom,” based on the novel from Erich Kästner.
