What travellers are saying
- This is a beautiful town with a lot of history. The old stone bridge was built over 800 years ago and was probably a model for Charles bridge in Prague. The historic sausage kitchen restaurant has continuously been in operation since 1146 AD. The Cathedral of St. Peter's was built about the same time as the bridge. And Regensburg was an important Roman fortress city, as the Danube River was the border between the empire and the Germanic tribes.
We visited the town in the summer of 2014 and again this past December (for the Christmas Market).Written January 16, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We just stopped in for a few minutes but the Cathedral of St. Peter is beautiful and is free to enter. This cathedral was started in 1273 but not completed until 1520.Written January 16, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The bridge was built in the 12th Century and the story goes (from our guide) that it was built in 11 years. Everyone said that they devil helped in building it so fast. The architect supposedly told the devil that the first three souls that walked over the bridge were his for helping out. This generally would be the king, queen and bishop so the devil made the deal.
When the bridge was finished the architect send a cock, a dog and a pig over first. The devil was mad and tried to destroy the bridge. There is a spot where the bridge appears to drop a little.Written December 31, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We had the chance to visit this very special museum, an incredibly wide collection of anything related to golf, coming from all over the world and from any time. We discovered the real origins of golf, but l won't spoil it! You'll have to check it out yourself! :-)
Definitely worth a visit, and a talk with his super nice creator, Mr Insam.

- The Scottish Doorway of St. James' Church is one of the most imposing and intriguing landmarks in Regensburg. The monks who established the church and abbey in the 11th Century and occupied them for four centuries were Irish, but Scottish Benedictine followed them, hence the name. The Romanesque doorway depicts the Last Judgment, including figures of prostitutes, pimps, jugglers and wastrels – all denied entry into Heaven. Reportedly, bore holes along the doorway were once filled with precious stones.Written June 30, 2022
- It was really interesting to see how Roman ruins have been incorporated into the current/modern architecture of the city. It’s also a testiment to how massive the Roman empire was during its peak. Definitely don’t need to spend a great deal of time here, but 15-20 minute stop will give all of the information you need and a good overview of how the city grew from roman times.Written November 17, 2022
