Introduction

Regensburg has a lot going for it; located on the Danube river, the impressive medieval old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and counts Sir Norman Foster the multi-award winning British architect amongst its fans, describing it as one of the most beautiful cities in the world! High praise indeed. Tall gothic buildings and narrow streets characterise the old town, as well as the arched stone bridge that crosses the river and the 13th century town hall which still has its original torture chamber; those who are morbidly fascinated may visit as part of a guided tour. Don’t leave without visiting the Sausage Kitchen, where workers on the aforementioned bridge would turn up to eat in the 12th century. It’s still in operation today, serving fried sausages with sauerkraut and mustard in caraway seed buns.
