The parish church “to our fair lady,” was the single completely gothic church in Bamberg, first mentioned around 1140. Today’s church was built in the 14th and beginning of the 15th century, financed from the citizens of Bamberg. The 68 meter high tower was at first unfinished and was used from1478-1922 as a watch tower. The “bride’s portal” is worth seeing, on the street side of the church (2nd ½ of the 14th century, with the sculptures “the wise and foolish virgins”), named so because it was common practice to marry outside of the church, then enter through the portal and then, hold mass.
The Carmelite monastery St. Theodor on the Kaulberg is one of the oldest and largest monasteries worldwide. Today it’s the home for around 17 Padres and brothers. The consecrated church is the centerpiece of the imposing facility dedicated to the spiritual life of St. Mary and St. Theodore. The Carmelite order is since 1273 in Bamberg. The most beautiful sight is the cloister (14th century) the most valuable partof thefacility.
