I had to share this with you! Near the Marktplatz, I noticed this little Bear sitting outside a shop. There he was, happily dipping his bubble wand into the bottle, then lifting his arm to blow a bubble -How cute is that?
I know now, that he was advertising the Pustefix Bear," a plastic bear filled with bubble mix.
Amberg's old town is surrounded by a complete ring of town walls with four (formerly five) gates and several towers. Entry and exit of Vils river are also heavily protected, with the wall at the exit forming the famous Stadtbrille. Even the moat on the outside is preserved in large parts. Exactly what tourists want to see...
I did not walk the whole round (it started snowing heavily in the afternoon and I was tired) so I unfortunately missed the prettiest town gate, Nabburger Tor with the two towers. Reason to return.
Fondest memory: If the weather and your legs cooperate, walk the round. In the North around Ziegeltor there is a street inside the old town that follows the wall. The more inpressive views can be enjoyed from the outward side where small parks accompany the walll and moat.
