An outstanding example of a medieval city, Regensburg is an ideal destination to enjoy the outdoors while exploring castles, cathedrals and more. See the gargoyles at St. Peter’s Cathedral, an imposing Gothic church not far from our Regensburg accommodations. Wander the grounds and rooms at Thurn and Taxis Castle, crossing the 900-year-old stone bridge.
In Regensburg’s old town, take in the 13th-century Old City Hall, and try fried sausages with sauerkraut and mustard on caraway seed rolls at Regensburg’s Sausage Kitchen, the oldest in the world. Don’t miss Germany’s oldest stone building, the Porta Praetoria, which remains from the Roman Settlement at Regensburg.
Visitors can also see the famous displays and exhibits at the Art Forum East German Gallery. For a historical perspective, visit the Hutmacher am Dom to learn about the local millinery industry—it’s convenient to our Regensburg hotels. Tee off at the Sinzing Golf Club, or browse the Christmas Market during the fall and winter for seasonal specialties and artisan wares. Stroll under the lime trees in the 16th-century Regensburg’s City Park and later relax in nearby Duke’s Park’s Renaissance Garden; afterwards, discover some lively European nightlife before returning to your Regensburg hotel.
