Geyerswörth / Regnitz Mills, Bamberg 2001

Geyerswörth Palace was built by the wealthy Geyer family. It is situated on an island upstream from the Rathaus (city hall) in the Regnitz River. On the same island as Geyerswörth and on the opposite band (west band) of the Regnitz, there are several old mills. They are no longer used as mills but are now artisan workshops, galleries and restaurants catering for the tourists who flock to Bamberg every year.

Not only the mills have been converted for other uses - this old wagon is now filled with flowers outside a restaurant which was once a mill. Wagon filled with flowers
