Admired for its stunning medieval city center, the small city of Regensburg is one of Bavaria’s must-visit destinations. Located in southeastern Germany on the Danube River, I fell in love with this storybook town on an exploration of the greatest Christmas markets in Europe.
Nicknamed Italy’s northernmost city, this UNESCO World Heritage spot has a rich history and is chock full of architecture that is just begging to be Instagrammed.
Regensburg is located about 80 miles from Munich and 140 miles from Salzburg.
A town of about 140,000 people, the closest airports are in Munich and Nuremberg, which is just about an hour away by train. It’s a bit off-the-beaten-path for most tourists but well worth a visit.
Regensburg has over two millennia of history, and that’s just one of the many reasons why history-buff travelers adore this town.
