Regensburg / Germany
The city of Regensburg in Bavaria is beautiful. It lies at the mouth of the Regen into the Danube and has about 140,000 inhabitants. Although the city has a historical center with all kinds of medieval churches and houses, it is a modern and lively city. The numerous sights are hardly accessible in a short time, the unique flair however already.
The dome at the old Kornmarkt where the famous Regensburg dome sparrows can usually be heard is of course, is worth visiting. Architecturally, this church dates back to the 13th century and is of Gothic style. Other worthwhile churches are St. Jacob (near the theater) and St. Emmeran. Not to be missed is the visit of the Old Town Hall and the Haid Square, the Porta Praetoria (2nd century) as well as the various bridges, which are illuminated in the evening especially in the romantic light. Regensburg is, of course, also known for the princely palace of Thurn und Taxis, a magnificent residence with a museum. There are many more sights to see in the city, as there are plenty of possibilities for sight-seeing muffles to relax on the Danube or to get to know the lively charm of the city.
