Sep 11, 2019 - On the Danube

Yesterday we went through the last of about 60 sets of locks (over the course of this trip) to bring us to the height of the continental divide; three provided more than an 80 foot change each. Though our travel distance was only 99 km, it took all night to get through the locks on that stretch. We are now on the "downhill" side of things and will dock soon in Regensberg. It was our first sunny cruising morning and I didn't mind that we were delayed at a couple of locks. The walking tour in Regensburg was informative, but we didn't move...

May 2, 2019 - Golf?

Another morning of cruising, this time starting on the Main-Danube canal. The weather was lovely, so we spent a fair amount of time on the bow watching the river flow beneath us and the beautiful forests and towns pass alongside us. We docked in Regensburg along the banks of the Danube around 12:30, had some lunch and were ready to see the sights with our local guide, Margit. She is from the area and was excellent. The city, the oldest on the Danube, dates back to the early Romans and they have found remnants of the stone walls they built...

Apr 23, 2019 - Regensberg

2019-04-23.Regensburg In 2015, on our camping trip to Alaska, we stayed along side of a lovely couple from Germany with whom we shared a campfire. We vowed to keep in touch and....we did through emails and my trip journal. Today, Beate and Helmut drove the four hours from their home in Dottenhausen, Germany to meet our ship in Regensburg. And it actually worked out! The stars aligned, they found our ship and we spent an enjoyable day eating, drinking and walking about Regensburg, another beautiful medieval town. The cathedral was your...

Aug 7, 2015 - Altstadt - Old City

Nürnberg, Germany A Roman encampment on the Danube around AD 90 is the present day Regensburg. It was an important camp on the most northern point of the Danube and there was a wall around the entire city which is now Regensburg's Altstadt ("Old City"). We viewed the town’s 12th-century Steinerne Brücke (Germany’s oldest surviving stone bridge), the 15th-century Altes Rathaus (Town Hall), towering Dom St. Peter (St. Peter’s Cathedral), and the remains of the Roman wall as well as a more quirky destination. In 1135 AD a building was erected...

Aug 6, 2015 - Passau

Regensburg, Germany Passau, a city of 50,000, is known as "City of Three Rivers," because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north. On our journey there we passed Walhalla, built in 1807 by Mad King Ludwig who bankrupt his country by building castles and palaces all over the country. He was in his Greek infatuation phase when he built Walhalla. In Passau we visited the Italian Baroque-style St. Stephan’s Cathedral. With 17,774 pipes and 233 registers, the organ at St. Stephen's was long held to be...

Sep 4, 2012 - Sept 4 to 17. Germany

Sept 4 to17 This is in point form because Grammar got way behind with her thinking and writing. She was having so much fun doing! Sept 4 went to Frankfurt for the day with Suze (Lina's Mom), Adrian's girlfriend, and his girlfriend's brother's mother-in-law from Mexico. Fortunately Suze speaks Spanish; so Spanish, English and German flowed wildly throughout the day. We started out with a good bus tour but Grammar and I cannot remember the details now. We saw lovely buildings, both modern and ancient, often right beside one another. In the...

Aug 19, 2011 - Regensberg and rebellion

At 10 am on Friday we docked in another of the ‘berg’s, Regensberg. Any place ending in ‘berg’ means we can’t spend time on the top deck as the clearance under the bridges is in the words of the Captain “only two fingers” high. A chain across the stairs keeps us away so I was pleased to jump on shore when we docked. By now in the trip we have abandoned the organized ship tours, so while the majority of folks walked around the town with a guide, we went our own way. I wandered alone to the centre of town and landed at Paul’s Boutique café as...

Aug 13, 2011 - Regensburg August 11-13

Regensburg's old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. After spending some time here it is easy to see why.Buildings date from the 1100's and up. When you walk by some buildings you can see that they are leaning left or right or forward or back. We arrived in Regensburg and wandered around town. The hotel clerk said there was a very good restaurant called Regensburger Weissbrauhaus. She said that the food was traditional Bavarian. A very interesting restaurant where they brew their own beer on location. After dinner we wandered around town...

Jun 9, 2009 - Drive by woods and water

Wednesday 3rd June. Today was a travelling day. Left Czech via a beautiful road over the hills, past a huge lake and holiday centre, towards Linz in Austria. Our route now followed the Danube (Donau) which through this area is bright green. Austria is so different from Czech in that everything is ordered and tidy from roads to farms. Had lunch at a riverside biergarten which was also different to Czech with the bill about 50% more. Then took the motorway to Regensburg and found a great Gasthaus near the town to stay.
