the Danube River in the federal state of Bavaria. Because of its

shipyards. Regensburg has a beautiful center, mainly because it was
spared the bombing so many German cities fell victim to during WWII.
The Steinere Brucke (bridge) lies over the Danube, this is the
oldest bridge in Germany. Together with Regensburg’s Gothic
cathedral, which took 600 years to build this is the main site in
Regensburg. Regensburg has a moderate maritime climate with
