Vibrant Middle Ages in the UNESCO World Heritage
UNESCO world heritage Regensburg
Regensburg: Roman military camp, central hub of trading in medieval Europe and “capital” of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation – Regensburg experienced a lot in its 2000 years’ history. Join a journey through time through the old city of Regensburg and discover the “City of 1000 memorials”.
The history of Regensburg started in the year 179 after Christ when emperor Marc Aurel founded a large military camp at the confluence of the rivers Regen and Danube as a protection against the Teutons. In the centuries to follow Regensburg developed from the first “capital” of Bavaria to one of the central hubs of commerce in Europe and with the “Perpetual Imperial Assembly” to one of the “capitals” of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.
Almost unscathed by World War II the ensemble of the historical center of Regensburg was honored with the title of a “World Heritage Site” in 2006. About 1.000 single monuments are witnesses of the economic, political and cultural meaning of this fascinating city.
The “Stone Bridge“, one of the landmarks of Regensburg, was named the 8th wonder of the world when it was built and is offering a magnificent view of the skyline of the city that is characterized by the medieval dynasty towers. Those prestige buildings of patrician families usually to be found in Italy bespeak the enormous wealth of the merchants of this time and are unique in Germany.
The Cathedral St. Peter, the second landmark of Regensburg, is not only impressing by its size and its Gothic architecture. With more than 1.000 medieval glass plates it is one of the largest collections of medieval glass paintings and makes the “heavenly Jerusalem” a tangible experience.
Regensburg – a culinary delight
But Regensburg is not only culture, but culinary pleasure as well. Amongst numerous street cafes and comfortable restaurants the “Historic Wurstkuchl“…
…is a culinary highlight. In this maybe oldest still existing fast food restaurant almost nothing has changed over the centuries. The homemade sausages are still grilled on the charcoal barbecue and served with homemade mustard and sauerkraut.
If there still is some time left…
After the varied journey to Regensburg through the world’s largest contiguous hop-growing region, there are also several ideas for the return trip.
The Walhalla in Donaustauf was built by King Ludwig I. to honour German greats from politics, science and culture.
- At least as impressive is the Hall of Liberation in Kelheim, also built by Ludwig I.
- If there is still time, the visit can be combined with a short visit to the Weltenburg Monastery, which you can reach by boat from Kelheim.
