Regensburg


The city of Regensburg can be found on the Donnau (Danube) River. It is a Roman city founded by Marcus Aurealis in the 1st century. Today it is famed for it intact and unrestored medieval city centre.This picture is from the old stone bridge, Steinbruke looking towards the Alter Dom. The transparent spires of the Cathederal were added in the 19th century.

  2. That is one huge clock in the front part of the photo. So now we know what really ancient looks like..very fascinating to see something from Marcus Aurelius's time...thx. I doubt that the clock was there then though.

  3. A wonderful old city - I have a rose named Regensburg so most probably it was named after this city!
