Old Town Hall
There are unique measurements on the door to Old Town Hall. The markings indicate the average height, shoe size, and arm length of a resident of Regensburg during the Middle Ages.
The first settlements in Regensburg date all the way back to the Stone Age!! The stones pictured here are from the original construction of the Porta Pretoria, a gateway to an ancient Roman fort built in 179 AD. They still stand after almost 2,000 years!

We came across a busy bakery in Regensburg Germany and it smelled so good we had to go in. We picked out a popular German pastry called a “Streuseltaler”. It’s a sweet yeasted cake loaded with streusel and drizzled with sweet vanilla glaze. It was amazing!! This cake is definitely one of my favorite things we had during our entire trip to Germany!
For lunch we went to the the historic Wurstkuchl, a 500 year old kitchen with a charcoal grill selling homemade sausages topped with sauerkraut and their famous sweet Wurstkuchl mustard.
The Bratwurst roll was SO good!! This was another one of my most favorite things we had on our trip to Germany.
