A Medieval Wonder in Bavaria

By Linda Tancs

Located at the northernmost bend in the Danube, Regensburg, Germany is a Bavarian city with a distinctive history as a center of the Holy Roman Empire that turned to Protestantism.  Its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage City, the only historic city in Germany to remain intact during the bombings of WWII.  Since its beginnings as a military base and trading post in the 9th century, the cityscape now attests to a stunning array of ancient Roman, Romanesque and Gothic structures built over two millenia.  It’s one of many sights that river cruisers enjoy along the Danube.
