A Bridge to the Past

Regensburg’s cobbled streets, colorful façades and step gables constitute Germany’s best-preserved medieval center. A 12th-century stone bridge crosses the Danube River between the UNESCO World Heritage-listed old town and islands forming the Stadtamhof district.

Regensburg was an important trading center and its wealthy merchants built tall towers, like the Goldener Turm, to outdo each other. The dual spires of its Gothic cathedral tower over red roofs sheltering sidewalk cafes, traditional bierkellers and modern bars.

Niedermünster abbey also has square towers, while the Alte Kapelle’s most impressive feature is intricate gold interior detailing. Nearby Neupfarrplatz houses the annual Christmas markets, while the old town hall is on Kohlenmarkt. Just down the street, a large David and Goliath mural adorns a house.

A plaque outside a more modest house marks Oskar Schindler’s former home. Much grander is Schloss Thurn und Taxis, an 8th-century monastery converted to a noble residence. At the eastern end of a park encircling the historic center, there's a villa built for King Maximilian II of Bavaria. It overlooks riverboats cruising past a more outlandish royal creation, Donaustauf’s Walhalla monument, resembling a Greek temple. has a great range of Regensburg accommodations including 4-star hotels with spas, cheap apartments and guesthouses near the train station.
