Amazing churches and cathedrals are everywhere in this part of Germany but this one is just good, not incredible. It's still worth seeing for the Nativity altar by German woodcarving superstar Veit Stoß, the Bamberger Reiter statue and the tomb of Emperor Henry II. Photos...More

Hi, We visited this year and I see from the plan that the Sacrament Chapel is marked number 13 and is on the left hand side entering from Adam's Portal just before The Chapel of the Nail. Hope this helps.
