Germany’s Old Stone Bridge

By Linda Tancs

Germany’s oldest stone bridge, and its first to cross the Danube, is an icon of the Bavarian city of Regensburg.  Built in the 1100s, the 16-arch bridge was used by crusaders on their way to the Holy Land.  Nowadays the span’s southside bratwurst eatery is a go-to destination for sausage lovers.  And what goes well with brats?  Well, beer of course.  On the north side of the bridge is Spitalgarten, site of one of the oldest surviving hospital breweries where patrons enjoy a healthy stein or two.
