Accommodation in or around Bamberg

|That happened to me once -- it seemed every hotel was booked Thur and Fri, but Sat and on was fine. Never did find out what was going on. A lot of the smaller hotels are not connected to online services so the only way to find out for sure is to contact them. I would do so via fax (I used an internet fax service called fax1.com that worked great). They almost always sent me a fax (or email) back, even if they were full. I also know people that have stayed in Forchheim -- about 15 minutes away by train (and home to 4 breweries). A friend in Bamberg has an apartment he rents out short term. He normally likes a minimum of a week but he may go shorter for a beer lover. It is a small apt, but it does have two rooms so four could fit in a pinch if beds could be found. Info is available on the www.biermarkt.com site -- goto the links page and you will see it. Worth an email if nothing else pans out. It is just about around the corner from Schlenkerla so the location is good!
