Dear Visitor,

It is my pleasure to welcome you in the Unesco-World-Heritage City

of Regensburg, the most preserved medieval city in all of Germany.

I am convinced that this Tourist Guide will be an important key in

your explorations of Regensburg; a city that is at once stylish, fresh

and modern while maintaining its most valued treasure, its cultivated

history. This practical guidebook not only introduces you to Regensburg and what

it has to offer. It also lists and defines the most important landmarks, historical monuments,

ruins, streets, and squares, and includes many more highlights.

In the spirit of Regensburg, I wish you a terrific time discovering our historical city!

With kindest regards,

Hans Schaidinger

Mayor of Regensburg

LEGEND

Porta Praetoria & Castra Regina

A

Steinerne Brücke

Castra Regina was established under the Emperor Marc Aurel in 179 AD as

a military camp for 6000 men with its strategic location being the northernmost

point on the Danube. This fort was approximately 450 x 550 meters

large with a V-shaped surrounding ditch measuring 6 metres wide and 3

metres deep. The 70-90 cm wall base (on which the fort wall measuring

1.8 metres thick and 9 metres high stood with its 30 towers and 4 entrance

gates) can still be seen today at certain places including the porta praetoria,

the Dachauplatz multi-storey car park, Am Königshof, and Ernst-Reuter- Platz.

The north gate of the fort, once called Porta Aquarum (water gate), was

renamed after the completion of the street ‘Via Praetoria’, from where it got

its present name, Porta Praetoria. The area was unearthed in 1890 after it

was included in the construction of the Bischöfliches Brauhaus (bishop’s

brewery) in the late Middle Ages. The prevailing view is that it used to be a

double gate with two arches and an east and west tower. The towers each

had 2 floors with 5 round-arched windows to defend against attacks. Another

windowed storey was also located above their 4-metre wide doors.

The archway still in existence is made from 13 tapered limestones which fit

against each other to exact precision.

Along with the larger Porta Nigra in Trier (180 AD), the Porta Praetoria is the

oldest above-ground structure north of the Alps.

The Stone Bridge, was constructed from 1135 to 1146 in Romanesque

style. The bridge was originally built with 16 supporting arches giving it

a total length of 330 metres. In 1487, the 16th arch was filled in with the

construction of the ‘Salzstadel‘ at the Wiedfang channel on the city side

of the bridge. The arches have a width ranging from 10 to 17 metres and

the up-river points of their supporting columns are equipped with icebreakers.

Originally reinforced with stone in the river bed, the columns are

now supported by cement to create the legendary ‘Regensburg Danube

whirlpools’.

In the 13th century, the bridge was equipped with 3 fortified towers. The

‘black tower’ which was located on the ‘Stadtamhof’ side, was eliminated

in 1810 together with its moats, small defence towers and a drawbridge

because of war damage. The middle tower was removed back in 1784 after

ice impact made it unstable. The only remaining tower today is the ‘bridge

tower’ or debtor’s prison on the city or southern side. This tower is decorated

with two clocks and paintings depicting battles from the 30-year war.

Legend has it that the cathedral builder and the bridge builder had a bet with

each other as to who would finish their project first. As the construction of the

cathedral began to progress much faster, the bridge builder decided to make a

pact with the devil and won. However, the bridge builder had to promise the devil

the first 3 souls that would cross the bridge and thus could not savour his victory.

However, a hooded monk wisely advised him to send 3 animals across first and

2 roosters and a dog were the first to cross the bridge. The devil was so furious

that he made a huge hole in the stone railing which could be seen as proof for

many years.


Salt routes are the oldest trading routes in Europe,

twisting from Italy up over the Alps to the north

and east. Salt was often so valuable that many soldiers

had their wages paid out in salt rather than

money. During the 13th century, however, salt

originated from the salt mines of Reichenhall from

where it travelled through Passau and then up the

Danube to Regensburg. From there, it would be

Engelburgergasse Nr. 8:

Adam Weishaupt’s hideout

The founder of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, lived in

the Engelburggasse in Regensburg from 1785 to 1787.

This is suggested on an 18th century engraving, where

the house with the number 8 is visible in the background.

On May 1st 1776, the order of the ‘Federation of the Perfectibilists‘

was founded by Weishaupt in Ingolstadt. This

order would later be renamed the ‘Order of the Illuminati’

(from the Latin meaning “the enlightened”). Despite

what many films and books claim, the goal of the order

had nothing to do with sinister and evil powers. On the

contrary - a ‘light of reason’ which was long oppressed

by church dogmas was to be exposed in order to create

a new world order. The aim was a complete reform of the

government, religion, and education. Virtue, wisdom, and

science should prevail over persecution and despotism.

High-ranking noblemen and celebrities of the time, such

as Goethe, became members of the Illuminati.

In 1785, the Bavarian sovereign Karl Theodor banned the

Illuminati in the whole of Bavaria. Adam Weishaupt fled

to what was then the free city of Regensburg on 16th February

1785 dressed as a craftsman. On July 20th 1785,

the priest and fellow Illuminati member Johann Jakob

Lanz visited him. As both were walking near the city gate,

they encountered a heavy storm. As if God was outraged

by his bold affiliation with the Illumati, Lanz was struck by

Salzstadel

further distributed at the most important transfer station of that day

and age. The buying and selling of this ‘white gold’ was run by the salt

lords and was only taken over by the state in the 16th century. Horsedrawn

carts, with often as many as 40 horses per cart, would bring

the salt to the depot (Salzstadel) up until 1616. The salt would be stored

in 3 main floors and 5 additional attic floors that were equipped

with a complex rope-pull system to manage the flourishing trade.

As the original wood construction of the depot could not bear the

weight of the salt, the wood beams were later replaced by stone supports.

The depot was completely restored in 1991.

As Regensburg qualified as a free city, it had the right to collect tolls

from ships. The ships would travel through a channel (the Wiedfang

channel which has since been filled in) and would be charged a toll.

The province of Bavaria wanted to avoid paying this toll so built another

salt depot in Stadtamhof in 1600. Many ships were then forced

back underneath the north side of the stone bridge to Salzstadel in

order to pay the toll. In 1606 the city of Regensburg hired Hanns Heygl,

also a captain, to take control of the situation. He stood watch on

the bridge with his mighty axe, where he would hack the ropes of

the ships as they were docked and would send them back into the

dangerous currents making them unable to unload their cargo.

lightning and he was killed immediately. A list of members

of the Illuminati was found in his clothing. The free city of

Regensburg was then pressured to extradite Weishaupt.

Bavaria even commissioned spies to arrest Weishaupt the

second he set foot on Bavarian soil (for example Bavarian

Stadtamhof). Weishaupt fled from Regensburg to Gotha’s

ducal court in 1787. However, the Illuminati continued to

be slandered and persecuted while Weishaupt attempted

to clear his name and rehabilitate the order. He never succeeded

in doing this and later died in 1830.

Keplerhaus

Keplerstraße 5

Johannes Kepler is renowned for

his established laws on physics

and planetary movement theories.

Born on Dec 27th 1571, he lived

in two different houses in Regensburg.

He died in the Keplerhaus in

1630.

Kepler taught in Linz and had to leave Regensburg frequently

to support his mother who was accused of witchcraft

in Leonberg and Güglingen, or to spend time in Ulm

where he printed the Rudolphic tables. Kepler travelled to

many cities with the title ‘the emperor’s mathematician’,

and moved to Sagan in 1628 to serve for General Wallenstein.

However, he left part of his belongings behind in

Regensburg which indicated that he did intend to return

Rathaus, Reichstag & Folterkammer

Regensburg City Hall was built over

multiple centuries. The tower which

was built in 1260 is especially noteworthy.

This 55-metre high tower

forms part of Regensburg’s postcard

one day. Amongst these belongings was a handwritten

list of his possessions. This list is currently on display in

the Keplerhaus. Having returned and while travelling on

to Linz, Kepler became extremely ill in Regensburg and

died very suddenly. He is buried in an unknown location

in Regensburg’s inner city.

Opening hours: Sat, Sun, and holidays 10:30 - 16:00, Easter

The ‘Goliath House’ (Goliathhaus), built

in 1260, is considered one of the most

well-known landmarks of Regensburg with its painting of David and Goliath

from the year 1573. Along with Haus Heuport, this is the largest ‘city castle’

in the inner city and is located on the southern base of the old Roman fort.

It is likely that the name is not derived from the biblical epic, but rather from

the name ‘Goliards’. Theology students were called Goliards after their guardian

angel “Golias”. It is believed that the present Goliath house was built on

the location of the quarters in which the travellers often stayed. The house

was subsequently the headquarters of the Tundorfer patrician family, later

being taken over by the Dollingers, Mallers and the Tucher patricians from

Nuremberg.

is the Reichssaal (Parliament Hall).

Not only important as a work of art,

the Reichsaal was also the location

of the first German Parliament. This

parliament was not democratically

elected. The emperor was required to

meet with a collection of representa-

tives in order to make legal, administrative,

and military decisions.

The location of the Reichstag continued

to change from city to city up

until 1663, when it became the ‘perpetual

parliament’ based in Regensburg.

Because representatives were

not physically present, a congress of

ministers would continually meet to

represent the rulers, princes, electors,

and imperial cities. But the City

Hall was not just a place for conventions

and intellectual discussions;

powerful forms of persuasion were

practiced in the cellar to expose the

truth.


The torture chamber in Regensburg is oneof-a-kind

in Germany and should be on

every visitor’s list. Everything has been left

in its original condition; from the chamber

layout to each device and contraption. Pain

interrogation had been implemented since

the beginning of the 14th century to force

confessions, as a confession was imperative

for an official conviction. An extraordinary

tour through the basement of the city hall

will show the prison cells and torture instruments.

This trip back through time is an absolute

must!

Entrance with guided tours only: every half

hour from 9:30-12:00 and from 13:30 - 16:00,

a tour in English is held at 15:00.

Schloss St. Emmeram, Thurn & Taxis

Schloss St. Emmeram, Thurn & Taxis

The former abbey and Benedictine monastery at St. Emmeram

has been owned by the Thurn & Taxis royal family

since 1812. The royal family moved to Regensburg in 1748

to represent the emperor at the ‘perpetual Reichstag’. After

the old empire was dissolved, Prince Karl Alexander

received the monastery as partial compensation for surrendering

his rights to the Bavarian postal system to the

state. During the 19th century, this complex comprising

several hundred rooms was reconstructed to create one

of the largest private residences in Europe. The museum

area of the residence, cloister, royal stables and treasure

chamber provide a comprehensive insight to 1000 years

of monastery tradition, as well as the lifestyle of one of the

most important aristocratic families in Europe. Experience

the cloisters with its medieval flair, or enjoy the splendour

of the rococo manor house and European craftsmanship

in the treasure chambers. The royal stables, which were

originally constructed in 1827, are now home to the carriage

museum. With over 70 vehicles and carriages, it is

the last remaining collection of aristocratic carriages in

the world.

Regensburger Dom

Württembergstr.

The first church stood on the grounds of the present

St. Peter’s Cathedral as far back as 700 AD. A

cathedral which was subsequently built there burned

down several times before the construction of

the cathedral we can see today began in the year

1273. This new cathedral, however, was not completed

until the year 1870/72, 600 years later! The

famous 105-metre tall spires were only finished in

the last 10 years of the construction.

Inside the cathedral you can see the famous four

part “Annunciation Group” with the ”Erminold Maria“.

It refers back to the alleged “Erminold craftsman”,

who carved out and colourfully painted a

figure of Mary and the famous laughing Angel

Gabriel in about 1280. On the two western pillars,

the figures are juxtaposed to one another at the

nave crossing. Mary‘s hand is raised slightly to

greet the angel and in her other hand she is holding

a book. St. Peter and Paul are portrayed in

stone on the eastern pillars of the crossing, which

were constructed in 1320 and 1360-1370 respectively.

And since 2009, the cathedral now houses

the largest free-hanging organ in the world with

80 registers.

CATHEDRAL TREASURES

The cathedral’s treasure has both flourished and

dwindled since the 10th century; many objects

were added to the collection and many sold to

finance the cathedral’s construction. A special

guided tour will reveal its many valuable relics

and liturgical artefacts.

Dreieinigkeitskirche

Schottenkirche - Schottenportal

Irish Benedictine monks (Scotti in the vernacular language

referred to the Gaels of Ireland and Scotland) founded the

St. Jakob Abbey in around 1090. Construction of the abbey

and portal were finished in 1200. It is considered one

of the most meaningful works of occidental art. Experts

believe that all of the figures portrayed were once painted

and some even gold or silver-plated with the holes being

The Church of the Holy Trinity, located on the Gesandtenstrasse, was built

in the midst of the Thirty Years War. This was one of the first evangelical

churches in Bavaria. Construction began on July 4th 1627, and was completed

only four-and-a-half years later on December 5th 1631. The original

benches dating back to 1630-31 are still used today. The intricate wood

carvings on the back of the choir chairs are a highlight especially worth

seeing. The poor box, which dates back to 1632, originally stood in the

middle isle but is now located in a showcase near the pulpit rise.

The original design of the church was supposed to come from the architect

Matthias Stang from Pfalz-Neuburg, but because it arrived too late,

Johann Carl from Nuremberg, an armourer, fortress architect and engineer,

was commissioned. This design has regional and Dutch influences, with

the flat look of the longhouse which resembles the Lusthaus in Stuttgart

designed by Georg Beers. The structure also conforms to other building

styles in Regensburg with a tower homogenous to the Jakobskirche and

Neupfarrkirche. Particularly interesting is the columnless design of longhouse;

the gallery is actually the only thing supported in the building by

columns.

Paintings in the church, such as the full body portrait of Luther and Melanchton,

originate from the 17th century. Other attractions include the

small cemetery, running as a narrow strip alongside the church, which

includes a row of baroque-styled grave monuments, as well as the last resting

place of former foreign parliament members. But above all, do not

forget to climb up the tower where you can enjoy breath-taking views of

the ‘old city’!

once filled with gems. The exact interpretation or meaning

of the portal is still in debate. One widely accepted theory

by Franz Dietheuer, states: the arch above the door separates

the heavens from the last judgement below where

Satan, evil beings, infidel Jews, heathens, and bad Christians

are all to face trial. Christ stands in the middle with 6

apostles on each side to create an even balance. Flanked

on the outside are two saints: Emperor Charlemagne and

Archbishop Patrick. The other figures and numerous arches

have received many interpretations ranging from the planetary

motions, wind, signs of earth, the antichrist Saladin,

and further interpretation is still required today. Most theories

have religious connotations dealing with Judgement

Day and the resurrection. The monastery was then run by

Scottish abbots in 1520. Despite it being well managed, it

declined during the trials and tribulations of secularization.

The administration was passed on to bishops in 1866, and

the building has since been used as a priest seminary.

Bismarckplatz

Haidplatz

‘Haidplatz’ derives its name from a

wasteland that is sparsely overgrown,

known as a ‘Haide’. The ‘Haid’ as it was

often referred to as, was originally

much larger and open. During the

middle ages, the square shrunk in size

due to surrounding construction, but

it still offered ample room for various

events. Documents from the 12th

century state that the ‘Haid’ had been

host for large Knight Tournaments,

and one chronicle reported over 300

knights for a particular tournament

in 1393. The area also attracted many

jugglers, inventors, and exhibitionists

to perform. In 1673 there was a legendary

performance by the Frenchman

Charles Bernovin, who fell to his death

as he attempted to tight-rope across

the square strapped with fireworks to

his body. This square is enclosed by

This square is named after the Reich Chancellor Otto von Bismarck,

an honorary citizen of Regensburg. It has been a traffic intersection

dating as far back as the ‘Castra Regina’ times, where it was located

in front of the fort’s Roman wall. In medieval times, the square

was home to an arsenal, granary, corn warehouse, and stables.

The presidential headquarters (now the police headquarters) are located

at the north end of the square. This classical building was built

by the then prince and Archbishop of Regensburg, Carl von Dalberg in

1805 for the French envoy and ‘perpetual parliament’. This building was

the first to introduce classicism to the city, which had previously a purely

medieval image. The six massive limestone columns with Corinthian capitals

are especially striking. Its counterpart across the square is the city

theatre built for public use in 1804. The theatre was previously only accessible

to nobles and the elite. In 1980/81, the square was renovated to

accommodate an underground garage. This construction project added

the 2 water fountains, a new cobbled surface, and the southern terrace.

Over the south-west corner of the square is the Benedictine Abbey of St.

Jakob. Across the square in the north-eastern corner is the Erbprinzenpalais

(Palace to the Heir to the Throne), which Otto Krafft v. Prüfening

built as a hostel for the cloister in 1701. Since 1815, this has been owned

by the Thurn & Taxis family. Nestled in the south-eastern corner near the

police headquarters, is the Schneckbachhaus. Here, the first evangelical

service in Regensburg was held in 1541. The building received its current

Baroque-styled make-over in 1742. It also served as legation for

the Duke of Württemberg. Today, Bismarckplatz is one of Regensburg’s

most beautiful and communicative squares!

several historical buildings, such as

the “Neue Waag” or ‘New Scale’ (Haidplatz

1); a patrician house that was

changed in 1441 to the “Stadtwaage”

or “City Scales”. The ‘Arch’ (Haidplatz

3 & 4) is a veritable Gothic construction,

whose massive front defines the

square with its overwhelming appearance.

The former inn, ‘Zum Goldenen

Kreuz’ (to the Golden Cross) has a

castle- like look and once served as

quarters for high-ranking diplomats,

princes, kings, and emperors. The

elegant facade of Haidplatz 8 is the

Thon-Dittmer-Palais. This complex

holds the Department of Culture, the

city library, the adult educational centre,

and a theater. The 4 wings of the

building enclose an intimate courtyard,

which is used today for open-air

events. In the basement of the south

wing is an area for various art exhibitions

as well as the 14th century Sigismund

Chapel.

Alter Kornmarkt

The Romans had used this area to house their officers, prefects,

crew quarters, and baths. In 400 AD, the Germanic

tribe called the Bavarii, left the Castra Regina, and declared

Regensburg the capital of Bavaria with the Corn market as

their residence. The residence was expanded in 850 for the

Carolingian palace in addition to the Palatinate Chapel (later

called the Old Chapel), which were added at this time. The

emperor, bishops, and representatives also held their meetings

for the Reich (empire) here. The ‘Herzogshof’ (Duke’s

Court) is now a hotel worth seeing! It is still maintained by

the Wittelsbachern, who resided in the building until 1245.

The Herzoghof is connected with an arched buttress to the

Römerturm or Roman tower, formerly known as the Heidenturm

or Pagan-Tower. The tower is 28 meters high with 4-meter

thick walls. It served as a place of refuge from attacks, as

well as an archive and treasure chamber. For a long period of

time the Corn Market was used not only for impressive military

parades and tournaments, but also bloodthirsty justice of

the middle ages. Up until 1830, it served as the grain market

for Regensburg, which was later moved to Haidplatz.

Neighboring the Corn Market is the Niedermünsterstift

(Niedermünstergasse), a convent housing the resting place

of Saint Erhard (700AD). The convent was rather liberal as it

allowed women to withdraw from sisterhood and even wed

O

after retirement. The convent had connections to the house

of the Bavarian Duke and enjoyed many imperial freedoms,

which remained in place until secularization. The Niedermünster

Church is actually the 4th church to stand here

today. All four churches have had the exact same measurements,

beginning at the head of Saint Erhard’s tomb. Also located

on the square is the Karmelitenkloster St. Josef (Carmelite

Cloister), whose foundation was laid in 1641 by Emperor

Ferdinand III and completed in 1672. The ‘Echter Regensburger

Karmelitengeist” (medicinal water) was created by Father

Ulrich Eberskirch in 1721 and is very well known. Noteworthy

here is the western façade in baroque style.

Dreifaltigkeitsberg-skyline view

The city district of ‘Steinweg-Pfaffenstein’ is home to Dreifaltigkeitsberg

(Holy Trinity Mountain), also known as Osterberg

(Easter Mountain). Dreifaltigkeitsweg, a path from Steinweg,

leads up the mountain to the Church of the Saints of Trinity

(Dreifaltigkeitskirche). Deciduous trees line the ‘Kreuzweg” with

14 beautiful shrines illustrating the Passion of Christ - bas-reliefs

done on gold backgrounds. The cross pillars have the names of

their benefactors and originate from 1845. From atop the hill,

there is a gorgeous view of the city with St. Peters Cathedral and

all of its surroundings. A cemetery borders the Church of Holy

Trinity here on the hilltop. When the last outbreak of the Plague

reached Regensburg in 1713, the residents of Steinweg and

Stadtamhof built a church here in an effort to avert this Godly

punishment.

The foundation was laid in the midst of the Plagues rage and

was finished in 1715. Highlights of the church include the retral

ceiling paintings, the tombstone of Michael Schlecht, the Plague

memorial, the baptismal font, the gothic stone relief of the

cross, confession boxes (1732-35), and the Pieta from 1717. The

altar pictures were painted by the renowned Johann Gebhardt

from Prüfening in the early 18th century. The ceiling fresco was

painted more recently by Karl Manninger in 1961.


P

Neupfarrplatz

Regensburg had one of the oldest Jewish communities in Germany, with a Talmud

university as well as a cemetery located on the outskirts of the city. The

community, including students, had a population between 400-600 people and

created a ‘city within a city’. This micro-city was located at the present day Neupfarrplatz

and included some surrounding buildings: approximately 30 houses

were connected with bridges and underground passageways. It was a walled-in

enclosure with many doorways that separated it from the Christian communtiy

surrounding it. The “ghetto” was destroyed in 1519, triggered perhaps by

Regensburg’s economic depression, jealousy and Anti-Semitism. After the death

of Emperor Maximillian I, who had guaranteed protection for the Jews, the Christian

community quickly displayed their long withheld hatred. Council members

confronted the Jewish community and gave them 4 days to leave the city. They

were allowed to take all their personal belongings, except the Christian objects

that the Jews held as collateral from business trades. To their own dismay, the

Jews chose to destroy their holy objects that they could not take with them rather

than hand them over to the Christians. During the winter months, the Jews

were then driven out of the city. Two ships were provided in the Danube for the

Jews to leave, while many settled across the river in Stadtamhof, or went on to

Sallern. Demolition of the ghetto was quick and even described as ‘God’s work’.

Maria’s chapel of worship was erected shortly thereafter, and the people celebrated

with a pilgrimage. The square was a parking area until 1995, when it was

redesigned and excavation unearthed parts of the synagogue und many mugs

with golden coins.

Q

Stadtamhof

In the middle ages, with about 2000 inhabitants, Stadtamhof

was a small Bavarian neighborhood in the middle

of the independent city Regensburg and thus often a hot

bed of conflict. Earliest evidence shows that this area was

first settled in 981 as an estate belonging to the Emmeram

Cloister. It reached city status in 1496, and in 1924 became

incorporated with the city of Regensburg. It sunk deep

into poverty after the war, before flourishing to its present

day charm.

The clock still ticks a bit different in Stadtamhof, even today.

Residents enjoy the offset location on the banks of the

Danube where they are a stone’s throw to the city, yet still

set apart. Small shops and stores are still run by the same

families generations old. You stumble upon many picturesque

nooks and idyllic courtyards. Its’ historical status

also offers many sights worth seeing such as the Rococo

church and the former Monastery Church St. Mang. The

2-story former salt depot, Andreasstadel (Andreas Depot) is

also quite interesting. Today it is a hotel, cafe, art academy,

movie theatre and houses private apartments. The depot,

dating back to the 16th century, originally competed with

the larger salt trade across the river and is the oldest secular

building still standing in Stadtamhof today.

Across the Europa Canal is the city’s main gate and a restored

locomotive from the Valhalla train, which up until

1960 brought passengers to Wörth an der Donau. Also in

existence today is the Katharine Hospital and Spitalkirche

(Hospital Church), along with their ever beloved and spacious

beer garden.

beautiful shops as far as nearby Arnulfsplatz, which makes Ziegler‘s delicatessen

easy to reach by bus.

Special features

When you enter Markus Ziegler‘s delicatessen, you will not meet a shop owner

but rather a connoisseur who personally travels to his farmer acquaintances

in Italy for the olive harvest and who combs through the most remote corners

of the Mediterranean regions in the search of culinary delicacies – always on

the look out for something rare and special for him to take with him and present

to his customers with a sparkle in his eyes. The name Ziegler has been

long associated with a premium selection of exquisite oils and vinegars - and

wine, whisky or rum connoisseurs will greatly appreciate what they find there.

Not only southern regions are grazed for their sumptuous treasures - but

also the rough north or other areas which he believes could be worthwhile,

for handmade pasta, pickled and dried foods, aromatic cheeses, truffle salami,

Scottish salmon, caviar,

premium spices and much,

much more. It goes without

saying that good things can

also be found close to home

which is why those searching

for regional delicacies will also

find what they are looking for

at Ziegler Feine Kost.

Location

The Historisches Eck lies on one of the most beautiful streets in the heart of

Regensburg‘s historic Old Town. The vault stemming from the 16th century

- making it one of the oldest in the town – was once a chapel for salt carriers.

The salt trade was an important source of income for the city during Medieval

times. Using ropes, the salt was pulled from the boats onto the Stone Bridge

and then weighed. Proof of this can still be found today in the „Salzstadel“

(salt warehouse) building located next to the Stone Bridge.

About the restaurant

A dialogue between tradition and the appeal of the unknown, a discreet and

friendly atmosphere in puristic, modern surroundings. In the Historisches

Eck, head chef Anton Schmaus and his team ensure that this restaurant appeals

to all of its guests‘ senses. Embedded in such completely exceptional

surroundings, visitors do not find it difficult to follow this restaurant‘s philosophy.

„Making the guest happy“ is what Anton Schmaus considers to be the

Historisches Eck’s highest priority.

Our specialities

This, the only star-rated restaurant in the city, offers an extensive selection of

à la carte dishes and a theme-based menu which changes on a monthly basis.

The Historisches Eck also offers a premium-class business lunch. The guest

can assemble his or her own menu based on a range of 12

different products. The wine list, which specializes in German and Austrian

wines, will turn your visit into a unequalled culinary event.

tourists alike. Looking out of the window, you have a direct view of the old

City Hall and a scene that encompasses a city steeped in history. For over

half a millennium, this was a meeting place for powerful regional leaders

who moved Regensburg right into the spotlight of European history. Food

is served all day.

beers from the Munich ‘Hofbräu’ brewery, are not just famous in Regensburg.

The Restaurant

If you are looking for a high-class restaurant in Regensburg then Kreutzers

tip to being an integral part of the Regensburg gourmet scene. The

team of 18, led by head chef Matthias Kreutzer and manager Petra Helmke,

ensure that the restaurant and kitchen alike are clearly defined and stylishly

presented. This can be seen in the design of the restaurant: modern, exclusive

and high-quality without being unnecessarily over the top. The openplan

lounge bar area flows seamlessly into the restaurant so that, at the right

time of the evening, a ‘club atmosphere’ feeling seeps into the gourmet restaurant.

Our Specialities

The charcoal grill (our speciality Irish Herford beef steak and US rib eye)

at the centre of the restaurant provides a focal point that allows guests to

follow the preparation of their dishes. Whether it be oysters, caviar or foie

gras, these classics of the 70s and 80s have established themselves as palate

pleasers.

For the comfort of our guests we have 50 parking spaces directly in front of

the restaurant. Kreutzers Restaurant can also exclusively accommodate parties

for 20, 50 or over 80 people in specially-dedicated areas. A reservation is

absolutely essential for such occasions.

Association. The three magic words of this cuisine are fresh, regional and

seasonal! The menu, updated daily, tends towards local cuisine with Italian

influences and offers a rich selection of Mediterranean specialities. The wine

list -- which is short but sweet -- remains European.

Location/View

At Restaurant Brandner (in the SORAT Hotel), you can enjoy freshly innovative,

award-winning cuisine directly on the banks of the Danube. Our numerous

culinary delights are enhanced by a unique, breath-taking view of

the outline of the Old City.

The Restaurant

Restaurant Brandner is among the 100 best German restaurants recommended

by the gourmet magazine Der Feinschmecker. With a wide range

of highlights from the „new in-vogue cuisine“, you can eat whatever your

heart desires - from regional specialities such as an Upper Palitinate char

fillet served on a hot stone to a Regensburger „Brandner Pfandl“ skillet dish

with wild garlic. Enjoy colourful and mouth-watering seasonal specialities

such as asparagus and strawberries or, in the essence of ‘everything that the

sea has to offer’, treat yourself to our Italian fish buffet.

Or perhaps we can tempt you with the Brandner Special, a large culinary

feast of Italian food. For something more intimate, a romantic dinner for two

may appeal to you. Equally popular is the ‘chill-out time’, a ‘happy hour’ in

which guests can relax and savour half-price exotic cocktails or long drinks.

Our Specialities

With our many culinary delights, you can enjoy delicacies which are different

to anything you have tasted before and are sure to be something you

will never forget. Why not try our „Dinner in the Dark“, a three course meal

served in total darkness and indulge yourself in a new fascinating sensory

experience.

Restaurant Brandner is the top destination for connoisseurs of every kind.

ACCOMMODATION

Location

In the middle of the

UNESCO World Heritage

city, embedded

among historic sites,

striking buildings and

other places worth

seeing, l‘Ostello sits

as a small jewel in

Regensburg‘s hotel

crown. Central yet

quiet, right next to the

pedestrian precinct

means that the city

centre can be easily

reached from here on

foot. Not far from main railway station and the central bus

station, it offers a fast and uncomplicated connection to

other means of local and long-distance transport and can

also be easily reached by car.

Facilities

The Italian flair which flows through the entire Regensburg

Old city is also continued in this hotel. It only opened

up in July 2009 following months of renovation

and has since been offering visitors to Regensburg an

unforgettable experience in this historic building which

spreads over three storeys.

Whether you are a city tourist, business traveller or a family

with children – this „lodge with breakfast“ always presents

itself in an original and tasteful manner and adapts

itself to suit the wishes of its guests.

Rooms

The l‘Ostello has a total of 14 beds in six rooms which are

individually furnished and named after famous people.

This means its guests can choose to reside in lovingly furnished

rooms named after Johannes Kepler, Albrecht Altdorfer,

Agnes Bernauer, Herzog Albrecht, Barbara Blomberg

or Don Juan d‘Austria.

Some of the rooms can be extended to form a junior suite

and those who need even more space can rent an entire

floor so that they have three rooms with two bathrooms.

Service

The l‘Ostello offers a substantial breakfast in the hotel.

Complete indulgence packages can be booked upon request

- for couples in love, active people or connoisseurs.

The L‘Ostello also has its own parking spaces which are

available if pre-booked.

and within easy walking distance from the Danube Market car park and docks

(Donaumarkt & Thundorferstraße). In our salon, the boss is still on hand to advise

our customers. “Change your hairstyle but not yourself” is the motto of our life-style

hairdresser, who surprises and impresses our customers with individually tailored

fresh ideas. In Haarhouse, professional advice, individual haircuts, excellent colouring

and good value for money are all our priority. Even without an appointment,

you can visit our salon and take advantage of our flexible opening times. At the

historical city wall which can be seen in our salon. While our professionals style

your hair, you can soak up the historical atmosphere while listening to relaxing music

or browsing through high quality magazines, or perhaps you would like to surf

the internet free of charge on one of our in-house iPads. Indulge yourself in this

friendly easy-going atmosphere and experience our zest for life, all of which will

help ensure that your visit to the hairdresser enhances your holiday feeling.
