About Regensburg

As a World Heritage Site of UNESCO, Regensburg offers not only history and museums, but vibrant and living culture in equal measure. Regensburg's medieval townscape is made up of numerous churches and fine old aristocratic houses from the 13th and 14th centuries. Fortunately the city was spared by the bombs of 2nd World War and though its Old Town is a unique ensemble worldwide, formed by almost a thousand historic buildings which are denoted as architectural monuments.

Regensburg is also a popular river cruise destination, with excursion ships sailing the local waterways and beyond. Visitors are also drawn to this historic city for its wonderful cathedral, its Roman remains, and its location at the doorstep of the Black Forest and other attractions in southern Germany.

Despite its well-preserved 2,000-year-old heritage, Regensburg isn't just an architectural theme park: It's an energetic, prosperous town of 142,000 with a major university that gives a lively boost to the cultural and entertainment scene.

The city has a lot of sightseeings worth visiting. Make sure to visit some of the beautiful architectual monuments, enjoy a coffee on the squares or go for a stroll in the parks and gardens.
