Art & culture
Customs and traditions such as the Kirwa, the pilgrimage festivals or the many forms of industrial history provide a great foundation for the diverse culture in Amberg-Sulzbacher. Changing rulers and borders and a strategically important wealth of mineral resources led to the construction of numerous castles and palaces. Monasteries and churches show the varied religious history of the region. In addition, there are numerous museums and various festivals that are either nationally significant, or show a lot of local flavor.
