Regensburg

Regensburg, a 2000-years old Roman settlement and later the first capital of Bavaria, is the economic and cultural center of central and eastern Bavaria. Today, the medieval old town is a UNESCO world heritage site that hosts bustling shopping days and vibrant party nights. Its location at the Danube river and beneath the Upper Palatine, Bavarian, and Bohemian Forests make Regensburg a great springboard for various outdoor activities in the region. Beer Gardens are very popular during the pleasant spring and summer seasons. Winters are relatively mild, but skiing opportunities are just a stone’s throw away. Regensburg can be conveniently reached by international and regional trains from Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna, Munich, and Prague. Munich airport is 1 h away by train or car.
