It was winter time when I accompanied a friend who had an appointment with an Ophthalmologist in Amberg. It was around 45 minutes drive from where we live. Her eye check-up went good but she already needs some eyeglasses.
Amber is a town in Bavaria, Germany. I already visited this town a lot of times, even passing-by there for a lot of times everytime we go to Vilseck of Grafenwhoer. Amberg is a historical town first mentioned in 1034, at that time under the name Ammenberg. It became an important trading centre in the Middle Ages, exporting mainly iron ore and iron products. In 1269, together with Bamberg, the town became subordinate to the Wittelsbach dynasty that ruled Bavaria.
There are some tourist attractions in Amberg. To name a few are, the Market Square, the New Palace, A well preserved section of the medieval walls and gates, the ‘Little Wedding House’ and more.
