Amberg Congress Center

Description

The Amberg Congress Centrum is one of the top Bavarian congress centres and offers an ideal venue in the countryside and close to the old town.

Underground parking, direct hotel access, its own restaurant and the proximity to Amberg's historic Old Town - which is worth seeing and can be reached via a footpath at ground level along the Vils River - guarantee short distances and provide an ideal environment for congresses, conferences, trade fairs and corporate events. In addition, the Amberg Congress Centre (ACC) offers a varied cultural programme ranging from cabaret and comedy to dance, theatre, concerts and art exhibitions. All rooms in the building are accessible for wheelchair users. For people with walking difficulties, two additional disabled parking spaces are available near the main entrance. Since the end of 2021, hearing-impaired people have the option of using a hearing aid at the ACC. This reproduces speech digitally and can be adapted to individual needs.
