One of Germany’s oldest towns, Regensburg was founded by the Romans in 179 AD. It’s in the German federal state of Bavaria, at the northernmost point of the river Danube. Regensburg today is a thriving city of about 137,000 inhabitants and is a capital of the district of Upper Palatinate.

The town has two universities and many landmarks and little chapels, most dating back to the Middle Ages – such as the Cathedral of St. Peter, the Old City Hall and Imperial Diet, and the Stone Bridge.

According to legend there are so many chapels here, that there would always be at least one church bell ringing. Since 2006 the historic city center of Regensburg and Stadtamhof has been a UNESCO World Heritage site. Due to its narrow alleys, Regensburg is often called the northernmost city of Italy.
