Yes, there is a cute optical illusion when the water is smooth, but this is hardly one of the more interesting sites in this very attractive city. It is a nice walk, so do see it, but please control your enthusiasm.

A reflective and meditative place funded largely by local merchants, it is worth stopping by. It's a quiet alternative to the bustle outside,

FROM CZECH TO Germany AND BACK
Frantiskovy Lazne to Amberg
By Zoran Slavic

We travel through the Czech Republic on a rainy night. We're going to Germany to Amberg. Less to to sightsee, more to buy parts for "Opell." As the evening darkens, the rain stays behind. Remaining we still have to stop at Frantiskovy Lazne to assure the accuracy of Goethe's assessment of the local park as'' earthly paradise''. Of course, without the slightest doubt in the court of the great German poet. Front windshield Springs villages and towns such as the peeps from twilight landscape. The modified radio program, more guttural German language, we feel we are approaching boundaries.
Meanwhile, we arrive at the Frantiskovy Lazne, undulating road through the impressive forest, which twilight, and night, and soon, they give a little bit of ancient mystery. It was too late to visit the Goethe's garden. Instead we went to the Švejk's restaurant on Klostreman street.
In addition, in the restaurant the decor was as the Jozef Lada illustrations Hašek's novel. The kitchen, actually offered food, was a classical Czech. We eat dumplings in a special sauce. Evening, nevertheless, almost normal. The general mood, however, improves the happy conversations with some tourists next to the bar. We have heard, in fact, a story that might have fictional, how is exactly Frantiskovy Lazne spa
actually it's from Kundera prose where a spa doctor, to treat specifically female patients
of infertility. Indeed, the story seemed charming, but Under was in France and could not check the veracity of what we heard in Švejk restaurant. We did not get either to inquire with the local people, whether children born after spa treatments really look like the local doctor.
At midnight, we decided to delay the trip to Germany. After a lot of local beer was not very advisable to drive a car. Before going to sleep, we went to the sauna that refreshes the body to fatigue, but also large quantities of beer. So relaxed we went to the hotel to sleep. The hotel was very close and was called Spa & Kur Hotel Harvey. It was all new, modern and spacious. The friendly staffs and our team in the midnight hours in all came out to meet them.
In Amberg, a town of 50,000 inhabitants, on the river Wills, we arrived the next day, in the late afternoon. He seemed like a bustling market town at the end of working
times. Friday is the start of the weekend. For the Germans, it means the beginning of a brief but intense vent. We decided to spend the night in "Hotel Brunner." Our friends have not recommended this hotel; they say it is clean and inexpensive. It turns out, that
first notification was right, while the other was not exactly the most accurate. However, close to the market the staff is friendly. During the dinner, we enjoyed the cabbage and sausages; we have the opportunity to make sure that the weekend in Amberg dynamic. It was noisy, fun and exciting! In the Sign of draft beer. As in the Czech Republic, but bombastic.
On Saturday morning, a friend of my son goes to auto-waste, to change the windshield, as I look around the city. Modern commercial part, the industry, led by ''Siemens”, completely harmoniously leaned on this very old Bavarian city. See the river fort protected, Wills, with public buildings, mostly in the Gothic style, with spicy Renaissance applications. Due to the short time, it would be foolish to talk about the other specifics of this city; they called'' Venice of the Wills''.
Nevertheless, there is a curiosity of Amberg. The joint city bakery, in 1997. have broken the Guinness World Record by making pancakes a mile long! They say it is enough for each resident of the German border town. A pancake is a stuffed potato.
However, before leaving Amberg, on the recommendation of the desk clerk, we separated the two hours to visit the Kurfürstenbad Amberg Water Park. Moreover, we did not regret. In this fun, recreation, healing and very attractive Water Park has everything you imagine. Everything you can imagine that it is in the water and the water, it was used here. There are Waterfalls, artificial waves, water slides, jumping, hydrotherapy, massages...
That evening, we returned to the Czech Republic, in Frantiskovy Lazne

Rathaus Amberg

Reviewed By TartanWanderer - England, United Kingdom

the whole town of Amberg is sleepy, not heavily visited, quaint and worthy of visiting. The Rathaus is a pretty, well preserved building on the side of a nice square where you can pass the time of day having a cold beer or a coffee from one of many cafes. Your Euro will go a long way here - far cheaper than the UK for food, beer and cie creams.

Nestled in a large alleyway, and with several architectural styles on the outside it is hard to imagine that there is such a gorgeous church behind the plain wooden doors. It is spacious and airy and a fine tribute to the workmen of its day.

Piratenspielplatz am LGA Gelande

Reviewed By zenobianblue - Turku, Finland

Our kids (ages 4 and 7) had a blast at this park. We went in the wintertime and everything was open, but there wasn't much water around the pirate ship (this was probably for the best since it was freezing cold). You might want to watch your kids extra close since there are quiet a few "dangerous" spots at this park (small enclosed spaces, drop-offs, uneven footing on the rocks) but the tradeoff is that the kids will have so much fun!
