The old town of Amberg is packed with history, So is the area around the Stadtbrille... We were there in winter, but I will return in spring/summer. This area must be even better when it is warm

Its a historical structure, which is beautiful with the water flowing underneath. With reflections, it looks like to be a goggle! After sunset, its very calm and peaceful to be here. Just beside the city center and Amberg city center church.

Yes, there is a cute optical illusion when the water is smooth, but this is hardly one of the more interesting sites in this very attractive city. It is a nice walk, so do see it, but please control your enthusiasm.
