The Bamberg Horseman



This podcast was produced by Judith and Dirk, two students from Bamberg, neither of whom possesses a horse.

The Bamberger Reiter is an Early Gothic equestrian statue in the cathedral in Bamberg. Although the statue itself doesn't seem that impressive to us today, the mystery behind it transcends its physical smallness. This was the main thing which caught our interest and convinced us to produce a podcast about it. So with this podcast, we intend to inform you briefly about the mystery behind the Bamberg horseman.

For more information on the statue, check out this site (in German):

Thanks to our tandem group in Galway, Clemens and Denise, for giving us the idea!
And many thanks to Esther for helping us out with our English!
