BAVARIA Regensburg 1


Aſt er a 90-minute train ride, the urban fast-paced station of Regensburg may make tourists wonder


why they leſt Munich in the fi rst place. However, once they step out the main doors, a pleasant surprise is in store. Old Town Regensburg is a great place to unwind. Walk


through an open platz and enjoy lunch in one of the many open-air cafes. People watching while enjoying a currywurst at Café Prock is a great change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Munich.


2 Aſt er a leisurely lunch, tourists should head over


to the stone bridge crossing the Danube River. Built in the 12th century, it is one of Regensburg’s biggest


claims to fame, as it was a valuable asset for trade routes. As the day winds down, grab a cone of gelato for 1 euro at


Eispavillon Gelato & Caff é and explore one of Regensburg’s smaller cathedrals, or step into one of its many shopping bou- tiques or big-name stores. Either way, Regensburg has a lot to off er and is a great escape from the big city.

T e pedestrian-only


cobblestone streets make it easy to navigate Old Town. T e gothic spires of St. Peter’s Cathedral towering over the pastel buildings with wrought iron window signs will cause excitement to see what’s around the next corner. Standing in front of St. Peter’s Cathedral will fi ll visitors with wonder. T ere is no fee to enter, but the interior cannot compare with the grandiose


carvings and decorations of its exterior.


Regensburg is a place to escape the noise of the big city. Because it lacks the traditional tourist traps, there are no large crowds or tour groups around, but that doesn’t mean this medieval Bavarian town has nothing to offer.
