Favorite thing: According to legend, during the 17th century a famous French surgeon attempted to cross Regensburg’s Haidplatz square on a tight-rope. In order to make things a bit more interesting he tied fireworks to his body. His subsequent fall, coupled with the huge explosion which followed, would be material for international headlines even today!
Fondest memory: Such dramatic exhibitions don’t normally happen today but you will find jugglers, fire-eaters and stilt-men at the summer festival in Haidplatz square. One of Regensburg’s oldest squares, it originated as a triangular meadow just west of the Roman fortress. Today it is still a focal point -- with a variety of cafes, shops and pubs surrounding the square. We sat at a sidewalk table of the Café Boldenes Kreuz (# 7 Haidplatz) sipping a soft mosel wine (3.5 DM or about $1.75 US) as we studied everyday life in Regensburg.
Take a walk around the city...
Favorite thing: Take a walk around the city center and enjoy the architecture and great athmosphere of the town. We have had a great time in the restaurants and bars while having some beers and lots of great discussing with the locals, which have been very friendly. Regensburg is in Bavaria so when you like you can get here a 'Weisswurst' or a original 'Regensburger' which is a special kind of local sausage.
Favorite thing: Tourist Office

When visiting Regensburg, you...
Favorite thing: When visiting Regensburg, you have to stay at the waterfront. See the water running, see the people moving and see the ship going.
Fondest memory: Take a boat trip starting at 'Steinerne Brücke'
