Regensburg is a city of outstanding historic significance and one of Germany’s best preserved medieval cities, dating back to the time of the Celts. Established during the Holy Roman Empire and the only German city not bombed during WWII. Regensburg has at least 1,300 listed buildings of “historic interest” and, since 2006, holds the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A guided walking tour will show you the city’s architectural highlights, including the Old Town Hall and the Porta Praetoria, gate to an ancient Roman fort built in 179 A.D. Wander through the city’s lanes and alleys to discover the many mansions with the high towers. Wealthy families built these towers to emphasize their status and wealth during the Middle Ages, and many still remain today. Walk across the 12th-century Steinerne Brücke (Stone Bridge), the oldest of its kind in Germany.
