The church itself was amazing, with lovely murals and beautiful architecture. The view of the city is awesome. We visited during the fest, which had plenty of breweries to choose from. Highly recommended

It's a very nice place to visit. Not the church itself, even though it is nice inside, but the surroundings. There is a great view from the mountain at the city, a nice restaurant, and a small sort of a park next to the church.

The church is on the hill, which is very serene and calm. The area is covered with trees and its very silent away from the town. The architecture inside is beautiful! There are two ways to reach the church - one using the road and...More

Such a beautiful Church. They also have outdoor seating where they conduct services. The church is also located by walking, biking and/or running trails. Definitely a place that the kids and pets would love; breathtaking view of Amberg from the top of the Church stairs.

This is a must do if you're in the Amberg city. It offers much history as the church was built during the Black Plague to offer refuge to the citizens of the city during this dark time in history.

This church is a pearl from the baroque time. You cannot miss the best view and if possible the beer party that happens in June.

Should visit when you are in the medieval town of Amberg. Afterwards enjoy the scenery with a good Bavarian beer at the adjacent restaurant

I normally prefer Romanesque and Gothic churches to Baroque churches as the latter are too decorative. But I was impressed in Amberg. Interior of some Baroque churches are in white colour. It appealed to me with elegance. Wallfahrskirche is one of them. What makes it...More
