In 2006, Regensburg officially gained the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site for having “the only authentically preserved large medieval city in Germany”. Here you’ll find a one-stop list of the top-ranked places to visit, from tourist attractions, to restaurants and bars, and where to work from if you need a workspace with fast internet. Our Community host in Regensburg, Tanja, has great recommendation for you!
1. What to see: Top rated tourist attractions
St. Peter’s Cathedral
One of Regensburg’s landmarks, marked with Gothic architecture, you can hear the beautiful sounds from the largest hanging organ in the world inside St. Peter’s Cathedral. The Cathedral is located within walking distance from the Danube river, where you can take boat trips to explore the city by water.
Old Stone Bridge
Crossing the River Danube, Old Stone Bridge offers beautiful views of the city. If you’d like to find out more about the construction and history of the bridge, make sure to stop by the Bridge Tower Museum, which is the only remaining tower on the bridge. To us, also looks quite good for a sunset drink!
St. Emmermam’s Palace:
You can opt for a guided tour through the St. Emmermam’s Palace, which was built in the 19th century, and experience how the lives of some of the most prestigious aristocrats of the time lived through the preserved palace interior.
Built during the time of King Ludwig in 1807, Walhalla is a resemblance of the Athenian Parthenon, symbolizing the support to unify many German states. It is suggested to book an inclusive boat tour that will take you from Regensburg to Walhalla. Many of the boat trips that you can board from Regensburg include a guided tour of the Walhalla. It will look like you are standing in Athens!
2. Guided Tours
Here you can find several packages for individuals and groups that take you to many of the UNESCO World Heritage sites within the city. Packages include breakfast and two nights’ accommodation stays at a local hotel. If you’re traveling alone and would like an idea of how to spend the duration of your trip, here you will find suggestions on traditional restaurants, what to visit, and where to shop for souvenirs.
