Regensburg is an ancient and very picturesque German town situated at the confluence of two rivers, the Danube and the Regen. Perhaps, in the whole country, it is difficult to find another city that has retained its medieval beauty almost intact.
Regensburg is very convenient to take as a point while traveling through Eastern Europe: many trains pass through the city on all popular European destinations, but if you want to have an exclusive private day trip to Regensburg from Prague please click here.
The pride of Regensburg is the Cathedral of St. Peter, built in the Gothic style and decorated with bronze cross and crystal.
The Old Town consists of more than thousands of differences in appearance, style and purpose houses. One of its highlights is a huge palace, which for many years belonged to the princely dynasty of Thurn und Taxis. The palace is surrounded by a huge park, which is also an attraction for the tourists.
And certainly, the Old Stone Bridge over the Danube is worthy of your attention.
In addition to the interest in history and architecture, in Regensburg, you can meet more prosaic interests, for example, go to the old Bavarian «Historishe Wurstkuche» and have a dinner of a portion of excellent sausages with sauerkraut and a local beer, or try other dishes that are typical of traditional Bavarian cuisine. Interestingly, this cafe was opened in the 12th century for the builders of the Stone Bridge.

Nuremberg Castle is another city’s famous place. It is the collective name for three fortification buildings, destined for the defense of the city. The complex includes the Imperial Castle, the fortress of the imperial city and the Burgrave Castle.
Among the places we also recommend you to see in Nuremberg German National Museum, the catacombs, the Observatory, the Museum of Railroad (DB Museum), and the Memorium Nuremberg Trials.
Toy Museum and the Nuremberg Zoo are the favorite places not only for the youngest tourists but for quite respectable ladies and gentlemen. And do not forget to buy famous Nuremberg Lebkuchen or ginger cookies on the Market Square!
By the way, we recommend you to start the acquaintance with the peculiarities of national German cuisine with the pub Barfüßer. This famous pub in the heart of the city is a symbol of the German love of beer.
Today it is the largest pub in Nuremberg, designed for 600 guests! Since 1994, their own beer is brewed here. 3 euros per mug is not so expensive to get a taste of real German beer in the heart of Nuremberg.
