Regensburg


The Neupfarrkirche, an evangelical parish church. Construction of this church was begun in 1519 and not completed until 1860.

Fresco of David and Goliath created in 1573 on the side of Goliathhaus, a former castle.


The Regensburg Cathedral, dedicated to St. Peter and the seat of the Catholic diocese of Regensburg. It was built in 1273.



We had already eaten lunch, but could not resist having an afternoon snack at the Wurstküchl, a 500 year old restaurant serving grilled homemade sausages and sauerkraut, located at the foot of the Stone Bridge and right next to the Danube.


We sat outside to eat, but my daughter went inside and took this photo in the kitchen.

Bratwürstl Vom Rost Mit Sauerkraut. Delicious!

Looking back at the 12th century Stone Bridge which crosses the Danube into the Old Town. It was built between 1135 and 1146.


The last stop on our cruise was Regensburg, one of Germany's largest and best preserved medieval cities and also designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We spent the day walking around the Altstadt (Old Town) looking at the beautiful architecture and browsing the many shops. I couldn't resist buying the cuckoo clock you see in the last photo. I hope you have enjoyed my travel photos as much as I have enjoyed posting them. Next week, it's back to photos of Tallahassee, so I need to get outside with my camera!

Great images.
I suddenly got hungry looking at the food images.
I liked the fact that your daughter actually went inside to take the picture in the kitchen :)

The cathedral is my favourite. I've got a cousin who'd enjoy those nutcrackers.

Thank you Lois. I've loved seeing all these photos. What a fantastic trip you took. It makes me wonder what you are planning for next year. I remember eating bratwurst in Germany and found it so much better than what we get here.

More gorgeous photos. I'm having a hard time getting my mind around the fact that some of these structures are a thousand years old, or more. How can a restaurant be 500 years old and still functioning? And functioning well - you won't find bratwurst like that here!

I have definitely enjoyed your travel shots Lois. The architecture is to fabulous, I can't believe the age of some of the buildings and the bridge built in the 1200's.. incroyable!

oh yum oh yum on the sausage.. and wow on 500 year old restaurant. LOVE the pink building in the center and that mural of David and Goliath is amazing. I love the feet on the giant, look at all that detail and big toes in those sandles

I love the cathedral, it's absolutely beautiful and built all those years ago, pretty impressive. The food photos make me want a bratwurst sandwich. Great photos by you and your daughter.

I've loved your pics, Lois! Makes me wish I could have stowed away in your suitcase! I must do one of those river cruises one day!

So much irresistible in these photos, including those sausages. Your clock looks like a worthy purchase and memorable souvenir.

I enjoyed every bit of your wonderful trip Lois! Am sure we couldn't have resisted that snack either. What a lovely and historical city. And you have a great souvenir with the clock.
