Im Herzen der Gärtnerstadt, einem Stadtviertel von Bamberg, in dem die schmalen, teils bis heute bewirtschafteten Hausgärten das Stadtbild prägen, befindet sich das 2012 neu gestaltete Gärtner- und Häckermuseum.
The Gardeners' and Vintners' Museum, which was re-designed in 2012, is located in the heart of the gardening town, a district of Bamberg in which the narrow gardens, some of which are cultivated to this day, shape the townscape.
A wide variety of types of fruit and vegetables have been grown in Bamberg since the Middle Ages and thrive particularly well here due to the mild climate. The Europe-wide trade in seeds and the liquorice root which was used for the production of remedies had great economic significance, in particular. Until the climate deteriorated in the 19th century, wine was even cultivated by the Bamberg vintners on the slopes of the Domberg.
The museum is housed in a characteristic farmer's townhouse from 1767. Here, you can immerse yourself in the historic working and living environment of the Bamberg gardeners and vintners and discover the whole variety of types of herbs, fruit and vegetables in the carefully maintained garden. These, of course, include the onions to which the people of Bamberg owe their nickname "Zwiebeltreter".For opening times and admission prices please visit the original website.
