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,
Mayor of Regensburg
Porta Praetoria & Castra Regina
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
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
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
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.
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
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

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
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

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

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
OPENING HOURS: April - October 6:30-18:00; November
to March 6:30-17:00
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.

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
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

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.
‘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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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

much more. It goes without

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.
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.
Completed in 1871, the Hofbräuhaus is located opposite what was the old
City Hall of the former free city of Regensburg. It has been in the hands of the
Schafbauer family since June 1988.
With its relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant is frequented by both locals and
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.
The traditional cuisine and authentic surroundings, combined with a host of
beers from the Munich ‘Hofbräu’ brewery, are not just famous in Regensburg.
In addition to the cosy and rustic guest rooms, our idyllic courtyard can also
provide the perfect setting during the summer months in which to savour our
Bavarian specialities - from traditional German sausage delicacies to cold cuts
which, after 4 pm, also include red and white headcheese, or cold meat platters
From Monday to Friday, between 11.00 am and 2.00 pm, you will find daily
menus for just 6€, ideal for working customers or indeed anyone who wishes
to take advantage of this special offer.

with one of the smooth Kneitinger beers in the company of good friends.
Whether you settle down comfortably in the brewery inn at the Arnulfsplatz
after a guided tour of the brewery or make an excursion to the rustic and likeable
Auer Bräu ... whether you enjoy a grilled treat in the Kneitinger Keller or

inn-keeping tradition and hospitality.
