Regensburg, the 2,000-year-old Roman city, is located at the northernmost point of the Danube. Emerging from the Second World War with little damage, it bears many treasures of Roman and Gothic architecture. In 2006, the 'Old Town of Regensburg with Stadtamhof' was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list, giving credit to the city's former political role, its function as a base of medieval trading and the excellent quality of the town's architecture and structure.

About a thousand Romanesque and Gothic listed structures have been preserved over the centuries and help to make Regensburg a very special location. Walking along the charming alleys in the pedestrian zone of the Old Town, visitors can easily experience the culture of this historic city with its big Patrician houses and towers, influenced by Italian architecture, a great number of churches and monastic ensembles, narrow alleys, surrounded by the houses of merchants and craftsmen. The several centuries old stone bridge is to be counted among the masterpieces of European bridge architecture and offers a picturesque setting for a city walk.

One of the most interesting sights in Regensburg is the Thurn and Taxis Palace. It is the setting for one of Germany's most atmospheric Christmas markets.

If you are looking to experience more of Germany, we also have Dresden city breaks and hotels in Bayreuth available.

Try a regional delicacy, the sausages, in the traditional 'Wurstkuchl', the oldest sausage tavern in the world.

Visit the Thurn and Taxis Castle Festival in July, when concerts and plays are shown in the castle courtyard.
