  • Bike rental or buy used bike

    by Grasanbreu Online Now Jun 5, 2015 at 9:50 PM

    It seems that cycling in the Bamberg area is quite amazing, and I'd love to either rent a bike for a couple of weeks or buy a used one that I can use my entire 6-week stay. Any ideas of what's more convenient and economical?

    I live in Bamberg and have been here for about 6 weeks now. I have gone sight seeing and have experience quite a bit of the German culture. However, I am beginning to miss certain foods and condiments. For example Tapatio hot sauce, El Pato tomato sauces, and various other spices. I am no stranger to the road and if anyone knows where I can find these items please let me know.

    Earlier this year I visited Bamberg and purchased a hat- a woollen cap. I am very pleased with it and should like to purchase another. I have lost the address of the shop and will be grateful if someone can provide me with the information I need: i.e. name of shop, telephone number, e-mail address.

    The shop window had the sign "HOLLAND" in the window and "WEGENER".

    The shop is situated on the left side of a street leading acroos the bridge towards the Cathedral

    When I was a lad I courted the girls: No that's a different song. I was stationed in Bamberg as a lad for eigteen months in the French Prussian wars it seems. Going back to the scene of my dastardly, misspent youth. What should I expect in Bamberg and Bavaria 40 years later? Hotels, restaurants what have you are welcome.
