Coat of arms Amberg

I often visited Amberg when I lived in Nuremberg. The over a thousand year old town always surprised me with something new that I discovered; even very old things can be new. I learned for example that in past time this town was given as a gift to a bishop by Kaiser Konrad II. I wondered what the bishop did to receive such a gift.
I also loved to drive or even to walk through old downtown.
Naturally, I did this with occasional breaks which were accompanied by ice cream, a coffee with cake or a beer and something to eat.
I always tried local food and you should do the same when you are away.

Amberg - many thanks to "Harald909" and Wikipedia

Martinskirche - many thanks to "Harald909" and Wikipedia
The so called "Stadtbrille" (town spectacles) on the river Vils - many thanks to "Msuess" and Wikipedia

The old city hall or "Rathaus" - many thanks to "Harald909" and Wikipedia

Isn't it nice to keep old city halls? This building was already mentioned in 1348.
Elizabeth is seriously addicted to old buildings - especially when they are used for boutiques, perfumeries etc. She screws up every strict time schedule by trying to visit all of them.
For that reason I only do a rough planning which makes sure that we are always at the airport at the right time when we were on our short shopping trips.
When we lived in Germany we could keep our excursions less stressful and had more time for sightseeing.
I will never learn how anybody can see all of Europe in seven days. I want to enjoy vacations and whenever we feel like going swimming or to do something else we discovered, we go for it.
If you share our philosophy, please visit the "Kurfürsten-Erlebnisbad" after an exhausting day of touring the old town and hopefully one of the interesting museums. Please pick up tourist information in Amberg that you don't miss anything!

I thinks it's relaxing and fun to go on a "Plätten ride"

We had several opportunities to have such a boat ride - not only in Amberg. I do not want to create any excuses why we never booked one. We made the same mistakes in Canada when we were traveling along the St. Lawrence River.
Going through the "Stadtbrille "town spectacles". I think the name was given because this part of the old town fortification looks likes eye glasses with the mirror effect in the water.
If you like what you see, please consider to have a boat ride on the Vils.

Strange looking boats called "Plätten" will take you on an unforgettable trip.
I am confident that you won't get seasick and you'll be able to take some good pictures if you do not forget your camera like I did sometimes.

Many thanks for some of the pictures to the Tourist Board of Bavaria and involved communities
