Top 15 things to do in Regensburg

2. Old Stone Bridge

The fact that the 12th-century Old Stone Bridge is still standing is a tribute to medieval engineering. The bridge above the Danube links the old town with Stadtamhof. Its Bruckmandl statue was erected in the middle of the 16th century. He is said to symbolize the city's freedoms and its emancipation from the control of the Bishop. Be sure to take some photos here on what is arguably the emblem of Regensburg.

10. Basilica of the Nativity of Our Lady Regensburg

Relatively plain and unassuming from the outside, Basilica of the Nativity of Our Lady Regensburg is world-famous for its highly decorated Rococo interior. One of the city's major attractions, the core of the church is believed to be well over a thousand years old. The building's Gothic vaulted ceilings, along with several other main features, were added to the structure during the Middle Ages. Most of the rich interior decorations date to the 18th century, when Rococo was much in fashion all over Europe. Walk inside to see the site's famous image of the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus. Remember: You can take photos only if no church service is in progress while you're there.
