Exploring Bamberg's Historic Gardening Heritage

Urban gardening has deep roots in Bamberg. It shows in the city's blooming tradition of cultivating green spaces. This flourishing practice is particularly pronounced in Bamberg's "Gärtnerey", the gardeners' quarter. For centuries, families with green thumbs have resided here, cultivating and selling an array of fruits, vegetables, and local specialties. Bamberg was famous for its prized liquorice, made from liquorice root grown within the city walls.

Located within one of the historic houses, the Gärtner- und Häckermuseum (Gardener and Winegrower Museum) with its charming garden brings to life the rich history of how gardening families and winegrowers lived and worked in the city.
