The Largest Events
The Amberg Old Town Festival
In June there is again a state of emergency in the Amberg "egg": cultures from regional to international, many bands that serve pretty much all bandwidths of traditional and modern music, a colorful children's program, clubs, schools, aid projects, culinary delights from hearty to noble, drinks from the most basic to the exotic - when Amberg invites you to the Old Town Festival, the whole city celebrates.
On almost all streets and squares, from Bahnhofstrasse to Malteserplatz, from Rossmarkt to Schrannenplatz and even to the Englischer Garten, the Old Town Festival, officially opened by Mayor Michael Cerny, takes place.
Beginning Saturday afternoon, thousands of Ambergers, but also many guests from the surrounding area, come to the Old Town to experience the varied program of the Old Town Festival.
Amberg Christmas Market
Dare to resist the smells of roasted almonds, gingerbread and grilled sausages. Colorful lights invite you to forget the stress of everyday life and spend a few relaxing hours with family and friends over a cup of delicious mulled wine.
The romantic Christmas market in the heart of Amberg offers culinary delights and an entertaining program. Numerous events on the live stage provide interesting sights and sounds on the cold winter days. Both young and old get their money's worth. Let yourself be pampered by the vendors offers at the lovingly decorated booths and enjoy the most beautiful time of the year at the Amberg Christmas Market on the market square.
The first outdoor event in the spring is the Krüglmarkt, which is organized around Georgi, the name day of St. George. Potters and other craftspeople sell their wares around the Maltese Square. It is difficult to resist the beautiful works of art. Especially since this event is accompanied by the first Sunday open-for-sale and the latest spring collection is available in stores.
Amusement - Tradition - Pleasure
During ten days, the Bavarian way of life, cordiality and exuberant moods prevail on the Dultplatz in Amberg. In the large marquee and in the Weißbierstadl, the specially brewed festival beer is served.
Every two years the Luftnacht (Air Night) takes place in Amberg. Here you can experience air with all your senses! Be inspired by musicians, artists and other aerial players and enjoy the airy ambience in the Old Town of Amberg with its shops and restaurants.
The Bergfest (Mountain Festival) is calling you. What makes this celebration special and charming? It’s rather difficult to describe, you just have to experience it for yourself! Every year around the 2nd of July, thousands of people from near and far make the journey to Mariahilfberg. Many attend the sermon before celebrating at the "Amberg Mountain Festival" with beer and sausages, cheese and Spitzl, or Radi and cabbage. Once the priests turn off the light at ten o'clock, the visitors will slowly descend the mountain and return to the valley.
