    Love Lock Bridge - Eiserner Steg

    by Christine_D Written Mar 23, 2014

    The "Eiserner Steg" is a little bridge for pedestrians connecting the north and south of the Danube river in the western part of the historical city center. People startet to put love locks on the bridge. You also have a nice view on the skyline.

    You find the bridge if you walk down the street to the Danube river up north coming from Arnulfsplatz or follow the Keplerstraße in the western direction coming from Arnulfsplatz.

    The hall of fame "Walhalla" is housed in a neo-classical building above the Danube River. Even if you don't visit the inside, the building itself and the view over the Danube vally are worth going there.

    The entrance to the hall of fame is 4 € (2014), the view over the Danube river and the place itself are for free! We usually don't go inside, just enjoy the atmosphere around the bulding. Chef opening times of the hall of fame on the website.

    By car it's a 10km drive from Regensburg. There are ships along the River Danube from Regensburg. Between April 1st and October 22nd, departure daily from Old Stone Bridge in Regensburg. You can also get there by a local bus (no 5, 5B) to Donaustauf - Walhalla, leaving at the train station.

    We were sitting outdoors enjoying a coffee when we saw the bride arrive. Instantaly caught my wife's attention and the other ladies sitting nearby.

    What I liked best was the balloons, especially when they were let go and went past the Dom, being able to capture them on my camera was my highlight of the wedding.

    Our Local Guide - Regensburg Old Town.

    It helps when your local guide is enjoys her profession and can speak clear English. Our guide fot the Old City tour was excellent and gave the history of the major sights.

    Regengsburg Old Town is an easy walk, the hard part when doing the walk by yourself is obtaining the history.

    We had it served on a platter.

    After our guided tour finished we were given an hour free time. We chose to have coffee and cake on Neupfarrplatz, a good place to rest with plenty of activity on the square as we enjoyed our coffee. I noticed the Neupfarrkirche at the other end and had time for a few close up photos.

    Our tour group was waiting in the square before being taken back to our riverboat. We had 5 minutes to departure time so I walked over to the church and took a few photos. Not enough time to go inside, but well worth the effort.

    Our arrival was by riverboat as part of our 14 day cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. A great way to travel as it gives unobstructed view of the river and countryside.Our Cruise was with a company called APT. View the attached photo of the map detailing our guided walk.

    I recommend everyone should at least take a cruise on the Danube for a few hours. The web link below gives details of river cruises from a few hours to days.Regensburg is an ideal location to enjoy a short cruise.

    Niedermünster

    by Kathrin_E Written Dec 31, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    Niedermünster, located East of the cathedral, was no monastery but a convent of unmarried noble ladies who lived in a community without taking vows as nuns. After the convent was closed down in the early 19th century, the convent buildings became the seat of the Bishops of Regensburg. The church is the central catholic parish church for the old town.

    The church is almost 1000 years old, but it has been refurbished again and again, so apart from the Romanesque steeples its general appearance is baroque. The vaults have been painted to imitate stucco ornaments.

    The photos were taken in 2007. The church and convent is currently (Dec 2012) undergoing restoration works.
