(Accommodations, Regensburg)

After breakfast, meet your guide at the Tourist Information Office for an informative and fun tour of Regensburg. You'll not only learn about the history of this picturesque city, but also its longstanding beer heritage.

The city heralds itself as one of Germany's oldest towns, established by the Romans in 179 A.D. Stretched out along the Danube river, the Old Town is home to some wonderful Gothic and medieval buildings, which were largely spared by bombings in WWII. Because of the city's unique status as the only authentically preserved large medieval city in Germany" the Old Town Regensburg with Stadtamhof, has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During your stroll through the old town center, you will learn interesting facts about the history, architecture and current life of the people of Regensburg. Your guide will relate entertaining stories of this historic city while walking through winding streets, and making the Middle Ages come to life. You'll hear why Regensburg is called the northern most city in Italy (hint: sunshine and cafes). You'll pass the Thurn and Taxis Palace, also known as St. Emmeram's Abbey, Europe's largest inhabited palace (more rooms than Buckingham Palace). The tour will end at the historic restaurant Wurstkuchl (Sausage Kitchen). This historic riverside restaurant has been serving customers since 1146 when workers completed the bridge across the Danube. You'll enjoy traditional finger-size sausages, grilled over beech wood and dished up with its own sauerkraut and sweet grainy mustard, accompanied by one of their 3 beers on tap.

Today is free for independent sightseeing, and there's much to take in. Start at St. Peter's Cathedral, dominating Regensburg's skyline. The cathedral is widely considered to be the best example of Gothic architecture in Bavaria. Consider taking a tour of the Altes Rathaus (City Hall) to see its museum with an impressive exhibition of German and European history. The lower level finds the dungeons, including the torture chamber in its original setting. For some levity, pause for a coffee, or tea and cake, at the nearby 1686 Cafe Prinzess, Germany's oldest coffee shop. Admire the stucco work and frescoes at the Alte Kapelle, the oldest Catholic place of worship in Bavaria and first established in the 800s by Charlemagne's grandson. The magnificent Stone Bridge is a must-see when visiting the city. A medieval masterpiece, the bridge is Germany's oldest vaulted stone bridge, built between 1135 and 1146. Just off the bridge is the Alte Linde, and a convenient place to stop for lunch. This cozy bier garden on the banks of the Danube, offers traditional Bavarian cuisine, and the most popular beer, Kneitinger. An added bonus are the terrific views of the Old Town and Cathedral. After lunch, stop at the Regensburg Historical Museum, displaying regional art and relics from the Stone Age to the present in a 13th century monastery. There are 1,400 listed landmarks in the center of Regensburg, and of the most frequently visited by tourists, is a house in which Oskar Schindler once lived (Watmarkt 5), now marked by a blue plaque.
