Winter holidays in Amberg-Sulzbacher have a special appeal. Numerous Christmas markets, snowy woods, and frozen, wild, romantic streams will put you in a holiday mood. Active vacationers find their pleasures in snow and frost as well: Ski lifts, groomed cross country ski trails, tobogganing, and ice skating rinks await the winter guest. Or is a romantic coach ride through the Bavarian winter wonderland more your style?

The Annaberg

The Annaberg is an enchanting place in winter. There are various views over the snow-covered valleys and the mountain church has an almost mystical effect on a cold winter night.

Heimhof castle

Heimhof castle towers above the village of the same name near Ursensollen. A winter walk is worthwhile to spot the most beautiful view of it.

Lauterach valley

The Lauterachtal is located between Schmidmühlen and Kastl and offers many dreamlike sceneries in winter.


A view over the snow-covered Kastl is always worthwhile.

The Lauterach rock

This fabulous view is from the Lauterachfelsen ("Lauterach rock"), not far from the village of Kastl.

The river Vils

The wintry Vils in Hahnbach resembles a winter fairy tale.

The Vilsmeadows

The Vilsauen ("Vilsmeadows") are recommended at any time of the year, but especially in a quiet wintry hour.

The culture castle

The Kultur-Schloss ("culture castle") in Theuern is our answer to the fairytale castle in Füssen!

Cross-country skiing center

Our winter wonderland! As soon as it has snowed a bit, you can be sure that a trip to this wintry landscape is worthwhile. In addition, the trails are snowed, so cross-country fun is guaranteed.
