A fond stroll into the past : Remarkable Regensburg

2nd Pre-Danube Cruise Stop

After bussing it 3 hours from big town Prague— with a burger break at a Czech McDonalds— I arrived in Germany. My very first German town to explore was Regensburg, a well preserved medieval gem at the confluence of the Danube (Donau), Naab and Regen rivers. Though it may be in the shadow of big city Munich, Regensburg is a dearly lauded part of Bavaria. Here is where I met the Danube for the very first time.

From the old stone bridge to distinguished Dom of St Peter, a stroll in Regensburg enchants in Alstadt (old town). In between, I was snapshot crazy for the pastel colored wall surroundings— comparable to the one in many Prague neighborhoods. Call me a peculiar Californian too accustomed to blah-blah Spanish tan architecture everywhere. Hues of limey-green, lemony-yellow and peachy-orange throughout town enthrall me. No matter the cold weather, there is a warmness felt from the pastel wall surroundings. Back to the Dom— the only Gothic cathedral In Bavaria— what a striking edifice, a more muted beauty made of limestone. I peaked inside for about 5 minutes while a service was just commencing, then exited. A silvery human statue greeted me nearby. Maybe I should have drop a few Euros in this hat- or not.

What I adored the most in Regensburg- the feeling of Italian! I had just left Italy 3 days prior entering Germany. Regensburg was reminiscent of Rome and Florence with an emphasis on Greco-Roman architecture throughout the town.

It's no wonder why Regensburg has been deemed as the" northernmost extension of Italy".

Ultimately though, Regensburg is lovely in its own right.

My Take Away: Regensburg, an elegant dish of Donauwaller on a bed of beets— scrumptious.
