A World Heritage Day in a Well-Preserved Medieval Metropolis
Regensburg has a very long history of importance. The Romans built a major legion camp here; during the early Middle Ages the city was a major trading center, thanks to its convenient location and a stone bridge built in the 1100’s; and Regensburg played a primary role in the latter stages of the Holy Roman Empire as host city of the Empire’s only perpetual parliament. You will learn about this fascinating history on our tour. Regensburg is considered the best preserved medieval large city in Germany, as it was spared from the bombings during WWII. This gives Regensburg and its old town a unique charm and historic feeling.
On our tour we’ll see some remnants of the Roman times as well as the medieval the Stone Bridge, built before the city of Munich was even founded. We also have an inside tour with a local guide of the old city hall and the perpetual assembly hall. We will also have a look inside St. Peter’s Cathedral, one of the finest gothic chruches in all of Germany.
A university town, Regensburg is a cultually hip sort of town, which means lots of small shops and many options for lunch. Sometimes we just go to the most famous sausage house in the country; it is on the river next to the Stone Bridge. there is time in the afternoon for some strolling or shopping or perhaps a visit to the brand new House of Bavarian History.
On our tours we always try to show you as much of the scenery a possible. At the Walhalla, our last stop on this tour, there is a lovely view of the Danube and the surrounding countryside. Perched on a ridge above the river, the Walhalla looks like an ancient Greek temple, but was built in the 19th century by King Ludwig I as a pantheon to German heros.
