Bamberger Kunst- und Antiquitätenwochen
23. Juli – 23. August 2019
The Bamberg Art and Antiques Fair runs simultaneously with the famous Bayreuth Wagner Opera Festival.
Shops and galleries are located in listed baroque buildings (4000 square metres of exhibition

In addition there are ancillary events organized during the fair: exclusive tours of the Bamberg Cathedral; specialized lectures; concerts in Weissenstein Palace, Pommersfelden; and fascinating talks by the antique dealers.
