Regensburg Germany

Friday 2nd October

Happy Anniversary to me!

Regensburg is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Germany – UNESCO World Heritage Site (escaped WWII with no significant damage), and also in “the book.”

13th-14th century houses

This one is the Goliath house. Oskar Schindler is believed to have lived here. 

  
The taller the house, the wealthier the family – but often the top floors were unused. The balcony of the pink house was apparently featured in a German TV show. 

  
St Peter’s Cathedral 
  
The outside could use a good cleaning, but the inside is where you can see the beautiful stained glass.   
  
Across from the cathedral are these pretty shops and restaurants. We don’t have quaint buildings like this where I live. 

  
Alte Wurstkuche -Germany’s oldest restaurant (and possibly oldest “fast food” restaurant in the world, depending on who you ask). They serve sausages – like tiny American bratwurst – and pretzels, because everyone in Germany sells pretzels. 

  
  
Our tour group happened upon a wedding just after it was done. The happy couple left in a Cadillac – very rare car here according to our guide – but they also had a nicely decorated BMW.  The bride had purple hair. 

  
Regensburg is another lovely German town.  And the weather was perfect.
