Around The Marienbrücke, Bamberg

Bypassing the Leibniz Institute, I walked to the end of Augustenstraße, where I found an interesting building number 18, which is a cultural monument of Bavaria. This is a four-storey residential building with a residential attic, built in 1904 in the so-called "Home Style" (Heimatstil) with elements of historicism.

Heimatsil appeared in the seventies of the nineteenth century and was based on rural and regional architectural forms.

Then I went to the left bank of the artificial arm of the Regnitz River, which was built as part of the Main-Danube canal to bypass historic bridges and mills.

Weegmannufer, Bamberg

The canal bank is a green walking area of the Weegmannufer (Weegman's riverbank) with children's and sports grounds. Luitpold Weegmann was elected mayor of Bamberg in 1924 and was deposed by the Nazis in 1934. In 1946, he was reinstated and made a major contribution to the post-war reconstruction and development of the city. Weegman worked until 1958, earning the title of Honorary Citizen of Bamberg.

The Marienbrücke Bridge leads from the Leibniz Institute to the other side of the canal. The bridge is unremarkable, it is a utilitarian concrete structure, but it offers beautiful panoramas.

The Kunigundendamm embankment is built up with colorful three-and four-story houses from different eras.

Here, attention is drawn to the house number 36, built in 1906 according to the design of Martin Hartman. This is again Haimtstil, with elements of post-Gothic and German Renaissance. The house is an architectural monument.

Corner house near the bridge with the address Marienplatz 1 was built in 1906 according to the project of Georg Benedikt. This four-story residential building with a shop is a beautiful example of German Art Nouveau, called Jugendstil.

If you look from the bridge towards the city center, you can see the Luitpoldbrücke arch bridge in all its glory.

On the right bank, along the canal, there is also a walking alley named after the first president of post-war Germany, Adenauerufer (Adenauer riverbank).
