2. Munich: Daytrip to Regensburg with Artist Paul Riedel
Explore the dreamy historic town of Regensburg and get all the insider stories about its rich and varied past. Surrounded by iconic German architecture from the Middle Ages, artist Paul Riedel will guide you to the most historically important and picturesque locations.
Situated at the confluence of the Danube, Naab, and Regen rivers, Regensburg was originally known by the Celtic name Radasbona. Evidence of the first settlement in Regensburg dates back to the Stone Age. In the 12th and 13th centuries, it was famous for its flourishing economy with trading connections as far as Paris, Venice, and Kyiv.
Since 2006 the medieval center of Regensburg has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in 2014 Regensburg was ranked among the top sites to visit in Germany. You'll get to see the most iconic examples of architecture, like the town hall from the 14th century, the beautiful German gothic cathedral, and the famous stone bridge. The bridge is a highlight of medieval bridge-building skills and has been used as an example and model for other bridges around the world for centuries.
You'll have 3 hours of free time to explore historic Old Town on your own after your guided tour with Paul.
