Amberg Fortifications by EuroTourData

Amberg Medieval Fortifications were built in the 14th century, have an oval shape, and includes defensive walls with a circumference around 3000 meters long. The fortifications were modernized in the 16th and 17th centuries to protect against artillery fire. High defensive walls with a covered parapet, four guarded gates, and almost 100 towers made Amberg the strongest Princely City, as the chronicler wrote in his chronicle around the middle of the sixteenth century. Amberg was not even threatened in any of the wars of the fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and even the Hussites did not dare to besiege the city. Info is based on the article Liste der Baudenkmäler in Amberg - Ehemalige Stadtbefestigung of German Wikipedia.
