Regensburg: Top things to do and see

Regensburg is a beautiful city with a medieval core in the heart of Bavaria. In 2014, the medieval center of Regensburg became an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Legends of the Old Stone Bridge and the St. Peter’s Cathedral make the city’s history special. Our top things to do and see when discovering Regensburg are as following.

  1. Explore the Old Town

Regensburg is most famous for its medieval old town.

Strolling around in small cobblestoned streets, admiring buildings which history dates far back and searching for some landmarks are absolute guaranties for having an amazing time there!

  1. Cross the Old Stone Bridge

The Old Stone Bridge is the oldest bridge in Germany and is considered an architectural masterpiece of the medieval ages.

Notice that the bridge is only for pedestrians! When you plan to visit Regensburg, be sure to read the legend before.

  1. Stroll next to the Danube

Danube is the name of the river flowing through Regensburg.

Due to that, the quality of life is very high and spending time at the Danube is more than just enjoyable. Also notice the ships! Excursion boats are nothing unusual.

  1. Eat a sausage in the Old Sausage Kitchen

Located near the Danube next to the Old Stone Bridge, the Old Sausage Kitchen is the oldest of this kind in the whole world.

As you can imagine, it is a must to try a sausage!

  1. Marvel at St. Peter’s/Regensburg Cathedral

St. Peter’s Cathedral or Regensburg Cathedral is the most important sight of Regensburg.

Like the Old Stone Bridge, the Cathedral has an exciting legend regarding its history. But the hard facts are that construction started in 7th century! Of course, it was rebuilt several times.

Something else special is that the church is owned by the land Bavaria and not by the diocese.
