Information about Regensburg

Why Regensburg? Regensburg was the first capital of Bavaria and bills itself as "Germany's best-preserved medieval city." Two thousand years of history resulted in some of the region’s finest architectural heritage, a fact recognised by Unesco in 2006. Today's Regensburg is a low-key, laid-back, student sort of place and its tangle of old streets is a joy to wander.
