Note: Bamberg is a city in Oberbayern, Bavaria, located on the canalized Regnitz River just above its confluence with the Main. Historically, it was the ancestral seat of the Babenberg family from 10th century. It was a medieval trade center; and the first book in German was published here in 1459. It passed to Bavaria in 1802. The city has much historic architecture, including two bishop's palaces, a former Benedictine abbey, the St. Michael's Church that was consecrated in 1015, and the Imperial Cathedral, built in 1004. Modern economic activities include the production of electrical equipment, shoes, pianos, and porcelain, along with brewing and market gardening. The 2004 estimated population was 70,100.
