Things to do around Amberg

Amberg is a town in Bavaria, Germany, in the Upper Palatinate region. With a well-preserved section of the medieval walls and gates still visible, it's fun to walk around the inner city. The defining feature of the town is the Stadtbrille, a bridge which was originally part of the fortifications; stadtbrille literally means 'town spectacles' and the bridge's arches resemble a pair of spectacles when reflected on the river's water. The Market Square contains the Gothic town hall, built in 1358, and the town museum (Stadtmuseum Amberg) includes exhibits on life and industry in Amberg, and artwork. The Luftmuseum is one of the few 'air art' museums in the world. The surrounding area of the Upper Palatinate has lots of hiking options with trails and caves for all levels.
