City walls & gates
Moat, City Walls & Gates
Amberg, the "most secure princely city"

Amberg was named in the Oldest City Chronicle, "the most solid princely city". City moats, outer and inner city walls with 97 doors and gates made the city impregnable for centuries. Still, the almost 3 km long city fortification with a castle, once built as a fortress, conveys an impression of former civic pride and old princely power.
