An absolute must if you visit Regensburg. A stunning baroque church within the castle grounds. I visited on a Sunday and profited from a lack of visitors as well as the opportunity to join mass.

The chapel located in the south of city center. It is the nearest sightseeing spot from Regensburg station. The chapel is not so impressive from the outside, but inside it is beautiful. I quite like the ruin-like entrance. It is a must visit when you are in Regensburg.
Beautiful abbey. Free entry. Stumbled across this by accident after admiring the murals on the outside and walking into a nondescript courtyard.
Probably one of the most impressive buildings in Regensburg. It looks absolutely stunning from the inside with its architecture and well kept religious paintings. For me it’s an absolutely must-visit in Regensburg!
One of the most interesting historic churches we visited recently in Regensburg is that St. Emmeram, a Basilica minor located at Emmeramsplatz next to the Thurn and Taxis Palace. The church history dates back to 780AD and is considered a National Shrine in Bavaria. There are quite a few interesting things to see at St. Emmeram. The church is a mixture of Romanesque and Baroque architecture. The main portion of the church nave dates back to the 8th-century but was given a High Baroque makeover by the regionally important Bavarian architects Asam Brothers in the early 18th-century. The high altar, pulpit, ceiling fresco and numerous decorations with gilding create a beautiful interior. There is a 11th-century crypt with important tombs in the back that is worth a quick visit. Given the church age, its worth reading up on its history before or during your visit. This will help create context to what you are seeing at St. Emmeram Basilica in Regensburg.
A brooding and beautiful church building in a wealthy monastery. Filled with lavish tombs in the dark Baroque splendour, this monastery church is peaceful, creepy, and wonderful all at once. The preserved corpses of saints in glass coffins make it a little macabre, but for those who are into it, it is well worth visiting.
