Flat boat journeys

Flat boat journeys on the Vils

Enjoy a flat boat journey on the Vils, the earlier lifeline of Amberg. Our staff member Mr. Röder will gladly advise you (Contact: +49 9621/10-239).

The journey on a Vils barge (as in earlier times) will lead you through the former state garden exhibition area, which today serves as a local recreation area for all citizens of Amberg and guests. With the adventure playground and the pirate’s playground there is even something for small guests.
