Suggested excursions

The countryside around Amberg is characterised by the white peaks of the Jura mountain range. The effects of wind and rain over thousands of years have created caves and steep rock faces which make for interesting and exciting places to visit on daytrips in the area around Amberg. The Upper Palatinate Forest on the border with the Czech Republic has some great places for interesting day trips. Those with an interest in culture should take a trip along the Golden Road - one of the most important trading routes of the Middle Ages.
Upper Palatinate Forest
The Upper Palatinate nature reserve is made up of unspoilt countryside that is perfect for cycling, hiking and riding. There are many hills and lookout towers with magnificent views across a real "sea of trees". Together with the Bavarian Forest and the Bohemian Forest it makes up the "green roof of Europe". The nature reserve is also a paradise for anglers as its many ponds, streams and rivers are home to species such as catfish and metre-long pike.
The Golden Road
The origins of the Golden Road date back to the time of Emperor Karl IV. In the 14th century he gained extensive lands in the Upper Palatinate region through marriage, purchase, exchange, pledge and inheritance. These lands were subsequently incorporated into the lands of the Bohemian Crown as an independent territory. The Golden Road was created as a land bridge, connecting crown lands between Prague and Nuremberg. This road, which was such an important trading route between east and west in the Middle Ages, offers today's visitors a fascinating mix of the past and the present, idyllic landscapes, culture and exquisite food.
Nuremberg is a large, modern city with strong links to the past in its wealth of medieval and early modern art and culture. Kaiserburg Castle, the city's most famous landmark, was the seat of several Imperial Diets as well as an occasional residence of German kings and emperors right up to the 16th century. Come and spend a few hours strolling through the picturesque old town where ancient traditions are brought back to life. With a packed calendar of events, concerts, exhibitions and festivals, Nuremberg is always a fascinating place to visit.
