Medieval history in abundance

Regensburg Medieval Skyline ©RTG / bauer.comPatrician towerhouses in the Italianate style, the narrow, rambling lanes in the almost fully preserved medieval old town and a near mediterranean ambience have earned Regensburg – a UNESCO World Heritage site – its nickname as “the northernmost city in Italy”. 21st century living, old-established traditions and a distinct joie de vivre go hand in hand in Regensburg. Architectural history in the city goes back 2,000 years, and its magnificent buildings now house trendy bars, boutique stores and familyrun businesses, such as the oldest pewter foundry in Germany and Europe’s only master hatmaker for both gentlemen and ladies. A long list of architectural monuments including St Peter’s Cathedral, the Old Town Hall and the Thurn and Taxis Royal Palace are within walking distance of each other in the traffic-calmed old town.
