Today we visited the UNESCO World Heritage town of Regensburg. Although it was a German Public Holiday the town was not too busy.

The history of the town goes back to Roman times when the Romans established a fort by the River Danube in around 80 AD. After the Roman Empire fell in the 5th century Germanic settlers inhabited the region. Over time because of its position on the Danube it became an important trading city. Today due to it surviving World War II largely unscathed it has many Romanesque and Gothic buildings in its old quarter.

It was a beautiful day so we enjoyed wandering by the Danube and then exploring the many old building of the town including the old Stone Bridge, the cathedral and the old town hall. Like many of the European historic old towns there were narrow winding streets opening into large squares with many pavement cafes where you can sit and watch the world go by.
